Lomachenko and Campbell held an open training (photos + video)
WBA and WBO lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (13-1, 10 KOs) and his opponent in the fight on August 31 at the O2 Arena in London Luke Campbell (20-2, 16 KOs) participated in a media workout. In the arena of York Hall Lomachenko and Campbell showed to the assembled fans and journalists in what conditions they came to a forthcoming bout.
Lomachenko visite to the ring was planned after Campbell, but due to the late arrival of his rival Vasyl had to first "entertain" the audience. The Ukrainian showed light workout in the ring, he worked with fightball and juggled balls and then began to sign autographs and give interviews. The reception of the Ukrainian in his opponent's country was surprisingly warm, and Vasyl said that just as well he was greeted at the same stage in 2013, when he fought in the semi-professional league WSB, and met with Sam Maxwell.
The second training session was conducted by Luke Campbell, who noticeably was late to the beginning, but said it was London traffic to blame, but not his desire to annoy the opponent. Luke showed shadow boxing and talked with reporters.
