Lomachenko Reveals Who He Thought Won Golovkin vs Canelo

Pound for pound star Vasyl Lomachenko like most other boxing fans was a keen spectator in last September’s Gennady Golovkin vs Canelo Alvarez clash for the middleweight crown.

Both are recognised as the two best 160lbs fighters in boxing today and are expected to have a rematch this coming May after their first bout last year ended in a draw.

There was a bit of disagreement in some circles as to who should have won the fight and in particular, one scorecard that proved to be very controversial on the fight.

But that’s in the past now and everyone, including Lomachenko, wants to see the part two this year. Speaking to ES News, he said:

“It was a good fight. Interesting fight. I liked the way Canelo was boxing. His defense.. He was missing a bit of punches to win the fight. He lost the fight. Golovkin won. In my opinion. But what he was doing in the ring I didn’t like.”

He continued:

“And I’m not talking as a fan now. I’m talking as a person who boxes and knows boxing. And I’m discussing about it from the angle of game plan, tactics and using the skills in the fight. I didn’t like his action in the fight.”

Lomachenko himself is also looking for an opponent at the moment with speculation recently that he could face Mikey Garcia later this year.
