Ukrainian boxer and ex-champion in three weight categories, Vasyl Lomachenko, has no intention of ending his professional career despite his recent loss to Devin Haney, the reigning lightweight world champion. This announcement was made by his promoter, Bob Arum.
"Will we see Lomachenko in another big fight? Yes, definitely," said Arum. He added that from the very beginning of his cooperation with Lomachenko, he became a supporter and friend, emphasizing that the Ukrainian boxer's career is far from over.
Although Lomachenko was defeated by Haney in the fight for the absolute world championship title, the boxing world community was highly critical of the judges' decisions. However, WBC President Mauricio Suleiman supported the judges' assessment, stressing the closely contested nature of the fight.
Lomachenko's manager, Aegis Klimas, has appealed to the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO to recognize Lomachenko as the mandatory challenger for the title currently held by Haney.
