Vasyl Lomachenko has shared his impression about the fight with Briton Luke Campbell, which took place on August 31. The Ukrainian defeated his opponent by decision.
Lomachenko said that he fully healthy after a bout where he won a WBC championship belt. According to Ukrainians, compared to previous fights he got a little blood.
Basil also responded to criticism that he failed to win Campbell.
Every Boxing with the opponent. I think people began to forget that against me are top boxers and they fight for the title. It Campbell was an Olympic champion and became the mandatory Challenger for the title. Plus Boxing fans forget about such things as anthropometry and weight category. You need to pay attention to them and not so colorful to paint a picture for battle. I read a lot of statements before the fight, people said it was an easy walk and another belt in the Treasury of Lomachenko. But I said before the match that light the fight will not. It will not be easy, it would be difficult to box against a man who is above you, he’s got long arms, has a high Boxing IQ and sneeuwen what to do in the ring
– said Lomachenko.
His next fight Basil may hold against George Kambosos Jr. This was stated by the promoter Lomachenko, a potential rival took up the challenge.
