Lomachenko: I always said I’m open for the Gervonta fight

Vasiliy Lomachenko still wants to fight Gervonta Davis.

The former unified lightweight champion is pretty certain, though, that the feeling isn’t mutual.

Lomachenko noted after his own press conference Thursday at Madison Square Garden to promote his fight against Richard Commey on Saturday night that Floyd Mayweather, Davis’ promoter, has made it perfectly clear that he has no intention of matching Davis against him.

“I always said I’m open for the fight [with Davis], but you know boxing politics,” Lomachenko told a group of reporters.

“You know we have different promoters. Mayweather said, every time he said, ‘Hey, we have our way and forget about [me]. We’re making money.’ ”

When asked why he believes Mayweather has kept Davis away from him, Lomachenko replied, “Because they know I have real skills.”

Davis (26-0, 24 KOs), who owns the WBA’s secondary 135-pound title, stated Sunday night that he is willing to fight any top lightweight in his first appearance of 2022.

“They fight only on Showtime and they’re fighting with guys who they believe they can win this fight,” Lomachenko explained. “They pair their fighters with opponents they feel their boxers can [beat].”

The 27-year-old Davis, who also is affiliated with Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions, has fought either on Showtime or Showtime Pay-Per-View in each of his past 10 appearances.
