Vasiliy Lomachenko produced a dominant win over Richard Commey which sent a statement to the lightweight division that he’s ready for a world title shot. Lomachenko displayed masterclass performance that showed why for many years, he was regarded as one of boxing’s pound-for-pound best.
The Ukrainian won nearly every round against Commey at the Madison Square Garden and dropped the hard-hitting Ghanaian in the seventh round before cruising to a unanimous-decision victory.
Judges scorecards: 117-110, 119-108 and 119-108.
After dropping Commey heavily in the seventh round, Lomachenko began to punch Commey with ease and he motioned for his corner and to the referee to save the fighter.
“I saw his situation. It was very hard for him. That’s why I said: ‘Hey, stop the fight.’ He is a true warrior. He has a big heart and we continue and we show for people 12 great rounds.” Lomachenko said in the post-fight interview
“I said before I don’t like talking about myself. We have in this weight division we have a lot of great fighters. We have a lot of top fighters. So we can organize a lot of great fights in the future.”
It looks as tho Devin Haney & George Kambosos will face off for a undisputed bout in early 2022, so who could Lomachenko fight next…. Gervonta Davis, Ryan Garcia, Teofimo Lopez rematch, JoJo Diaz, s Isaac Cruz..????
Who would you like to see Lomachenko face next
