Ukrainian Gave Advice to Haney

Former three-division world champion Vasyl Lomachenko (17-3, 11 KOs) expressed his confidence that American Devin Haney (30-0, 15 KOs) must give him a rematch in order to prove his superiority after the controversial victory in his May 20 fight. The native of Belgorod-Dnistrovskiy noted that it is the current holder of all lightweight division titles who needs a rematch.

Lomachenko said this in an interview with YouTube channel EsNews. According to him, he received a lot of messages from boxing fans with words of support. Fans questioned the result of the fight, in which Haynie was given the victory by unanimous decision of judges.



"A lot of people come up to me and say I won the fight. Before the fight, he talked a lot about legacy. But if you talk about legacy, you need a rematch. It's all in his hands. He needs that rematch, not me. Because I sleep very well. You have to be a strong guy to arrange a rematch. But I don't think that's ever going to happen. I was pleasantly surprised to get so much support from fans all over the world. My future? We go on," Lomachenko said.


Recall that the judges' notes, which were published after the Lomachenko-Haney fight, caused a heated controversy among experts and fans. Russian boxer Sergey Kovalev said that fans swore at the judges as they left the gym after Haney won.


In addition, the statistics of the fight confirms that the Ukrainian won at least five rounds. In Russia, one of the journalists called the disgrace of boxing from Lomachenko in the fight. It also became known that Vasyl was suspended from boxing after the fight. Devin Haney himself pounced with insults on the Ukrainian boxer.


Our compatriot's team demanded that international organizations announce a mandatory rematch. For his part, Lomachenko expressed his confidence that it would be difficult for him to fight again for the title of absolute world champion.


As reported by OBOZREVATEL, American coach Teofimo Lopez Sr. called the result of Lomachenko - Haynie fight a disgrace to boxing. He also compared the judges of the fight to the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. And Lomachenko himself was challenged by the undefeated American.
