Anthony Crolla (Former WBA Lightweight Champion) - "I think Loma looks to put on a real clinic and will talk to Lopez throughout. When he makes him miss and lands hard himself. Targets the body and stops a brave Lopez on his feet 9-10." (Vasiliy Lomachenko In Rounds 7-9 is priced 8/1 with SkyBet)
Chris Lloyd (Boxing Broadcaster) - "I think Lopez needs to hurt Lomachenko to the body in the first 3-4 rounds. It’s his best chance to slow the Ukrainians legs and tempo down enough to open up the opportunities he will need to land hurtful shots. If Teofimo doesn’t land something telling early, it’s Lomachenko’s fight. He’ll step around Teofimo all night, frustrating him and hurting him regularly. I can see Teofimo’s corner pulling him out late, or the American surviving some torrid championship rounds to lose on points." (Vasyl Lomachenko Rounds 1-6 is boosted to 6/1 with SkyBet)
Glenn McCrory (Ex IBF World Cruiserweight Champion) - "I believe Loma will have a tough night against Lopez and will have to call upon his vast experience and phenomenal talent to become undisputed champion this weekend, he will prevail, just, but López will make a name for himself and win plenty of fans with his Trojan effort!"
Tom Farrell (Professional Lightweight Boxer) - \"I think this is Loma's toughest test yet, but it will bring the best out in him. Think he wins on points in a cracker, Lopez does look the real deal but Loma is special." (Vasyl Lomachenko to win by decision or technical decision - Best priced 20/21 @ Bet365)
Danny Flexen (Seconds Out) - "We haven't seen enough from Lopez yet at the top level to confidently predict the upset, although he clearly passes the eye test. His composure, strength and power are real threats but Lomachenko may be the best thinking fighter in the world today. He is excellent at adapting and using his opponents' strengths against them. He can pull away in the second half of the fight as Lopez tires, to win a clear decision." (Vasyl Lomachenko to win by decision or technical decision - Best priced 20/21 @ Bet365)
Bradley Rea (Undefeated Middleweight Boxer) - "I think it’s impossible to bet against Loma at this point he just seems to be so much better technically than anyone in the game. I like Lopez and think he’s the best out of the young lightweights but think this is just a step too far too soon for him. Loma UD or maybe even late stoppage." (Vasyl Lomachenko Round 10-12 - Best priced 8/1 @ SkyBet)
Danny Vaughan (Trainer) - "What a fight it is. Two great fighters. In my opinion, Lopez will be dangerous in the early rounds and may win a couple early but after four rounds the fight will settle down. Loma will have Lopez overreaching and taking the sting out or his punches and countering. Lopez loads up a lot and that suits Loma who loves a left hand to the solar plexus. Lopez will have a bit of success but Lomachenko's movement and angles will nullify the power of Lopez and I can see a wide points decision or a late stoppage."
Jordan Thompson (Undefeated Cruiserweight Boxer) - "I've been getting told a lot about Lopez but for me i've got to stick with my gut instinct and that's Lomachenko points. I think once he gets into his rhythm he'll be too much of a problem to solve but I do think Lopez will come again he's a heck of a fighter but I just believe Lomachenko is way too seasoned for him."
