“I’ll fight him!” Lomachenko on Haney’s fight and Malignaggi’s words


The former world champion in three weight categories, as well as the former holder of three titles in the lightweight division (up to 61.2 kg), Ukrainian Vasily Lomachenko (16-2, 10 KOs) was a guest of Alexander Usik’s charity event in Beverly Hills.

Vasily gave
flash interview for an American reporter, in which he expressed his impressions of the last rematch of the absolute American champion Devin Haney (29-0, 15 KOs) against the former Australian champion George Kambosos (20-2, 10 KOs). Lomachenko also commented on the words about Haney ex-champion in two categories from the United States Paul Malignaggi.

— James Bond is in the building. How are you feeling? Look good.

– Not very comfortable.

“You are not used to this. Have you seen Haney’s fight?

– Yes.

What can you say about what you saw?

– I like it. It was a very good job. He was more technical, fit and fast than Kambosos. I liked the duel.

– I hope you fight. Bob Arum said that you will face Haney and the winner of your fight will fight Shakur Stevenson. But first, you will fight Jemaine Ortiz.

— Yes, first on October 29th.

“Today is a very big evening. 44 million people in Ukraine need help. You have arrived, Usyk… What does this mean for you? You are currently camping.

“This is a big event for us. Usyk helped our people, our country a lot. Big event.

  • “There I forgot my goal and dream.” Lomachenko – about the war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine and the return to the ring

– Big event. It’s good and you’re drawing attention to it. Because we live in a world where people, if they don’t see something, then get distracted by different things. What is your message to fans and people who love you?

Thanks to everyone who supports me, who follows me. See you October 29th.

Paul Malignaggi said that Devin Haney would never fight you. He is avoiding you. Have you heard?

– I do not think so. I think I will fight him.

Are you going to fight Devin?

– Yes!

“Will you say something to Devin?”

– Not. I can’t wait for October 29th. After we can talk.
