After his recent loss to Teofimo Lopez Jr. (16-0, 12 KOs), former unified lightweight world champion Vasyl Lomachenko (14-2, 10 KOs) is planning his return to the ring for spring 2021. This was reported by his manager, Egis Klimas, BoxingScene informs.

Loma is recovering well. He is already running and has started training little by little. So, he is good. He wants to get back in the ring as soon as possible. The doctor told him he can start full training, even with his shoulder, doing pushups and pull-ups, by the end of January,” Klimas stated.

Loma's manager did not have specific information on his client's future bout as the weight class is yet to be decided on.

Maybe he goes back to 130. It depends. If we can get a good fight at 135 pounds Loma would like to stay at 135. If there is no good fight at 135 then we will move to 130. At 130 and 135 there are big names and good fights, so there are very good possibilities,” he added.

As we reported earlier, the head of the Top Rank promotion company Bob Arum announced his desire to sign a contract with Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr Usyk.
