Lomachenko arrives in London for Campbell fight

WBA and WBO lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko arrived in London, where on Saturday night, on August 31, he will try to add to his collection the vacant WBC belt in the bout against Luke Campbell.

"Of course, I can not fight with Canelo or Terence Crawford, because these guys are much bigger than me. When I fought in my natural weight categories, it was easy. There have been no problems. However, when I rose up, I started to fight with opponents who are bigger than me, they have longer arms, they are higher. So now I find it difficult," said Lomachenko.

Lomachenko also noted that preparations for the fight against Campbell seemed to him easier than the previous bout against Anthony Crolla: "I liked this training camp. I'm ready 100%. We trained hard. I like it. I love boxing and I love the hard training. But this time it was not too difficult. I do not know why, but it was easier than before my last fight with Kroll. "

Lomachenko also said that he hopes to make new memories of London this weekend, in the city where he won his second Olympic gold medal in 2012.

"I look forward to the evening of the fight with great anticipation. I want to feel the emotion of the moment and the fans. London is very memorable city for me. It was my second Olympics, my second gold medal. I had time to watch the city, and I liked it. I have good memories of London. Local fans understand and love boxing. I can not explain it. There is a special audience, they respect boxers and boxing. They know the styles of boxing."
