Freddie Roach

Famous coach said that the Ukrainians have not yet resisted to the opponent with this style.

A renowned expert Freddie roach has shared his thoughts about the upcoming fight between WBO champion in the second Featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (10-1, 8 KO’s) and WBA title holder in the lightweight division, Jorge Linares (44-3, 27 KOS).

“Of course, the weight can be a very big factor in this fight. Lomachenko is raised to a new category, where his rivals will be not only more – they will be harder to beat. Once he has lost (Orlando Salido) and not yet confronted the fighter with that style. This time his opponent will have pressure, and Jorge is actually very difficult to box. He is a very smart fighter.

Battle should get interesting, because Linares really good, and his career has not gone downhill. However, now Lomachenko is one of the best boxers of the new wave, and Jorge, probably too old for him”, – quotes the American BoxingScene.

Earlier it was reported that Lomachenko and Linares signed contract for the bout, which will take place may 12 in new York.
