Ukrainian boxer Vasyl Lomachenko, the WBO and WBA lightweight champion of the world is to hold his next fight in Los Angeles in April. The Ukrainian's promoter Bob Arum disclosed some information about the upcoming bout.
According to Arun, 'Lomachenko will return to Los Angeles in spring, in April'. 'The ESPN gets angry when I say this ahead of time. They love announcing the venue, but it will be the top arena of Los Angeles', Milky Way Sports quoted him as saying.
The Ukrainian's next opponent will be either Russian Isa Chaniyev or British Richard Commey. The two will fight for the IBF title in the lightweight category. Thus, Lomachenko will get the chance to get all the belts in this division - WBC, WBA, WBO and the IBF. Previously, the Ukrainian took the WBO and WBA belts from Jorge Linares and Jose Pedraza.
Latest wins put Lomachenko on the top of Sports Illustrated magazine's P4P ranking. Meanwhile, his coach and father Anatoliy Lomachenko has been considered the best coach in the world for two years straight.
