Notching most of their professional wins by knockouts, they are two of the biggest KO artists in the lightweight unit. Thus, the person to land the first shot might get the title and the win. However, the contest also has the chance of going the distance.
Lopez can dominate the fight on certain occasions. That said, Lomachenko won’t be an easy target for him. The Ukrainian has tested himself against some of the best active boxers. He is fresh off a victory over Luke Campbell, and Teofimo cannot afford to underestimate his skills inside the ring.
