Former world champion called the shocking outcome of the Lomachenko-Haney fight
Former two-division world champion Paul Malignaggi (36-8, 7 KOs) believes Vasyl Lomachenko (17-2, 11 KOs) will not defeat outright lightweight champion Devin Haynie (29-0, 15 KOs) early. According to the 42-year-old American, he will be defeated if the meeting ends with a knockout of the Ukrainian.
The confrontation between Lomachenko and the owner of WBC, WBA Super, IBF and WBO light-heavyweight titles will take place on May, 20. Tentatively, the start of the broadcast - at 6:00 on Kiev time on Sunday, May 21.
"I will be shocked if Haney is knocked out. Lomachenko beats fighters... But even the guys he's beaten at lightweight - he hasn't stopped them. It's not like it was with the littles when he was completely destroying them. And listen, we still have an aging Lomachenko," Paul said in an interview with Paulie TV's Youtube channel, translated by Vringe.
Malignaggi is looking forward to this fight, which should answer a lot of questions on both sides.
"I told you that I'm very interested in Haney's level. But there are still things about Lomachenko that I'm also very interested in. It's a good fight. Like I said, it's a Super Bowl lightweight division. And I'm looking forward to watching it," the former boxer concluded.
