Former champion in three categories Vasily Lomachenko (17-2, 11 KOs) and former champion in two weights American Shakur Stevenson (19-0, 9 KOs) met in Top Rank Gym in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The overexposed video was posted by the Thaboxingvoice channel.
The boxers hugged, after which Shakur suddenly asked Vasily when he was performing.
“You know when,” he replied.
“No, I do not know. What day?” Stevenson, 25, asked.
Stevenson: After Lomachenko I want to fight Tank
“I fight Haney on May 12th,” Lomachenko, 35, said.
Shakur was surprised because he thought it was May 20. After that, it turned out that Vasily was mistaken, and yet on May 20. He pointed out that “kamon, this is not my mother tongue.”
There is still no contract for the fight between Lomachenko and the undisputed lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg) American Devin Haney (29-0, 15 KOs). The date is also, in general, preliminary.
