Arum: Lomachenko turned out to be a great guy to promote

The promoter highly appreciated the cooperation with the former world champion

Renowned promoter and founder of Top Rank Bob Arum told how his work with boxers from Eastern Europe was influenced by cooperation with the former world champion in three weight categories Vasily Lomachenko.

“You couldn’t get a more cooperative and professional fighter than Vasily Lomachenko. When the representatives of Eastern Europe knock, the door is open [для них] because of the great experience we had with Lomachenko,” Arum said.

“Again, this is not because of my great foresight, because otherwise it would be difficult. It’s because Lomachenko turned out to be such a great guy to promote.”

The Ukrainian signed a contract with Top Rank in 2013. Lomachenko became the world champion in the featherweight, second featherweight and lightweight categories.

Lomachenko has been in a training camp in the United States for several weeks now and is preparing for a fight with the undisputed world lightweight champion Devin Haney. The fight is expected to take place on May 20 in Las Vegas.
