Ukrainian ex-world champion in three categories Vasily Lomachenko (16-2, 11 KOs) does not part with the dream of winning the title of absolute lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg), but at the same time promises that he will not underestimate his closest rival, the American Jemaine Ortiz (16-0-1, 8 KOs), whom he will meet on October 29 at the Hulu Theater arena at Madison Square Garden.
“I love my sport and am very happy to be back. My goal is to win the absolute lightweight championship, but I will not underestimate Jemaine Ortiz, ”said Vasily. “Madison Square Garden and the Hulu Theater have been special places in my career and I look forward to even more great memories on October 29th. I want to dedicate this fight to the entire Ukrainian people. I proudly carry the flag every time I step into the ring.”
Recall that at the moment the undisputed champion of the lightweight division is the American Devin Haney, who is scheduled to have a rematch against the Australian George Kambosos on October 16th.
“Why is Lomachenko in P4P?” Haney asked a question.
