Boxing Ring: Despite George Kambosos Jnr’s surprising victory over Teofimo Lopez, Vasiliy Lomachenko still expects to dominate the lightweight class.
Last October, the Ukrainian star lost his WBA, IBF, and WBO belts to Lopez, but his prospects of a rematch appear to be over after Lopez was beaten on points by Kambosos Jnr in New York last weekend.
On December 11, Lomachenko will fight Richard Commey again before moving on against Kambosos Jnr in his quest to become the undisputed champion.
“Of course, for belts,” the three-weight champion told Sky Sports when asked about his remaining goals. It’s now my boxing objective. My motivation is to be the undisputed global champion.
He responded when asked about Kambosos Jr. “We’ll see,” says the narrator. Of course, I want this fight, but first and foremost, I have a fight on December 11 that I must concentrate on.
“After this fight, I’ll be able to discuss my future.”
Lopez was knocked out in the first round by Kambosos Jr., and even a knockdown of the Australian in the tenth round couldn’t save his unbeaten record and world title reign.
“I gave Kambosos a chance before the fight, but I anticipated Lopez would win this fight,” Lomachenko stated.
“However, it is what it is.” “This is the life of a boxer.”
Before losing to Lopez, Lomachenko had won the WBA and WBO titles, as well as the vacant WBC title, by defeating Jorge Linares and Jose Pedraza, respectively.
In June, he retaliated against Masayoshi Nakatani with a merciless stoppage, although he was quick to reject any discussion about whether he was still the rightful top lightweight.
“I’m not going to talk about myself,” Lomachenko stated. “It’s a question for boxing fans, and it’s a question for boxing experts.”
“However, when it comes to my skill, I always want to show off my best style, my finest skill.”
