The team of Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko (17-3, 11 KOs) called on international organizations to oblige American Devin Haney (30-0, 15 KOs) to hold a rematch with the native of Belgorod-Dnestrovskiy after his controversial victory in the May 20 fight. Representatives of our compatriot announced that they were preparing to appeal the result of the fight.

Egis Klimas, the manager of Lomachenko, wrote about it on his page in the social network Twitter. He sent the corresponding letters to the International Boxing Federation (IBF), World Boxing Council (WBC), International Boxing Association (WBA) and the International Boxing Organization (WBO), demanding to leave the Ukrainian in the first place in their ratings.



"As Team Lomachenko prepares to appeal the decision in light of the highly controversial outcome of the fight, I ask that you recognize Loma as #1 ranked and recognize him as a mandatory contender for the lightweight title. Loma was denied a win in the ring on Saturday, and he deserves the opportunity to be ranked and given another chance to realize his dream as soon as possible. The boxing world considers it unfair to deny Loma his rightful victory," Klimas stressed.


Recall that the lightweight fight at MGM Grand Garden Arena Haney - Lomachenko went all 12 rounds and ended with a unanimous decision of the judges 116-112, 115-113, 115-113 in favor of the American. It should be noted that the judges' notes which were published after the fight caused heated debates among experts and fans.

Russian boxer Sergey Kovalev told that fans swore at the judges after Haney won the fight. In addition, the statistics of punches of the fight confirms that the Ukrainian won at least five rounds.


Famous 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.

As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Devin Haynie unequivocally commented on his victory over Vasyl Lomachenko. In addition, it became known what is waiting for the promoter of the Ukrainian Bob Arum from the filing of a protest by the boxer's team.
