Lomachenko: I’ll meet the best fighter category

Ломаченко: Я встречусь с лучшим боксером категории

Lomachenko and Martinez

Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko happy with the name of the future contender.

Two-time Olympic champion from Ukraine Vasyl Lomachenko (5-1, 3 KO’s) believes a fight with the Puerto Rican rocky Martinez (29-2-3, 17 KO’s) an even better option compared to loose a fight against Nicholas Walters (26-0-1, 21 KO’s).

We will remind that on June 11 in new York (USA) Basil is making its debut in the second Featherweight (up to 59 kg), encroaching on the title of WBO world champion, which currently belongs to Martinez. Originally his opponent was supposed to be Walters, but to negotiate the parties and failed.

“I think it’s even better because I will not fight with the best fighter in the 59 kg, but with one of the world Champions.

At first my opponent was supposed to be the Walters, and we have already agreed to fight at 59 kg. But then something happened. First he said he was injured, then he wanted more money.

If we can meet (in the future)? Don’t know, better ask him. Maybe he just doesn’t want to risk it. Ultimately, I think our fight can still be stood till,” said Lomachenko.

Recall that Lomachenko will hold his next fight on June 11 in new York. Rival Ukrainian will be the world champion in the second Featherweight (up to 59 kg) WBO, 33-year-old Puerto Rican Roman Martinez (29-2-3).

Earlier SPORT bigmir)net reported that Lomachenko thinks Kovalev is the best fighter in the world.
