Post-Fight Quotes

  • "I guess I should change my name now to NoMaschenko (meaning 'no more' in English - reportedly what Roberto Duran said to referee Octavio Meyran before quitting against Sugar Ray Leonard)" - Vasyl Lomachenko.
  • "I lost, no excuses, I injured the top of my left hand in the second round. He’s a very technical fighter. He’s explosive. I’m gonna come back because that’s what I do. The weight was not a factor in this fight. It was the injury to my hand." - Guillermo Rigondeaux.
  • Despite the history involved in the fight, Lomachenko said he didn't consider it that big of a victory, even if many others will.

"This is not his weight, so it's not a big win for me," Lomachenko said. "But he's a good fighter. He's got great skills. I adjusted to his style, low blows and all."

  • "He'll take anybody. He'll go to 135 pounds, and he'll make a joke of Jorge Linares. He'll make a joke of Mikey Garcia. They're really good fighters, but this guy is super special. You've never seen anything like this. Maybe he'll go to 140, I don't know. He's going to do this to everybody." - Bob Arum.
