American boxer Keeshon Davis (5-0, 4 KOs), who competes in lightweight and first welterweight, has announced his desire to fight former three-division world champion Vasyl Lomachenko (16-2, 11 KOs).
"I have already said that I long to meet with Lomachenko. When I signed the first contract, I told Bob Arum that I wanted to fight Vasyl Lomachenko."
Lomachenko fought his last fight last December, defeating Richard Commey by unanimous decision. Subsequently, Vasyl could have held a match with George Kambosos, but refused it against the background of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.
The Ukrainian will return to the ring on October 29 at the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden in New York. His opponent will be Jemaine Ortiz.
In case of victory, Lomachenko is counting on a match with the absolute champion in the light weight, Devin Haney. Haney and his father are reportedly interested in fighting Vasyl.
