"When did you see it? Where?" Lomachenko got into an altercation with Haney before his championship fight. Video
Ukraine's Vasyl Lomachenko (17-2, 11 KOs) and America's Devin Haney (29-0, 15 KOs) had a heated argument when they met in Las Vegas on the eve of their May 20 world title fight. The reigning owner of all featherweight belts accused our compatriot of constantly showing dirty boxing and met with incomprehensible reaction.
The corresponding video was published on the page of the promotion company Top Rank on the video hosting site YouTube. Lomachenko did not agree with the statements about his address and tried to find out from his opponent where and when he saw dirty tricks in his performance.
"When have you ever seen me fight dirty? In what fight? Where? Stop it, man," the Ukrainian questioned Haynie.
In response, the American champion recalled Vasyl's fight against Richard Commie in December 2021 and called this style of boxing the only option for Lomachenko. "This is your only chance. That's all you have to offer me. We all know that. That's what you cook up to avoid my jab. You have dirty fights. I saw it against Commie. You were throwing punches after the ref stops," Devin said.
The evening of boxing will take place in the American Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. OBOZREVATEL will hold online broadcast of the fight Lomachenko - Haney. Tentative beginning - 6:00 Sunday, May 21, Kyiv time.
On the eve of the fight, the American promised to finish his opponent and end his career. In turn, Lomachenko talked about how he reacted to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Also, our boxer admitted what mistake he made before his loss to Teofimo Lopez.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Russian former world heavyweight champion Grigory Drozd gave a disappointing prediction for Vasyl Lomachenko in the fight against Devin Haney. Also, the network remembered the only fight in which the Ukrainian went down for a knockdown. And our boxer himself named his advantage over the American.
