Ukrainian world champion in the second Featherweight champion of the WBO Vasyl Lomachenko is ready to stay in the current weight category.
Last week Lomachenko in new York ahead of schedule stopped two-time Olympic champion Guillermo Rigondeaux, after which Vasily promoter Bob Arum announced that his ward in 2018, most likely, go into a light weight and will fight with one of the local Champions.
Now the Ukrainian Manager Egis Klimas said Lomachenko will remain in the second Featherweight, if he gets the opportunity to unify the belts.
“I heard that someone from the “Top Rank” is already talking about a unification bout. We want to unify the titles. I think they’re talking to the champion of WBC Bercerita, well, or any other champion. If we can’t get anything interesting in the second Featherweight, going up to light” – quoted Klimas portal “BoxingScene”.
In addition to Vasyl Lomachenko in the second Featherweight championship belt keep Miguel Bartelt (WBC), Alberto Machado (WBA) and Kenichi Ogawa (IBF).
