Lomachenko (13-1, 10 KOs) will defend his WBA/WBO/Ring Magazine lightweight titles against fellow 2012 Olympic gold medalist Luke Campbell (20-2, 16 KOs) Saturday evening at The O2 (5 p.m. ET, ESPN+). The vacant WBC lightweight world title will also be at stake, leaving the victor one belt shy of becoming the division's undisputed champion.

Two days before a sold-out crowd of more than 18,000 packs The O2, this is what the fighters and their promoters had to say.

Bob Arum - "Now, {Lomachenko} comes over to the UK, which really is the country that is most passionate and knowledgable about the sport of boxing, to exhibit his talents before the UK audience. On behalf of Vasiliy Lomachenko and {Lomachenko's manager} Egis Klimas, we are grateful for the opportunity to be over here, to be fighting in this championship match, particularly against a world-class fighter like Luke Campbell."

Rewatching the Linares fight I think Luke Campbell will do a lot better then people think, I think everyone's expectations are either Loma will dominate or knock Campbell out but I think Campbell can box his way into being competitive.…

So intense I can almost ignore their white teeth from their smiles at each other.

I’m talkin bout Luke Skywalker looks to be at least 6’0” if Loma is 5’7”. Loma still gonna get the L imo

No tension here

Should be a good solid fight. And I do give Campbell a strong chance at causing a big upset. Can't wait.
