We recall, recently the American Association of Journalists writing about boxing, the third time in a row put the Ukrainian Vasily Lomachenko to the top of the ranking of the best boxers in the world outside the weight class.
Earlier, we reported that Vasyl Lomachenko reached the status of WBA super champion. As Ring Polska reads, the organization decided to make a competition for the champion belt in a featherweight category between Lomachenko’s last competitor Jorge Linares and Daud Yordan, who are to negotiate the fight. The status of WBA super champion gives Lomachenko an opportunity to have a fight with a champion in any weight category.
