Lomachenko's Hilarious Reaction To Eddie Hearn Saying Campbell Will Beat Him Is Priceless
Vasyl Lomachenko's hilarious reaction to Eddie Hearn saying Luke Campbell will beat him is priceless.
The Ukrainian phenom was in London over the weekend for Dillian Whyte vs. Oscar Rivas to promote his upcoming world title fight against Campbell.
And before taking his seat for Saturday's event, he was involved in a brilliant exchange with the Matchroom Boxing promoter.
Hearn said that Campbell will beat Lomachenko to his face to make it 1-1 among his stable of fighters.
"You talking about my fight? Eddie, Eddie," he replied before pulling a cheeky smirk.
Here's the full interaction courtesy of iFL TV.
Hearn doubled down on his prediction when both fighters faced off in the ring and, again, Lomachenko's reaction was superb.

On Monday, Lomachenko and Campbell went head-to-head at the pre-fight press conference.
"He is tall, he has a big reach, he is a smart boxer and has a high boxing IQ. He also has lots of amateur experience so maybe for me it will be a big challenge," Lomachenko said about his opponent.
"I never think about being unbeatable, I just do my job and train hard. When I come in the ring I believe I win."
Campbell, on the other hand, is up for the challenge and believes he'll dethrone the pound-for-pound star.
"I've never shied away from a challenge, this is a big one but it is the type of challenge I train and prepare for everyday," he said.
"I believe this is the two best Lightweights in the division that are dancing off and this brings everything to the table.
"Power, speed, ability, this fight has everything. Come August 31 I believe that you're going to see one hell of a fight.
"I'm a competitor and I want to compete at the highest level. I believe in myself and I will rise to occasion and be ready on August 31. Vasiliy doesn't need to talk much because the action will do the talking. You're going to see a great fight."
Lomachenko, who boasts not one but TWO Olympic gold medals, last fought in April against Anthony Crolla where he stopped him in the fourth round.
While Campbell is riding a three-fight win streak following his defeat to Jorge Linares.
