Words before battle
Vasyl Lomachenko: “you Need to understand what you want from this sport. I came to the US and focus on his training camp. I need to rest, eat and exercise — nothing more. And we need to completely abandon their daily lives. Before the fight you need to be strong, fast, smart, physically and mentally. Now all the hard work is already done. I want to write his name in history. I want to unify the titles to become the undisputed world champion and to go down in history of Boxing. And that’s all. On Saturday we will make history.“
Jose Pedraza: “I’m going to show that I was a boxer like that. I’m not just good, not just a technician. I am a great fighter with excellent stamina, which gives me a chance not just to give Lomachenko a good fight, but even to beat him. I’m going to make their work and increase their market value. If I will succeed in it, you expect to win. How will the fight? The war of the two techies. We both are very technical, and both like to dominate the game. The battle will be very tough. I’m willing to spend in the ring for 12 rounds. We trained in Las Vegas, above sea level to beat Lomachenko in stamina to cope with his speed, movements and all those that he served in combat“.
Bob Arum, promoter of Top Rank: “It will be a difficult fight for him because Pedraza is a style that can deliver VAS a lot of problems. But I don’t think lightweight is the rival who could really challenge Lomachenko. It’s really special“.
