Earlier this year at Staples Center in Los Angeles, Anthony Crolla was dominated and wiped out by way of a brutal fourth round knockout at the hands of Vasiliy Lomachenko.
Shane McGuigan, trainer of Olympic gold medal winner Luke Campbell, believes that his fighter has all of the necessary tools to defeat pound-for-pound fighter Vasyl Lomachenko.
Luke Campbell has been ordered to face Vasyl Lomachenko for the vacant WBC lightweight title.
According to Eddie Hearn, WBC #1 lightweight Luke Campbell and #3 Devin Haney have reached a deal to fight on July 27th for Mikey Garcia’s former title, pending WBC approval.
The expected news is now official, as the WBC have announced that Mikey Garcia has been designated lightweight champion emeritus, meaning he is no longer the recognized WBC lightweight titleholder, and that the 135-pound belt is vacant.
Vasyl Lomachenko is actively looking for the chance to fight in the UK, according to his promoter Bob Arum.
