"Wanted to take over the world": Lomachenko made a confession before his fight with Haynie
Former three-weight world champion Vasyl Lomachenko (17-2, 11 KOs) admitted that he was obsessed with the idea of becoming the most outstanding boxer on the planet. However, the defeat to American Teofimo Lopez (18-1 13 KOs) became the point that made our compatriot change greatly.
Lomachenko talked about it in his interview for Blood Sweat & Tears movie which was released on the YouTube channel of the Top Rank promotion company. He noted that he was able to draw conclusions from his 2020 fight with Lopez fiasco and is now ready to conquer the top and become the ultimate world champion.
"I used to be a person who wanted to take over the world. My ego was very big inside. A lot of people didn't see that, but after that defeat, I looked at myself differently, and after that moment I began to change. Everything happens in time. Maybe it wasn't my time then. I lost three belts then, but I won a lot more. It was very, very good for me. I realize that now. I'm starting to live a different life now. I'm a different person," Lomachenko said.
