Lightweight world champion according to WBO, WBA and WBC Vasyl Lomachenko told about his next sport plans, as SecondsOut reports.

"The goal is the same: I want to unify all the titles and become the absolute world champion. I want to fight for the last title. But it is obviously that it will not happen this year. And my next fight will not be for the title of the absolute world champion," he said.

Ghanaian lightweight boxer Richard Commey is now the owner of the IBF belt. He will be soon protecting his title from Teofimo Lopez. Lomachenko will have a fight with the winner of this battle. 

As we reported earlier, Vasyl Lomachenko had outpointed Luke Campbell at the O2 Arena in London. After the final bell ring, the WBC belt was given to the Ukrainian sportsman with a score 119-108, 119-108, 118-109.

"He’s a special fighter," Campbell said after the fight. "I’m disappointed. Tonight was Lomachenko’s night but my time will come."
