“Yes, I know that Anthony is not the favorite in this match and we all had to write off. But do not forget that Lomachenko was already lost. No one doubts that he is a fantastic fighter.
Still not the best in the world, because there is Saul Alvarez, but in the top 5 P4P ranking he’s definitely included. He was defeated early in his career, and Anthony will be able to repeat it, because he also has two arms and two legs.
Kroll is not much different from other boxers, because he wants to be one of the best. Boxing is too unpredictable, the opponent can withdraw from the bout due to injury, for example. Noah is not about that, I don’t want that to happen with Lomachenko. He is the favorite, but the underdog status did not prevent the Underwear to go into the ring with Mustache”, — quotes the words of coach Boxing Social.
