We will remind, earlier the manager of Lomachenko Egis Klimas said that Vasily’s shoulder began to bother him after arriving in the United States. According to him, the boxer’s father and coach Anatoly Lomachenko wanted to postpone the fight with Lopez, but Vasily insisted that the fight take place on October 17, threatening to end his career otherwise.
