Lomachenko starts training for Rigondeaux
Vasily Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KOs) has already started preparing for the fight against Guillermo Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs). The boxers will compete on December 9 at Madison Square Garden in New York. For the fight with Lomachenko Rigondeaux will rise in two categories - the fight will be held in the super featherweight division. Lomachenko, who owns the WBO belt in this division, is now training in his native city Belgorod-Dnistrovsky in Ukraine.
During one of the classes Vasily shared his opinion about his future opponent. The Ukrainian has predicted that Rigondeaux will constantly run from him in the ring:
"Rigondo is small and tells the guys who are twice as big as him, that he respects those who are not afraid of him. On December 9, he will understand that in order to climb higher, only one character is not enough. That's what I think.
He speaks to much but he will wear the cyclists leader's yellow jersey on the day of the fight, will fasten it, sit on the "byke" and begin his Paris-Dakar rally".
Has a jackal the most powerful jaw? On December 9 we will verify this. I'm not going to bite him but I'm going to beat him in the jaw."
