"He's coming back with a vengeance": former world champion names the main mistake in predictions for Lomachenko-Haney fight
Former world champion in two weight categories Timothy Bradley urged not to underestimate Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko (17-2, 11 KOs) in his fight against American Devin Haney (29-0, 15 KOs) for the title of absolute world lightweight champion. The former welterweight champion noted that experts and fans do not take into account the experience and skills of our compatriot.
Bradley said this on the air of Max On Boxing, which was broadcast on the YouTube channel Amazing Fishing BD, Boxin News 24 reports. The American recalled that Lomachenko looked very convincing in his last fight with Jemaine Ortiz (16-1-1, 8 KOs), so he will probably try to prove his high level.
"Lomachenko is underestimated. You have to understand that when Lomachenko has an unconvincing fight, he usually comes back with a vengeance. When he lost to Salido, he came back and dominated Harry Russell Jr. Then he lost to Lopez. He came back and dominated Nakatani. Now he had a subpar boss with Ortiz. And he's going to come back. Think about it. This is Lomachenko's style. He's going to take Haynie apart in the later rounds. Haynie is a great fighter, he has long arms, a great jab, but he lacks confidence. That's why he's now saying that Loma is preparing dirty boxing. Devin knows that the Ukrainian will try to tie him up," Bradley said.
The fight between Devin and Vasyl will take place on May 20 in Las Vegas, USA. OBOZREVATEL will provide a live stream of the Lomachenko vs. The approximate start is at 6:00 on Sunday, May 21, Kyiv time.

As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Devin Haney said he would destroy Vasyl Lomachenko in a fight on May 20. In addition, bookmakers have reduced the Ukrainian's chances of winning the fight. And American ex-champion in two weight categories Shakur Stevenson (20-0, 10 KOs) gave a forecast for the Lomachenko-Haney fight saying "he will kill him".
