Lomachenko on the fight :
“This is a fight for history because my goal is to unify all of the belts in the Lightweight division.
“Luke Campbell is the next challenge for me on that journey. He is an excellent fighter who I remember well from the 2012 Olympics. He has a difficult style, and I cannot afford to overlook him.
“This is a very special night for me to fight in London. I visited last year, and the response from the people was overwhelming.
“They respect my fighting style and are passionate about boxing. I can’t wait to put on a great show for everyone.”
Campbell on the fight :
“I am in this sport to be the best and to become a World Champion. This is what I train and work so hard for and fulfil my potential.
“He is ranked number one pound-for-pound fighter on the planet so for me to fight a guy like that only encourages me more to be the best that I can be and it is exactly the level that I want to be at.
“I’m well aware of how good he is and what he is capable of doing but I’m also well aware of what I can do and what I’m going to do.
“I think that I can knock out anyone that I hit right, I believe that I am one of the biggest punchers in the Lightweight division.
“This is going to be the toughest fight of my life and I’m preparing for it, physically and mentally. This is Luke Campbell’s year, it’s my time.”
Promoter Eddie Hearn on this massive night :
“A huge moment for British boxing.
“I truly believe Luke Campbell has a fantastic chance here on home soil to upset his fellow Olympic Gold Medallist.
“This is a huge event, not just in Britain, but around the World. We’re planning another huge undercard for a special night of boxing. I cannot wait for August 31!”
