WBA and WBO World Champion Vasily Lomachenko (12-1, 10 KOs) in an interview for VideoBoxing he toldthat rival in the last battle Jorge Pedraza (25-2, 12 KOs) did not surprise him with anything and only had the goal of "surviving" the ring.
"To fight with Pedrazo, I'd set eight out of ten. What I wanted in the fight, I did, the strategy and task I set up, I tried to fulfill them. There were moments that failed, at some moments I had to adjust.
Pedras did not surprise me, only good for the whole distance. He had enough gas for 12 bullets to work. You know, there are such opponents and battles when an opponent drowns the battle and goes to battle not to win but to survive. I think that was just such a task for Pedraza.
When the fight was over, he was very happy, he was happy, and spoke a lot of warm words about me. I, if I had such a fight, would be very upset.
Everyone in this battle had their task. I have: to go further and feel his body after injury, he must "survive" at all costs.
Next match Ukraine should hold in April, after fighting for IBF title.
