Lopes named the favorite of the Heiney fight - Lomachenko

Former undisputed world champion Teofimo Lopez commented on a possible fight between former three-division world champion Vasyl Lomachenko and undisputed world lightweight champion Devin Haney.

"I hope Haynie will fight Lomachenko. I think Devin will beat Loma considering how he looked against Ortiz. But everything can change. Maybe Lomachenko needed it to shake off the rust."

"Do I think that Lomachenko is the same after the fight with me? No, no one is the same after they fight me. No one. I deal a lot of damage to these fighters and I do it in a variety of ways. I send many to knockout."

"Lomachenko is constantly moving, constantly throwing punches. When it comes to the championship rounds, you need a second wind. I do not believe that Lomachenko is an ex. I think his age is starting to show, plus he's defending his country. It seems to me that because of this he suffered a lot."
