Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg believes that Vasyl Lomachenko will emerge out victorious against Teofimo Lopez when the duo lock horns tonight. Loma and Lopez will fight each other for their respective world lightweight titles, and the winner of the fight will take it all.
That said, both world champions have got their equal chances of winning. While Lomachenko has more experience than Lopez in the professional run, the latter has got some quick hands and an undefeated record in his favor.
However, Wahlberg hails Lomachenko as the pound-for-pound number one and offers all his supports to the Ukrainian champion. No wonder it has already put a lot of weight on Loma’s shoulders as we get closer to the fight.

The official social media account of Top Rank Boxing recently posted a video where Mark Wahlberg offers his thoughts on the much-awaited lightweight thriller. The Hollywood superstar has always been a fan of combat sports, and this time it’s even more for him since he is personally close to Lomachenko.
In the video, Wahlberg said, “Vasyl Lomachenko, number one pound-for-pound in the world, about to be undisputed, unified, all that s***, four-time champion, let’s get it, baby.”
It adds a lot of star power to Loma’s corner. However, his opponent Teofimo Lopez has also got big names on his side. WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is backing him up and ‘The Gypsy King’ believes that Lomachenko won’t defeat ‘El Brooklyn’ Lopez.
‘NO LOMACHENKO’S OR ANYONE WILL BEAT HIM – HE HAS GOT MY SIZE BODY!’ 💪🏼

While we get closer to the lightweight thriller, Lomachenko and Lopez continue to thrill the fans. Not only that, but their star supporters are also adding some thrill to the mix by revealing their respective sides. Meanwhile, the final action will take place when the bell rings with Loma and Lopez standing opposite each other inside the ring.
The winner of the fight will take away all the lightweight titles (WBA, WBO, and IBF). Thus, none of the champions can afford to lose the fight instead of adding more to their name.
