“You never know what will happen tomorrow.” Interview with Vasily Lomachenko


Former champion in featherweight (up to 57.2 kg) and second featherweight (up to 59 kg), as well as the ex-owner of three titles in the lightweight division (up to 61.2 kg) Ukrainian Vasily Lomachenko (16-2, 10 KOs) at the moment, he is undergoing a training camp for the fight with the American Jemaine Ortiz (16-0-1, 8 KOs), which will take place on October 29 in New York (USA).

An American reporter visited Vasily’s training hall, where
inquired the opinion of a Ukrainian on issues of interest to him.

– I am looking forward to your fight because when I look at the top ten in pound-for-pound, you are the only fighter who has a fight ahead of him. Canelo dropped out, Spence and Crawford don’t fight, Gervonta and Ryan we don’t know. All pound-for-pound fighters don’t fight except you, which is good for the sport.

Look, I’m just doing my job. As always, I want to show my best style, my best skills, to do my best.

You are fighting a difficult guy. He is a tough, undefeated fighter.

“Look, you understand, because you are in the boxing kitchen. Of course, I sparred with him. I sparred with this guy. He is very good. He is very technical, fast, feels the distance.

“He also has power. He had a lot of knockouts.

– Yes.

That’s why you are different. You are taking the chance. If you win, you can fight me tomorrow and sell the arena again. You are a big name. You are a legend. You fight October 29th in New York.

– Yes.

“And you never look at the next fight. You only look at who you’re fighting right now.

Because you never know what will happen tomorrow. That’s why I don’t like it.
