Super Featherweight Boxing Champion Calls Out Conor McGregor, You Won’t Believe How!

The queue to meet UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor in the ring has grown yet again.

This time, the latest athlete to call him out via social media is—you guessed it—another boxer.

Reigning WBO super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko has stepped up to challenge the Notorious.  And he did it in Ninja Turtle training wear.  That is the way to do it!  The 2008 Olympic gold medalist issued this challenge via Twitter:

The growing list of boxers having issued a challenge to McGregor includes Floyd Mayweather (recently unretired), Paulie Malignaggi (recently retired), Ricardo Mayorga (retired), Manny Pacquiao (active) and now Lomachenko.

The 130lb king of the ring is known for his exceptional hand speed, lateral foot movement and accuracy. “Hi-Tech” is considered by many to have been the greatest amateur boxer of all time, and as a professional, he is racking up quality wins, already coming in at No. 5 on the BoxRec P4P rankings list.

Here’s a clip of him working the speed bag in his “Lomanchelo” gear:
