Lomachenko joins Wilder as the internet’s punching bag injury claim. Soon after Vasiliy Lomachenko’s defeat at the hands of Teofimo Lopez, an announcement came out that claimed that the reason Lomachenko lost was an injury sustained during training prior to the fight. Lopez has faced criticism amoungst his fans online for not failing with grace and trying to make excuses. This episode is similar to that of Deontay Wilder, who faced scrutiny when his camp released a statement claiming that he didn’t perform well in his fight against Tyson Fury because of Wilder’s “heavy costume” he wore during his ring walk. Do you think that Lomachenko and Wilder were simply making excuses for poor performances, or are they valid concerns? Let us know in the comments!
