Despite the delay, Teofimo Lopez will still collide with Lomachenko when the whole Corona virus issue is over but there is no specific time and date for the event but there is a plan for the two to collide before the year runs out.
Lopez has made clear he doesn’t like Lomachenko at all and will take every pleasure in knocking out the Ukrainia, when they eventually meet in the ring
“I’m going to enjoy knocking him the f— out and not feel any remorse whatever,” Lopez told CBS Sports’ “State of Combat” podcast this week. “That’s just it. I do not personally like the guy. With Richard Commey, I liked the guy but I did what I had to do. There’s business and then there is personal. This right here is personal. I just don’t like the dude. I don’t like how he says things and don’t like how he is. When that day comes when we fight, I can’t wait. I can’t wait to knock his head off and that’s just that.
“It’s the look, the way he presents himself, the way that he is. I don’t know what it is. You ever seen someone that you just look at and you are saying, ‘Man, I want to punch them in the face’? Maybe not. Maybe it’s just a me thing. I don’t get that a lot, there are some people I can vibe to and just chill with and hang out. But there are some people I just can’t and they annoy me, they bug me in just their presence being there in the same room.
“My energy doesn’t like his energy. It just started getting bigger and I saw how he was to other people. I was like, ‘F— this guy, personally.”
