Even with the post-win burst of testosterone you can still see that Teofimo knows he’s the inferior animal there, licking his lips and moving around nervously.
I don’t know if Teofimo has the nerve to actually step in the ring with Lomachenko. I’d give him big credit just for being willing.

^ This.

Loma doesn't just beat you, he humiliates you.

If Lopez actually takes this fight, I'll give him huge props.

- And maybe a 20% chance of catching Loma with something significant.

At only 21 y/o he's quite impressive.

To face Loma this early in his career would be ridiculously early but he's got the momentum and belt so it's interesting.

Props to Lopez if he goes after the fight!

He’s young, talented. confident and testing himself. May not be the best thing for his career over all.... but as a fan what’s not to like!

I can't but admire the kid. He seems to have that champion mentality where even if he loses vs Loma it'll make him even better. (Time will tell/confirm of course)
Look at Shakur and Ryan dicking around in their comfort zone against uncompetitive "competition".

Champion mentality? His mentality reminds me of Broner. A mental weakling who needs to hype himself up and denigrate his opponent out of a sense of inferiority. He’ll lose and likely disappear, he has the opposite of a champion mentality.

He was born Hank Aaron Haney, in South Flintsby, New South Wales, Florida County, Michigan, fifth of April, 1987. He had a lisp, short arms and was 1/4 to 1/8 German, but mostly Chinese. His parents named him with a girl's name to fool and avoid a demon that plagued the male children of the Haney family. He would later rip the sink out of a bathroom or something and stop singing spiritual music. When he was just eleven, his father left home and his mother decided to abort his second cousin. Times were tough in the Haney family. That is when he left for Georgia on a fast train and made friends with fellow boxer Victor Ortiz. But things became bitter when they both tried to do a song about drums. Their manager said it was Ortiz's deal, and Haney turned pro, discouraged, bewildered, bewitched and be-bothered.

While he turned pro, his parents opened up a pizza parlor and Haney began to learn Kung Fu from an eccentric old man who tried to shoot him with a bow and arrow all the time. The local Shogun tried to foil Haney's plans to become a master fighter and even accosted him at a local movie theatre. They said if he beat the Shogun, he could beat The Matrix, another master from another world, different to that of his own world of dance TV, pizza and martial arts. Vanity was always Haney's problem. He believed in himself too much and changed his name to Hammerin' Hank, to honour the sodium bicarbonate guy with the arm. But then he had to change that name too, to Homicide Hank Aaron Lundy. No one knew that one day, just thirty years after that, in one of the next century eras, that he would be a potential defeater of the nearly undefeated Vaselini Lomachenkovalevschko. AKA...The Matrix. A man who, counting his amateur background, was 1000-6 with 1 newspaper no contest. All six losses were either avenged or masterfully ignored.

Broner was/is a boring fighter though.

He has the balls to go out of his comfort zone and fight Loma at 21 y/o. He doesn't have to. Ryan and Shakur are content fighting no hopers and padding their records.

Why doesnt he like him as a person? I find loma pretty likeble
A lot of fighters need to find reasons to hate their opponents.

Helps with motivation, sharpness, and managing fear. Some guys find it harder to really bring it when they like the person they are fighting.

Also Lopez seems like a fairly disagreeable chap in general. There's probably a lot of people he doesn't like.
