Unified lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (14-1) made a bold statement regarding the potential heavyweight fight between his fellow countryman Oleksandr Usyk (17-0) and WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (41-0-1).
According to “Hi-Tech”, the former undisputed cruiserweight champion will have no troubles if he happens to square off with the 34-year-old Wilder.
“He will school Deontay Wilder,” said Loma to esnewsreporting about Usyk.
Even though the Ukrainian fighter lacks height, Wilder is not on Usyk’s level when it comes to pure boxing. The 32-year-old European is way faster, has better footwork and his southpaw stance will definitely be a huge problem for “The Bronze Bomber”.
Lomachenko also weighed in on the Richard Commey and Teofimo Lopez fight that is scheduled to take place on December 14. Commey is putting his IBF lightweight title on the line and the winner of the bout will get an undisputed bout against the WBC, WBO, and WBA champion.
“I’m waiting for Commey-Lopez,” said Lomachenko. “I think Commey will win. Too much power and big reach. As we saw in the last fight of Lopez, he can’t fight with a big reach.”
