The ex-champion in three weight categories: “Why the best recognized Lomachenko?”

Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. expressed the view that Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko do not deserve the right to be called the best fighter of the year.

Mexican I am convinced that a worthy candidate is Gennady Golovkin (Kazakhstan) and Terence Crawford (USA).

“With all due respect to Lomachenko, I do not consider him fighter of the year. I would choose between Terence Crawford, and Gennady Golovkin. If you know Boxing, remember the Abner Mares. Crawford is a more worthy candidate.

Why the best recognized Lomachenko? Because he defeated Roman Martinez? So who is this Martinez?” – quoted Chavez Sr. BoxingScene.

Note that in 2016, in addition to Martinez, Lomachenko also won the Jamaican Nicholas Walters. He refused to enter the ring after the eighth round.
