Ukraine's prominent lightweight boxer Vasyl Lomachenko remained on the top of pound-for-pound rankings, according to ESPN jury.

The Hi-Tech, who claimed 13 victories in his professional career enjoys the first place on this list. Recently, he KO'd Anthony Crolla in Round 4. Now, he expects his next bout, where he is supposed to face Luke Campbell. Most likely, the fight will take place in London on August 31.

The current round-for pound ranking may be found on the ESPN website.

In April, British promoter Eddie Hearn shared his expectations from the fight between Lomachenko and Campbell. “Look at the situation with Luke Campbell. He will be boxing for WBC title. Miguel Garcia will probably leave the belt vacant. Bob Arum wants Lomachenko – Campbell fight for WBC title. What would you do? Would you first hold the fight for the vacant title and then bring the titles together in the fight with Lomachenko? Would you accept the fight with Lomachenko for a double fee? Or would you get four times more for the joint fight? Speaking of Campbell, who has ten fights left in his career, there should be a fight for the vacant belt. If Lomachenko beats Commey and then he will box with Campbell, it will be a great fight,” Hearn said.
