The undefeated IBF champion was physically bigger than 'Loma', who struggled to get into his usual mesmeric style. Many people commented as the fight reached the mid rounds how cautios Lomachenko was, after a build up that had seen both men talk big about their chances of winning. With this in mind, it was Lopez who appeared more active and busy as Loma tried to operate from the back foot.
As Lopez made it rain right hands Lomachenko couldn't keep up with the younger fighters size or power.
It would be fair to say the later stages of the fight Lomachenko began to produce, but it was clear by this point he needed a KO for victory.
Lopez was tiring and the last round saw an out and out dog fight between the two champions, but Lopez stood tight and now becomes undisputed lightweight champion.
