Top Rank President To Discuss Lomachenko’s Future This Weekend


Top Rank President Todd DuBoef will speak to Vasiliy Lomachenko this weekend about the Ukrainian’s boxing future.

The conversation will take place following the undisputed lightweight showdown between George Kambosos Jr and Devin Haney. Lomachenko originally turned down the opportunity to face the Australian deciding instead to return to his homeland to play a part in their fight against the Russian invasion.

We have only spoken to his advisor who has told us that he has been training in Ukraine quite a bit,” DuBoef told Sky Sports.

“He is going to have to figure out in his own head and with his family and his country where he wants to be come Saturday night when there is a winner determined whether he wants to be back in the sweepstakes for his profession or does he want to stay country-side with all the civilians there, protecting them and being as helpful as possible.”

Lomachenko bounced back from his loss to Teofimo Lopez to then beat Masayoshi Nakatani and Richard Commey with relative ease last year. The 34-year-old is still regarded by some as the best lightweight in the division and several reports indicated that ‘Loma’ would be next in line to face Kambosos should the champion beat Haney on Sunday.
