Haney: I hope that the fight with Lomachenko will be held in Saudi Arabia

The fight was previously reported to take place on May 20 in Las Vegas.

Undisputed Lightweight Champion Devin Haney wants to fight former world champion in three weight divisions Vasily Lomachenko V Saudi Arabia.

“Now the question is only in the place. Will the fight take place in Saudi Arabia or Vegas? There will be a message soon, but I hope it will be Saudi Arabia. This is a great opportunity, especially for me, to fight in front of many Muslim spectators. This is my dream and a great opportunity.”

Is Lomachenko my toughest opponent? We’ll see when he gets in the ring. On paper it is, he is a good opponent for me, but we’ll see. I want to go out and see, he is a difficult test. Of course, I would like it to be easy, but we will prepare for it at its best. We study his best fights, because one fight does not define a boxer.”

Recall that Lomachenko has been in a training camp in the United States for several weeks and is preparing for a fight with Haney. Earlier there was information that the fight will take place on May 20 in Las Vegas.

Lomachenko defeated American Jemaine Ortiz in his last fight. For the Ukrainian, this was the first and only fight for 10 months.
