Tonight on ESPN, Vasyl Lomachenko and Teofimo Lopez are set to go to war.
Lomachenko (14-1, 10 KOs), long considered one of the best P4P fighters in the sport and already a three-weight champ in just 15 fights, is setting his sights on lightweight unification as he meets probably the best prospect in the sport. Certainly one of the hardest hitters either way. Lopez (15-0, 12 KOs) is maybe the first man ever that can match Loma on many levels, and is undoubtedly the toughest professional challenge of Lomachenko’s career to date.
