World champion at lightweight, WBA and WBO Vasyl Lomachenko (12-1, 9 KO’s) has set a date for the next fight.
“In a few weeks I go in USA I will prepare for battle, and the opponent is irrelevant. April 12, I will step into the ring.
There are several options. The first is a mandatory WBA defense against British contender Anthony Kroll. The second fight with the champion of IBF, which will be known on February 2, after the battle of Comm Chaniev. These guys have already signed contracts that in the next match will be to unify the titles with me.
There are always nuances and obstacles. I stand before a choice: either keep the titles and to conduct security Crolley, or to fight for the IBF belt, but then I lose the WBA title. You can, of course, to convince the WBA to wait, but it is unlikely to succeed”, – said Lomachenko for “Loma TV Official”.
We will remind, Vasily Lomachenko in 2018 had two fights in may, the Ukrainian knocked out Jorge Linares became a world champion in a third weight class, and in December by unanimous decision dealt with Jose Pedrosoi and for the first time in his career he combined the titles.
