Despite Haney's physical edge, Lopez firmly believes that Lomachenko, the Ukrainian, will emerge victorious. 

"Size doesn't determine the fight's outcome. Loma has competed against bigger opponents before. Just consider his Olympic history - he's a two-time Olympic champion. He boasts 400 amateur fights under his belt. Professionally, he's carved out an impressive career, having been a world champion across three divisions," Lopez explained.

"Throughout his career, he's taken on all types - tall, short, heavy, light. Even though Devin boasts a strong jab, he won't be able to land the finishing blow, he's too cautious," Lopez opined in an interview with Boxing Scene.
