"I feel perfect while being on the ring, I feel like I can fight even better. However, I do know that boxing is a kind of sport where you should always take more than it takes from you. We will think about that. One or two more fights, and we will see what happens to my career next. Madison Square Garden is a rather good spot for the fight with Lomachenko, but now I do not think about this fight either. I just intend to win and to shock the whole world with it”, Crolla said.
Anthony Crolla has 45 fights behind him on the professional ring; 34 of those are victories (13 KO's). He is also the ex-holder of the WBA belt in the lightweight division, which he lost to Jorge Linares. Crolla also lost his revenge against the Venezuelan. However, after winning the next three fights, he became the necessary candidate for the title fight with Ukraine's renowned world champion Lomachenko.
WBA will carry out the biddings of organizing the Lomachenko-Crolla bout on February 4. The minimal sum will be $150 000; Lomachenko will get 75%, and Crolla gets 25%.
Lomachenko will try to win the IBF belt before the fight with the British boxer takes place. Richard Commey and Isa Chaniev, who both have already signed the contract to fight with the Ukrainian boxer will also fight for the vacant title.
