The American welterweight Teofimo Lopez (20-1, 13 KOs) believes that Oleksandr Usyk's (922-0, 14 KOs) victory over Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs) in the May 18 fight was natural. The US boxer noted that he is looking forward to the rematch, as it will show what the opponents learned from the first confrontation.

Lopez Jr. said this in an interview with the Little Giant Boxing YouTube channel. According to the main offender, Vasyl Lomachenko (18-3, 12 KOs), fans and experts should take their hats off to Fury for agreeing to box the Ukrainian champion and giving a great show.

"You know, the strongest man won this fight, and it was Usyk. Fury is an outstanding champion. He has done a lot for boxing and achieved a lot in it. And the fact that he is still in boxing proves how much he loves our sport. We have to take our hats off to him and thank him for that. He made sure that the fight with Usyk took place. Let's see what happens in the rematch. I'm looking forward to it. It's very interesting to see what changes they'll make and if Fury can improve," Lopez said.
