Ukrainian world champion under version WBO in the second Featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko said before the fight with the Cuban boxer Rigondeaux Guilherme that is configured to win. It is reported by Fight Hub TV.
“Never regard their opponents as 50 to 50. I always go out to win, so confident in his victory 100%. My advantage to keep a high tempo throughout the fight, only then will be able to put him in checkmate,” said Lomachenko.
Boxer added, for him, was a surprise agreement Rigondeaux to fight.
“Because for two years there were only talks. He said he wants to, but doesn’t want to be, but will not, come up with different excuses. When I called and said that he signed the contract, I didn’t at first,” said Lomachenko.
“I don’t think I’m the best fighter regardless of weight class. I believe that I am in the top 10, but not yet in the first place,” said Lomachenko.
Lomachenko and Rigondeaux will meet on 9 December at new York’s Madison Square Garden.
