A Teofimo Lopez vs Vasyl Lomachenko review - The One BIG Lesson to Learn

222 Áhorf 23 þ.
Íþróttir

I watched a few fights involving Teofimo Lopez ahead of his showdown with Vasyl Lomachenko. To my shame I had not kept an eye on his development.
To be quite honest though, I did not think that Lopez would have the variety and versatility to overcome Lomachenko.
Lopez was clearly a top boxer. Good style, precise skills, good hand speed, physically big and a real power puncher.
But this is Lomachenko we're talking about. To beat Lomachenko you have to to have something bigger than conventionally good boxing skills and power.
Well, it turns out that Teofimo Lopez has exactly the thing needed to beat Lomachenko...a brilliant boxing brain and a superbly simple and effective strategy.
The fight between Lomachenko and Lopez was classically a fight of two halves - Lopez dominating the first 6 rounds and Lomachenko coming back strong in the final 6 rounds.
In the video I talk through:
1. How Teofimo Lopez forced Lomachenko to be passive.
2. How Lopez denied Lomachenko the opportunity to use his mesmeric angles.
3. How Lopez ensured that he kept on being the aggressor without over-committing once.
All of these things were delivered because of one simple element - a defensive posture coupled with an offensive style.
Will we get to see a return? I hope so, I think there is plenty of mileage in the competition between these guys. We will see, the politics of boxing has a way of denying us this type of spectacle :-(

    Good insight, I would also add that Lopez also pivoted really quickly to his Right and timed this right, whenever Lomachenko tried to step outside the line on Lopez's left side (Lomachenko's signature "matrix" move) Lomachenko in the second half of the fight was forced to rush-in and exchange, hence the head-butt's. Great fight!! I had it 116:112 Lopez. (1-7 and 12)

    If it wasn’t about power loma wouldn’t wait for so long to attack in all his fights he doesn’t even wait for others to overcommit he just attacks nonstop he was afraid of the right hand just look at round when he got knocked down by linares in that round he became very defensive against linares just like in the 6-7 round against Lopez it was just fear of getting knocked out

    Lopez tempo is what won it. And how he imposed the tempo for the first five and then slowly that control slipped away. I do think had Loma been more imposing, even nominally, Lopez would have lost a few rounds and perhaps would have been knocked down...

      But his tempo and his ability to impose himself on the fight came from the defensive/aggressive hybrid stance.. Stop trying to be smart you’re just saying the same thing a different way and in your head believing that you’re adding something to the discussion

    Fran thank you! I couldn’t quite get my head around what Lopez was doing, for the fight to go the way it did. I could see he was ahead and that Lomachenko didn’t look on his game, particularly in those first six rounds. Of course there were other factors, but your explanation is spot on, I believe. Well spotted and kudos to whoever worked out the Lopez fight plan in the first place!

    Lopez didn’t dominate Lomachenko for the first six rounds. Rather, Lomachenko simply didn’t engage Lopez and that gave Lopez the automatic ability to land one or two shots in a round and win it. Once Lomachenko actually decided to mix it up he was landing consistently and in most cases not getting hit back.

    It was not a stance matter. Lomachenko just give Lopez the first 6 rounds because he was too much respectful of Lopez power. While Loma was making the adjustments Lopez was winning the rounds. Later Lomachenko find the way to beat Lopez very effectively using angles and Lopez looks very tired and his power was no so much hard. Lomachenko took too much time to adjust that was the problem. Close fight.

    I kind of agree, in that Lopez's feet (footwork and foot speed) were the thing that surprised me most in this fight. Lopez won for a number of reasons. His size, speed, power and youth definitely played into it. If those guys are the same size, does it play out the same? I doubt it. Loma would likely have forced the issue earlier, getting onto the front foot and taking control from there. After all, once he got on the front foot, he was pretty much landing at will. Another thing was that Lopez wasn't reacting to Loma's feints. He couldn't use his feints to get a read on Lopez and start to work his way inside safely. In general, this fight was always about whether Loma would be able to get on the front foot. I assumed he would, after a few rounds, as he always does. And I was right - it's just that "a few rounds" turned out to be 7 rounds rather than 3! But as you say, that's down to Lopez. I thought it was really the whole package from Lopez. His natural/physical attributes, his mental attitude, his overall game plan, his footwork, his power, suddenness, accuracy, his level changes, his broken rhythms - and yes, forward pressure while maintaining a reactive stance. (Canelo is another one who does this really well, but not with the same lightness of foot.) All together, it was enough to keep Loma in his box, forcing him to constantly react and reset, react and reset, react and reset. For the first 7 rounds, Lopez was the one asking the questions, controlling Loma. And to be honest, he was making it look easy.

    the speed played a huge part to. I think it was one point in the early round where Loma tried to side step Lopez who just pivoted off his front foot fast with ease and hit Loma with a counter shot up off that pivot. I remember that you could tell by Lomas demeanour, that it totally puzzled him.

    1. MMikelle Dawson
      MMikelle Dawson

      That was something I noticed as well. Whenever Loma tried that Lopez would just pivot with him and Loma couldn't get off like he wanted to. I also believe that Loma felt that power and that's why he was reluctant to truly open up in the early rounds and go after Lopez. I think if he had done that he probably would've gotten knocked out, so he waited until the later rounds and even then he was still reluctant because Lopez was ready to go to war and take some to give some. I would love to see a rematch and see what Loma would try to pull off and how Lopez would react. Great fight form the young man Lopez. Crazy thing is I had a gut feeling that Lopez was going to beat him and he did.

