"It will only get worse". Lomachenko is in the "worst situation" of his career
Absolute world lightweight champion Devin Haney (29-0, 15 KOs) is convinced that Vasyl Lomachenko (17-2, 11 KOs) chose the worst moment in his career for their fight. The American boxer is at the peak of his form and doesn't see the Ukrainian having any chance of winning.
Haney - Lomachenko fight will take place in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. OBOZREVATEL will broadcast the Lomachenko-Haney fight online. The approximate start is at 6:00 on Sunday, May 21, Kyiv time.
"I thought Loma was supposed to fight me four years ago when I called him. I told him then: 'Fight me now, because it's only going to get worse. Now is the worst time to fight me because now I'm the champion and now my confidence is off the charts. I have a lot of experience. I'm at the peak of my career," Boxing News 24/7 quoted the WBA, WBO, IBF and WBC lightweight belt holder as saying.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, Haney, speaking to the local press, called Vasyl Lomachenko a "dirty boxer". The American responded to journalists' questions about what he expected on the night of the fight with the Ukrainian.
Devin also admitted that he had no sympathy for his opponent. The champion recalled that four years ago he challenged our compatriot to a fight, but he refused.
