The pound-for-pound king is once again in action on August 31 at the O2 Arena in London, England as Vasyl”Loma” Lomachenko defends his WBA (Super), WBO and The Ring lightweight titles??while also going to the vacant WBC strap against England native Luke”Cool Hand” Campbell. As expected, Lomachenko, the current champ, is now a enormous favorite Campbell, with all the Brit, coming back at +850.
Lomachenko (-1800) looks to extend his 12-fight winning streak and take a step closer to unifying the four important lightweight names. The Ukraine native possesses two of the major championships –??he would be given a third by the WBC, and also a date using IBF champ Richard Commey would arrive.
Loma is a fantastic technician in the ring, together with creativity excellent footwork and accuracy. He does a job dance from the manner of his opponent’s strikes, carrying awkward angles toward??his foe??that let him possess an open shot in their chin. Over his 12-fight winning streak that was current, two successes have been by retirement or knockout.
Campbell (+850) lost the WBA and The Ring lightweight straps through split decision to Jorge Linares in 2017 — Linares ended up losing those names to Lomachenko in May 2018. Since that defeat, Cool Hand has rattled by knockout, that is set him in line to recover the belts he lost two years back.
The England native uses his own jab well, always pawing it out there and working behind it, and is long and tall using a 71-inch reach, for the lightweight division. Campbell fires his powerful left hand behind it and does a fantastic job. He will have a tendency to leave??his punches out a small and does not bring the glove back to his chin immediately, which got him into trouble.
The Ukraine native is incredible at going on the offensive and dissecting his competitor, although I anticipate Campbell to locate some success by using his reach and his great footwork to keep Loma away early. Start looking to get Campbell to rally on his foot and grab him crossing and he will let his hands fly that is thick. The England native hasn’t been finished but he’s been dropped previously.
Prediction: Vasyl Lomachenko (-1800) via conclusion
