Mayweather In No Rush To Do Davis-Loma
In the aftermath of Gervonta Davis’ one round demolition of Hugo Ruiz at Dignity Health Sports Park, his promoter Floyd Mayweather aimed his ire towards WBA, WBO lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko.
“We’re not going to call any particular fighter out, and it’s not like we’re ducking and dodging anyone. Lomachenko has to fight as many fights as possible, extremely quick, because he’s very, very old. Tank is like 10 years or 11 years younger than Lomachenko. Lomachenko will be 40 before you know it,” Mayweather said of the lightweight champion who is near turning 31.
“There is no rush. Tank just has to keep doing what he’s doing. [Davis] is making the same money that Lomachenko is making – and [Davis] is doing it easier. Lomachenko is a hell of a fighter and I like Lomachenko. But after Tank went and beat the champion up [Jose Pedraza], Lomachenko went and beat Tank’s leftovers and he went the distance.
“Tank didn’t have to go to the Olympics. Tank didn’t have to have 300 amateur fights. Tank went out there and got the job done.”
