“I was on fire when I was offered the fight with Manny Pacquiao, I was wondering. It is a legend, big name and top fighter. The only question is in what weight class to fight. Filipino boxer in the Welterweight (up to 66.7 kg), and I’m just trying to go easy (up to 61.2 kg). If I climb once in a Welterweight (up to 66.7 kg) or the first middle heavy (up to 63.5 kg), it would be unreasonable and illogical just physiologically.

Today and throughout this year I have this battle won’t take it. But if the fight will take place next year, I will say that I drove the old man not in his weight category. There are a lot of Champions in my weight class, in this direction I will build my career. I will move in the direction of modern Boxing and modern names,” said Lomachenko in an interview with Youtube channel Boxing.ua.
