“A legacy destroying comment”: Vasyl Lomachenko shocks boxing world, says he is still “undefeated”

Former lightweight world champion boxer Vasyl Lomachenko was recently in the news for making some strange comments about his own professional career. Lomachenko in a recent interview said “In my mind, I didn’t lose any fight in professional boxing. That’s why I sleep very well. Undefeated? Yes. In my mind, yes.”

Lomachenko who holds a professional record of 19-2, is considered to be one the best Ukrainian lightweights. The only two losses he suffered in his decorated career were against Orlando Salido and Teofimo Lopez vis decisions. Many can say that Lomachenko is still living in denial as far as those losses are concerned as he thinks that both of those opponents made some serious fouls in between the fight that should have caused them few points.

‘Loma’ who is a two-time Olympic gold medalist is all set to face Devin Haney next on Saturday 20th May 2023. The fight will take place at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, United States. Haney has held lightweight gold since 2019 when he beat Zaur Abdullaev for the interim WBC belt (he was later promoted).

Fighting in Kambosos’ backyard in Australia in June 2022, Haney dominated to win the WBA, IBF, WBO, and The Ring belts to become the undisputed champion. A rematch clause forced Haney to fight Kambosos again, where he once again outpointed the Aussie. “The Dream” wants to be challenged, and the former champion in Lomachenko has always been on his radar.
