Thriller: Loma vs López THIS Saturday in Las Vegas; Who Wins?

Tue, 13 Oct 2020
It couldn’t get any better: the thrilling WBA/WBO Lightweight World Champion Ukrainian “Hi-Tech” Vasiliy Lomachenko (14-1, 10 KO’s) is set to lock horns in exciting unification battle against cocky Honduran-American young gun IBF king Teófimo López (15-0, 12 KO’s) this Saturday, October 17 @ the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Fans are wondering who will emerge victorious.
The Latino 23-year-old Teófimo López – the daring puncher of Honduran blood who lives in Brooklyn, New York – has grabbed fans attention with his jaw-dropping stoppage wins and backflip jump celebrations.
Since making his pro debut in 2016, Teófimo has quickly emerged as a young boxing superstar for his charisma and thrilling fan-pleasing knockout triumphs.
Hate him or love him, Teófimo López has earned this Saturday’s stirring unification battle against one of Earth’s pound-4-pound best fighters who is absolutely the best lightweight warrior in today’s boxing.
The mission is not easy: to outgun the far more accomplished two-time Olympic gold medalist Lomachenko, the hologram fighter who can read opponent’s moves same as Neo from The Matrix.
Will Loma be way too much skilled, too unreadable and too awesome for the fast ‘n furious, heavy-handed young braggart Teófimo?
Or will this fast slugger Teófimo López rock, shock and overpower the immensely talented Loma, doing to him something brutal and stunning that no man in this 3rd dimension reality has ever done to him?
Salido harassed and decisioned Loma in 2016, and Linares dropped him down on his ass during the 6th chapter of their 2018 battle; could Teófimo do even better against the fantastic Loma better than those two men did?
Boxing fans, we just can’t wait.. and what do you think?
This hot World Title Unification fight is promoted by Bob Arum’s Top Rank, live on ESPN.
Loma vs López in electrifying lightweight action. May the Best Man Win.!!
