Teddy Atlas previews Vasily Lomachenko vs. Teofimo Lopez


Atlas feels that Teofimo is more physically gifted than Lomachenko, 32, in size, speed, power, and raw talent.


The risk that Lomachenko will be taking with his aggressive counter-punching style will put him in harm’s way the entire fight against Lopez.


Physically, even though he doesn’t have the natural genetics, he’s worked on specific exercises and training to make himself very strong,” Atlas said of Lomachenko.


Lomachenko throws a lot of weaker shots, and it’s not as interesting to watch compared to the big punchers like Gervonta Davis and Teofimo.


Lomachenko’s contests against Jorge Linares, Luke Campbell, and Jose Pedraza showed that he is beginning to deteriorate as a fighter.


“That was a competitive one-sided fight where you knew that Loma was in charge, but he got shaken a couple of times,” said Atlas about Lomachenko’s last contest against Luke Campbell.
