“When we signed Lomachenko, asked to advise who should take the Top Rank and when we were talking about Verdejo, Lomachenko said, had 397 Amateur fights in his career and he was his best opponent. It was a very good recommendation.
His first performances were sensational, but it happens, he lost his spirit. And then there was the motorcycle incident. He began to surround himself with a lot of people forgot that in order to rise to the world level need dedication and a lot of work.
His last fights were horrible. He lost to Antonio ” boy ” Lozada, and obviously not even close to become the star you wanted to be. But his Manager Ricky Marquez did the right thing and invited the team coach memo Heredia. Now, Verdejo is very motivated and we pit him against former champion Brian Vasquez.
Vasquez will be the real test and show whether Verdejo become someone or not. If he proves himself, then in 2020 we can make him a big fight against Lomachenko. It’s never too late, we think that this is his last chance. If he wins, Vazquez, and prove that it is assembled, you will get the chance to become world champion at the end of 2019 or early 2020″, – quotes the Arum Boxing Scene.
