“I want to bring something new to boxing.  I want to be known to fans and appreciated as a ‘boxer-painter’ in regards to speed, footwork, punching power — an art form inside the ring. I have looked at videos of many great champions like Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson and Joe Frazier who each had special qualities.  I never say one particular fighter is the best ever because each has a special unique style of fighting.

“Every fight has challenges.  I looked at some video of my opponent who fought Lee Selby.  In the middle of that fight my opponent did a transition and fought with a different type of style against Selby.  These are the situations you must deal with on the night of a fight.

“Who would I like to fight some day?  Getting Salido back into the ring would be something I would like to see.”

EGIS KLIMAS, Lomachenko Manager

“We have not seen the best of Vasyl Lomachenko, maybe something like 40 percent of what we are going to see.  He pushes himself 120 percent.  He likes to spar 15 rounds daily against four different opponents.  No one trains harder.  He proved he was the best amateur boxer and he will prove that he is the best professional fighter.”
