On April 12, the Ukrainian will be defending his belts from the British contender.
After the previous fight against Jose Pedraza, Lomachenko got 2 million dollars. The fight with Jorge Linares made him richer for another million. The money reward is split among all members of the team that prepared for the fight.
Earlier, Lomachenko's manager Egas Klimas told the press about the Ukrainian's current shape. 'Lomachenko is doing great. He is in his best shape. He is strong both physically and mentally. I watched his preparations yesterday. He is at his peak. Vasya is working hard as usual. He is preparing for any fight as always. He is so strong mentally that the name of his opponent was never a problem for him. Maybe, he is mentally stronger than physically. He is ready as if he is about to fight with Floyd Mayweather', he said.
