Fury speaks about the fight between Lomachenko and Haney

British heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) did not evaluate the fight between Vasyl Lomachenko (17-3, 11 KOs) and Dequan Haney (30-0, 15 KOs). The Gypsy King, as the Manchester-born fighter is known, admitted that he tries to ignore the opinions of experts and journalists.

Fury said this in an interview with the Sporting News Australia YouTube channel. According to the British holder of the World Boxing Council (WBC), he will be able to comment on the controversial defeat of the Ukrainian former world champion in three weight categories when he watches the fight.

"I didn't watch the fight, but I read a lot of reviews. A lot of people think it was a robbery, but I didn't watch the fight and I'm not interested in what people say. Until I watch the fight myself, I won't repeat the opinions of other people. What do you think? (Asks the journalist - ed.) A draw? Well, it's a draw, then," Fury said.

It will be recalled that the lightweight fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena between Haney and Lomachenko lasted all 12 rounds and ended with a unanimous decision of 116-112, 115-113, 115-113 in favour of the American. It is worth noting that the judges' notes, which were published after the fight, caused fierce debate among experts and fans.


Lomachenko's team announced that they were lodging a protest against the outcome of the fight. In addition, the fight's punch statistics confirm that the Ukrainian won at least five rounds.

After the defeat, Vasyl Lomachenko could not contain his emotions and burst into tears while waiting for the press conference. During a flash interview in the ring, Vasyl did not mention Ukraine, refusing to thank his homeland.


As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, renowned boxing coach Teddy Atlas demanded that the Nevada Athletic Commission begin proceedings against one of the judges of the Lomachenko-Haney fight. It also became known how much the Ukrainian boxer earned for the fight.
