“I want to prove that my father is the best coach in the world, a genius of Boxing. That’s why I do it. The father watched the fights Pedraza, told what and how I need to do in the ring.

And the fight against Pedraza — it’s just a step on the way to the title of absolute champion of the division. After this fight I’ll be a little closer to my goal. He promises to give me a good fight? I don’t have some sort of expectations from Pedraza. Don’t know what he’s going to give. I will step into the ring to do his job. To do what you do best,” said Lomachenko.
