"Everything is stacked against him": Haney destroyed Lomachenko and told how the Ukrainian set him up
The light-middleweight world champion Devin Haney (29-0, 15 KO) admitted that he has no sympathy for Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko (17-2, 12 KO) on the eve of his May 20 fight. The American boxer recalled that four years ago he called our compatriot for a fight, but he refused.
Haney said this in an interview for Blood Sweat & Tears, which was released on the YouTube channel of the Top Rank promotion. He also expressed confidence in his victory over the former world champion in three weight categories, noting that Lomachenko would be considered a clear outsider for the first time in his career.
"He made me wait four years to fight him, because I was 20 years old at the time. That's why I don't like Loma. I want to beat him badly. I want to retire him. Loma has never been an outsider. But this time he's fighting a champion, and a bigger guy, a stronger guy, a faster guy, a younger guy. All the odds are stacked against him," Haney said.
The fight between the Ukrainian and American will take place on May 20 in the American Las Vegas. OBOZREVATEL will hold online broadcast of the fight Lomachenko - Haney. Tentative beginning - at 6:00 on Sunday, May 21, Kyiv time.
