Future rival Vasyl Lomachenko, Teofilo Lopez, said that after the fight with the Ukrainian intends to replace weight category:
“I have more than 7 years in the lightweight division. I now 22 years old, I’m getting older and still growing, my body is growing and my weight tends to be higher. I’m at 63.5 and end at 67.7.
Soon it will happen, but one thing now – you need to try to stay in the lightweight division during the quarantine, to pick a fight with Lomachenko. With him will be my last fight at lightweight for all four titles to become undisputed champion and rise above.”
Earlier, Lopez said he did not think Lomachenko is the best in the world.
