Two-time Olympic gold medal winner Vasyl Lomachenko (1-0, 1KOs) has no issues with with facing stablemates Evgeny Gradovich (18-0, 9KOs), holder of the IBF's featherweight title, and two-time Olympic gold medal winner Guillermo Rigondeaux (13-0, 8KOs), who holds the WBO/WBA super bantamweight titles.

Lomachenko and Gradovich are both managed by Egis Klimas, but that does not appear to be a roadblock in making the fight.

"[Gradovich] is very assertive and a strong fighter. He is correctly called - "Russian Mexican." He can be waist-deep in blood, but never surrenders. I like those kind of boxers and people like them very much. In terms of fighting him, again, it is not a problem for me. If the promoter wants us to fight, then of course we will fight," Lomachenko told Sport Ukraine.

Regarding Rigondeaux, Lomachenko says the fight would have to take place at the featherweight limit of 126-pounds.

"He is considered one of the strongest boxers, regardless of weight class. I'm not going to go down to his weight class or box at a catch-weight because there are official weight classes. And if this fight takes place, it probably will only take place at 126-pounds and that is my weight," Lomachenko said.

Lomachenko returns on March 1, going for gold as he challenges WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido of Mexico.

Lomachenko/Gradovich would be a very interesting and lucrative fight staged at the right arena. Right now, I'm on the Lomachenko hype train, the man can flat-out box.

I want to see this fight so badly. Two geniuses in the ring.

Rigo would beat Lomo at this point, and probably always will.

[QUOTE=DannYankee09]Lol at people saying Rigondeaux is chinny when he got hit with the same punches that made fighters do the bambi legs and go night night before. This is what Rigondeaux did when he got counteredt flush by Donaire. http://cdn2.sbnation.com/imported_assets/1552991/1_medium.gi...
