As you know, the battle between twice won Olympic gold and the world champion under version WBO in the second Featherweight champion Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko (9-1-0, 7 KO’s) and Challenger for this belt Cuban Guillermo Rigondeaux (18-0-0, 11 KO’s) will be held on December 9 in new York at the famous arena “Madison Square garden”.

And the hype around their match reigns unprecedented. It is not surprising that long before this unique event, all the tickets have already been sold.

What do you think about the upcoming fight themselves its direct participants? They talked about it in an interview on BoxingScene.

– It will be a big fight for Boxing fans and for the history – said Vasily Lomachenko. – The battle will reveal our maximum potential. Believe me, it will be the best Christmas gift for fans.

What you need to do to move into the first place р4р (to become the best in the world regardless of weight categories – approx. VK)? I think I should then be mandatory fights with Mikey Garcia and Jorge Linares. I guess I still would like to fight WBC champion Miguel Bercerita. If within a year and a half I spent these fights, I would be able to call himself King р4р…

– I’m excited to be part of this historical event – said Guillermo Rigondeaux.- Can’t wait for December 9. Fighting does not win the weight class and fighters. I intend to show my best Boxing and defeat the legendary Olympian Lomachenko. Thus, I will strengthen his legacy as one of the best fighters р4р…
