Three division entire world winner Vasiliy Lomachenko admits he was surprised by Teofimo Lopez remaining stunned by George Kambosos previous Saturday night time at Hulu Theater in Las Vegas.
Very last year, Lomachenko’s top status at 135-pounds was derailed when he missing a twelve spherical determination to Lopez – who in his to start with protection was unseated by huge underdog Kambosos.
Kambosos now retains the WBA, WBC Franchise, IBF, IBO light-weight titles.
Lomachenko has by now bounced back again from the Lopez decline, when he created his return to the ring in June with a vicious stoppage of Masayoshi Nakatani.
He will proceed to develop his route to a different environment title shot when he faces former champion Richard Commey.
And the two-time Olympic gold medal winner is surely keen for a planet title shot at Kambosos in 2022.
“Of study course, for belts. It truly is my aim in boxing now. Undisputed entire world winner, this is my motivation,” Lomachenko explained to Sky Sports.
“We’ll see [if a fight with Kambosos will happen]. Of study course, I want this combat, but initially of all I have a fight on December 11, and my concentration is on this combat. Following this battle, I can talk about my future.”
Lomachenko gave Kambosos a shot to pull off the upset, but in the end he felt Lopez would arrive away with the victory.
“Prior to the struggle, I gave some prospect for Kambosos, but of system I assumed Lopez would gain this combat,” claimed Lomachenko. “But it is what it is. This is boxing existence.”
Prior to previous year’s defeat, Lomachenko was regarded as a single of the finest pound-for-pound fighters in the world.
The two times-overwhelmed boxer reported the general public will make your mind up if he even now justifies this kind of superior recognition.
“I will not want to talk about myself,” mentioned Lomachenko. “It truly is a dilemma for admirers, it’s a dilemma for men and women who have an understanding of boxing. But if you’re talking about my talent, I generally try out to present my greatest type, my finest skill.”
