Lomachenko Lopez Final Press Conference



WBC Franchise/WBO/WBA lightweight world champion Vasiliy Lomachenko and IBF kingpin Teofimo Lopez shared the stage for Wednesday's final press conference ahead of their showdown. The two square off this Saturday at the Bubble at MGM Grand Conference Center live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+



Vasiliy Lomachenko "I won't know {how the layoff will impact me} until Saturday night. I have never been out of the ring for one full year like this. Ever. I don't know how it will be." “I think it’s just a ring and judges and TV. That’s it. And, of course, four belts.” “I’m thinking only about my future fight and the fight on Saturday. That’s it." “For me, I think it will be a chess match.”



Teofimo Lopez

“Hard work pays off. Eighteen years in, and it’s just the beginning, You haven’t seen anything yet.”


“The Takeover is not just a phrase we throw out there. This is the part where I’m leading the new generation. Winning this is a stamp and a mark to put on for the new era.”


"Get your popcorn ready and just enjoy the show. It's 'The Takeover.'"


“A true champion can adapt to everything. It goes for both of us. He fought in arenas sold out. I fought in arenas sold out. My job and my thing are having all of these belts wrapped around me.”
