Lomachenko: I Want To Squash Rigo

Vasyl Lomachenko will defend his World Title on December 9th against fellow double-Olympic gold medalist and World Champion Guillermo Rigondeaux.

The man known as “Hi-Tech,” is concerned that he won’t get the amount of cred deserved for beating the smaller fight, despite Rigondeaux being a world class fighter. Lomachenko voiced his concerned to Boxing Ukraine in a translated interview.

“[Rigondeaux] is shorter and smaller than I am. No matter how I will lead this fight, I will not win anything in the eyes of the critics. In the eyes of the haters after the fight they will say, ‘Well, who cares if he won [he’s bigger]’.”

“I will try to win colorfully and brightly. I will be boxing my own style. I will be trying and working hard to simply squash him!”

In an interview, Matchroom promoter, Eddie Hearn claimed that Lomachenko is the pound-for-pound greatest fighter in Boxing, and on that subject Lomachnko stated that,

“[To get to number one] the fights I need to have are with Mikey Garcia, Jorge Linares and probably Miguel Berchelt.
