"I knew (Lomachenko) was coming. I can't give him that. I don't know if (the judges have) got him up on the score cards or not. I come to fight, and I come to win.

"You just gotta keep pressuring him, putting the gas on him. Stick the jab, don't give him that opportunity to set up.

"Every time he wanted to throw, I had at least something for him coming back."

Lopez, who also holds The Ring belt, is eyeing a showdown against 'regular' WBC champion Devin Haney who reacted to his rival's victory.
