World champion WBA, WBO and WBC lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko in last time was surrounded by young men. Now in his division stars Shine Cervante Davis, Teofilo Lopez, Devin Heine and Ryan Garcia. The eldest of the galaxy of young talents is 25-year-old Davis.
Former world champion Paul Malignaggi is confident that young men should not postpone the showdown between them. However, he expressed the opinion that the 32-year-old Lomachenko can still compete with them in terms of thirst for victory.
“The confidence of young men playing an important role. That’s why everyone wants to make these great fights, while the boys are still young. When they get older, it is still good, but be more prudent. Due to overconfidence they throw the caution. Young men are ready to jump in fire to become Champions and leaders in their division.
Although Lomachenko and older than these guys, I think he still has that feeling. At the same time I see how the youth is spoiling for a fight and wants to take any calls. I want to see the fights these boxers now, while they’re still young,” said Paul Malignaggi.
Recall that Malignaggi also shared his thoughts on the potential fight Geronta Davis – Ryan Garcia.
