The fight happened on October 17, 2020.Lopez, 23, dominated the first half of the Teofimo fight and, despite a late rally by Lomachenko, was awarded a 116-112, 119-109, 117-111 win by the judges.
The fight between the two rivals had been eagerly awaited but took place without any fans because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Vasyl Lomachenko was kept quiet early on and, although he put in a strong effort in the later rounds, it was not enough to stop him from suffering a second defeat from his 15 fights.
“I think I won the fight,” Vasyl Lomachenko said after his first loss in six years. “But I am not going to argue it now.
“In the first half of the fight, he won more rounds. In the second half, I took it over. I don’t agree with the scorecards.”
But after the big defeat, the boxer is back.
Lomachenko’s opponent for April or May is still unknown, but it’s likely to be one of the top guys at 130 or 135. Regrettably, Teofimo Lopez and his father have moved on, and they won’t be revisiting a second fight against the two-time Olympic gold medalist Lomachenko.
The good news for Lomachenko is the three lightweights titles that Teofimo took from him on October 17th will soon be vacated. If Lomachenko decides to stay at 135, he’ll have a chance to recapture them potentially in 2022.
