This Saturday over ESPN+ 2-time Olympic Gold Medalist Vasiliy “Hi-Tech” Lomachenco seeks adding the WBC title to his WBA and WBO titles when he faces UK’s Olympic Gold Medalist Luke Campbell in the UK.
“Luke Campbell is a tall southpaw with a good boxing IQ. I know I can’t look past a fighter with his skills. He won an Olympic Gold Medal and has had a lot of success as a pro,” said Lomachenko.
Lomachenko, 13-1 (10), of the Ukraine keeps busy and to this writer is the best P4P boxer in the world today. Campbell, 20-2 (16), is the WBC’s No. 1 contender and a worthy opponent.
“I have wanted to fight in London since I turned pro. The fans appreciate my boxing style, and every time I have come here, they make me feel appreciated. Campbell is from the UK but I feel very comfortable. This brings me one step closer to my main goal of having all the belts. I want to unify all the titles. That is my next goal in boxing. I have won titles in three weight categories, but I have never won all four belts in a division. So, for me, Campbell is a very important name as I write my boxing history,” said Lomachenko.
“I’m feeling great at the minute. It’s a fantastic opportunity for me. I’ve got the best team around me and we are all confident. It doesn’t matter how I do it (as long as) I get the win,” said Campbell.
On the undercard will be WBC Flyweight champion the UK’s Charlie Edwards, 15-1 (6) defending against Mexico’s Julio Cesar Martinez, 14-1 (11), his No. 1 contender.
