Ukraine's lightweight champion of the world Vasyl Lomachenko shared his career goal and ambitions with the press. Apparently, the boxer's most sacred wish is to leave his name inscribed in the history of boxing - as he said in his interview with BoxNation.
'My first goal is to be in the history. I want to write my name and my second name in history. If you, after ten years, go to a bar, take a beer with your friends and you talk about boxing, you need to remember my name. I want an association with boxing, and this is my goal. Tomorrow, you can lose money. But your name and your history you never lose', he said.
As is known, Lomachenko is going to hold his next fight against Jose Pedraza from Puerto Rico. The bout is to take place in New York on December 8. The place of the forthcoming venue is New York's Madison Square Garden. It will be Lomachenko's fourth fight on this arena; in the previous three events, he defeated Roman Martinez, Guillermo Rigondeaux, and Jorge Linares.
