Ukrainian boxer Vasyl Lomachenko shared his plans after the fight with Jose Pedraza, slated for early December. The WBA lightweight champion of the world said he would like to face Mikey Garcia next, as The Independent quoted him.
'I think it will be Mikey Garcia because he has two titles and the winner takes it all', he told the outlet. 'Now, I stop at 135lbs and after a couple of years I go up to 140. It depends on how I feel and my size. Nobody knows what will happen over the years, maybe I could even go down'.
Beating Garcia who has not yet succumbed will bring Lomachenko all champion titles in the lightweight division.
