Vasyl Lomachenko seals knockout win over Anthony Crolla

Vasyl Lomachenko seals knockout win over Anthony Crolla

He's likely to face IBF lightweight champion Richard Commey, but that isn't expected to end any differently than the Crolla fight on Friday did.

He defeated challenger Anthony Crolla in the fourth-round knockout at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Manchester-born Crolla was a heavy 100-1 underdog prior to the fight.

Lomachenko (13-1, 10 KOs) continued his historic march, which includes titles in three weight divisions, by flooring Crolla face first in Round 4 with a flawless right hook to the side of the head to cap off yet another one-sided performance.

Although Crolla retreated and dodged Lomachenko's attacks from the opening minute onward, Lomachenko picked apart Crolla's defense with his peerless combination of athleticism and technique, working the body and head with equal aplomb. "The healing can take up to 6-8 weeks, we will see", Lomachenko said to EsNews.

Curran, who made his ODI and Test debuts, also helped Surrey to the County Championship title previous year . He was also in top form during the tour of England, the only country he had not done well in before.


The Ukrainian pound-for-pound champion scored the first knockdown of the night in the third round in front of a 10,000-strong crowd at Staples Center. But he's devastated. He said: "I'm just so gutted for the team because of the work they did". "I feel like I'm in Ukraine here".

"It will be very historical, a big fight". Mikey Garcia is among the mentions, but according to Atlas, his loss to Errol Spence Jr. hurt his reputation in the ring.

"I come to the United Kingdom, unify titles, so we'll see".

Karpency got in the ring with a black eye, and his nose was damaged early by Ramírez, the rangy puncher who had just one previous stoppage victory since 2014. The fight was Ramirez's debut at light heavyweight.

LA celebrities in attendance included Don Cheadle, Rosie Perez, director Peter Berg and Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay.
