Vasiliy Lomachenko vs. Teofimo Lopez: Boxing's best fight of 2020


World champions in three weight classes, several instances of making high-level boxers like Guillermo Rigondeaux and Nicholas Walters quit.


Most recently he went to enemy territory and bested fellow London 2012 gold medalist Luke Campbell to become a three-belt champ at 135 lbs.


His explosive knockouts of Mason Menard and Diego Magdeleno put the 23-year-old in prime position for an eventual title shot.


After stopping Edis Tatli and winning a somewhat lacklutser decision against Masayoshi Nakatani, he emphatically whooped Richard Commey to take his IBF lightweight title.


It’s also not as if Loma is a small-time puncher — his combination work is a thing of beauty, he can do heavy damage to the body, and he is capable of the spectacular one-shot KO just as much as he is the accumulation of punishment.


While Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury 2 will go down as boxing’s most lucrative fight of the year, this is the most anticipated in terms of skill level for both men.
