Vasyl Lomachenko has promised never to beat up boxing’s ring relics like Manny Pacquiao.

The WBA World Lightweight Champion faces WBO title holder Jose Pedraza on BoxNation on Saturday night.

Three-weight World Champion Lomachenko admits his size could prevent him from going through the weights, but he would be fancied against ageing boxers like Pacman, who has the WBA 'Regular' Welterweight belt.

Lomachenko said: "I'm not disrespecting Pacquiao, but I don't want to make my name bigger because I beat an old legend. I have my own road.

"There are a lot of good fighters to fight who are comparable to me. He's old. I think his career is done. I don't want to become a legend in boxing because of him."