    Shoulder was the factor for me yes Lopez balance was neutral but Loma made him still reach and was countering with head shots 2,5,6 aswell as rounds 7,8 9 10,11 where he was aggressive but Loma wasn't using right hook or jab which he sets up with and right body shot which Loma avoided throwing near all fight so it was a shoulder problem as a evasive fighter myself it is easier to move sideways if reading punches and hooks which Lopez telegraphs then dodgy them backwards but if countering is hurting which makes sense cuz just as he had his timing in 2nd round which he won he then went back to moving backward instead of laterally and i still had Loma winning as he blocked and deflected most of Lopez punches mixed in with fast straight counters and blocks on way out which commentary said Lopez was scoring well very few which technically Loma won 2,5,6,7,8,9,10,11 and even 3,4,12 were close Lopez thru harder punches but not many scoring 1's even to body Loma blocked most of then so who did Lopez win and why did so many top fighters have at least a draw straight after fight i saw a draw watching on my phone listen to commentary and when Loma said he thought he won o watched closer and he out scored Lopez just as he said

    What you say is true true for not only boxing but all striking arts as well. I remember In UFC Lyoto Machida was in a similar situation with Chris Weidman. Being a high level karate practitioner, he always relied on his counter punching skills and baiting opponents to commit. But Chris didn't take that extra step so Lyoto had to go on the offensive but it was too late.

      Loma had no choice. If he'd gone ANY Earlier, he would have been K T.F.O. Lopez was too fast, too strong and too technically proficient, for way too far into the fight. If the fight gave hadve gone just one more round, though, Loma could've knocked him out. Lopez was almost burnt to a crisp, at the end of the twelfth. He put together a pretty solid flurry, to save his victory. Great effort by both men!

It's up to folks like us who can call a spade a spade and say that if Loma wants it, a rematch is what's best for the sport. It was high level, it was competitive, and I don't mean to say that it was inconclusive in that there wasn't a clear winner. I just think a few more rounds (like the old school 15 rounds) would've been appropriate. Loma was coming on, Lopez sealed it. However, the conclusiveness of a few more rounds would've made for one of the most memorable finishes in boxing history. The next best thing in this era is a rematch.

    Lomachenko was still wearing soiled panties from the weight ins when he entered the ring. In fact lomachenko can win the tour of France going back. Bitch was so scared. He had to head bunt and do trapping and hit behind the head. If he is that good why needed to do that. And then talk so much shit. That hes namr now is lomashit

    Great break down of the sweet science. A scientist in his lab doing his thing. I've got the fight close...that cut over Lopez eyes from Loma was brutal. Heard nobody talked about that. Although Lopez won Loma did him some great damage.

      Loma was frustrated with his first half performance and decided to head butt in order to get Lopez off his game. It also worked for a little bit but then Lopez adjusted like a Veteran. Lopez was able to handle Lomas 2nd half and countered handled it like a tru champ. Sad to see Loma so frustrated and go the dirty route and still lose. Respect to the young 23 year old who kept his composure and didn't lose his cool. #LopezTheChamp

    What l notice was that Lopez lead foot dominance was the keep point. Mayweather and Roy Jones Jr keeps their lead foot between their left handed opponents feet giving them jab leverage. Loma pivot moves never worked because he would have been out of position and what l realize that Loma did not adjust which was a bit disappointing. Thanks Coach!

      @smitty81378 We both aren’t wrong, but landing a jab on a southpaw is based on inside position of the lead foot position is an advance tactic, thats what l was trying to state. Southpaw understand that you are going to try and get the lead foot position because it’s the conventional way of winning a fight, however stepping in added a different look to a southpaw. Watch any Mayweather fight against a southpaw he does this tactic all the time. What bother me was Lopez trying to should roll a southpaw which isn’t a good idea.. Love the conversation!

      Gemayel Pennegan that IS the classic way, but there are multiple ways to skin a cat. I think (and I could be wrong here) Lopez’s strategy was to not fight for outside foot position, but rather keep his lead foot just inside and pressure Loma by walking him down. That approach fits well with the bladed (almost philly shell stance) he used for much of the fight. Our back and forth on this is the beauty of the sweet science.

      @smitty81378 Actually you only use your lead foot outside of a lefty opponent's lead foot to land the straight right. If you want to land a jab you move to your right if your right-handed to land the jab. Timothy Brandly says it word for word in the 2nd round at 2.23 mins mark into the round. I do this while sparring lefty all the time.

      Gemayel Pennegan Lopez actually kept his lead foot inside Loma’s for much of the fight. The pivots didn’t work because Loma couldn’t occupy Lopez’s guard or vision with his light jabs and probes. Lopez’s longer reach and bladed stance kept Loma on the outside. You can pivot or turn an opponent from outside.

      Sorry but if you are purely watching the feet then you are watching kick boxing or maybe ballet. Stance sets up your shots.... Eg Mike tyson with a very square stance or lennox lewis with an almost fencing style stance ...Mike tyson's right hook to the body, step right, right uppercut or Lewis's jab and shoulder roll.....set up by the stance...delivered by the arms, attached to a torso, powered by the hips and legs......not purely the work of the legs....people who know boxing watch everything!!!!!

      David Fernandez Lopez is a bad stylistic match up. Fran’s analysis is spot on, the one thing he didn’t mention (at least explicitly) was that Lopez’s rear hand was locked and loaded in that stance, which meant Loma couldn’t throw those pitty pat jabs and probes he typically uses to set up his offense and footwork, for fear of being countered. I think Loma needs to scratch his classic style and add more “punch/feint, pull, counters” to the playbook. Basically bait and counter the counter puncher. If he can land a few good counters early, it might cause Lopez to hesitate. Unbridled aggression will just get Loma KO’d

      The fact that you think that Loma lost three rounds during the second part of the fight makes you a boxing illiterate in my book. Lomachenko actually stole the fourth round and won every single round after the sixth except the 12th. What in the world are you looking at when you say that he lost three of those last 6?
