Lomachenko's Manager: Rigondeaux Talk is Premature

By Yuri Tarantin

Egis Klimas, the manager of two-time Olympic gold medal winner Vasyl Lomachenko (1-0, 1KO), says a potential fight with Guillermo Rigondeaux (13-0, 8KOs), also a two-time Olympic gold medal winner, is very premature to discuss.

On March 1, Lomachenko will attempt to capture a world title in only his second pro bout, when he faces dangerous WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido.

Ridgondeaux is the WBA/WBO champion at 122-pounds, while Lomachenko is fighting at 126 and says a potential fight with Cuban will have to take place at the featherweight limit.

The anticipation is already starting to build, for a showdown between two fighters who many consider to be the greatest amateur boxers of their time.

"I know that right now there is a lot of talk about the possibility of such a fight, but at this moment those talks [are premature]. At the moment we have only one goal - to beat Salido and win a world title. We are not thinking about anything else. Rigondeaux great fighter and creates problems for his opponents. He fights effectively, but he is not spectacular and the people watching do not like this," Klimas said.

I agree with Respect Power and Addix. Plus, who cares what this wannabe manager says. He just gets these Russian fighters because he speaks English and Russian. Then "sells" them to US promoters and gets paid by the US promoters…

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC;14072239]lmao Bro, I was just going to point that out! The thread title implies that Lomo isn't ready for Rigo because it's so early in his career, but Vasyl's manager makes it clear that he believes the fight is premature…

these two are never going to fight,lamachenko already said himself he's not going down in weight and now someone else is saying it too,he will do his own thing and probably win championships and be a better fighter and bigger…
