There are exceptional fighters and there are those that are just destined to be remembered as ring greats.

Here at Vital Boxing, we?re of the opinion that Vasyl Lomachenko is going to fall into that latter category.

The Ukrainian fighter has only had 11 professional fights but has already won world-titles at two different weights.

On 12 May, Lomachenko will, in professional fight number 12, hope to win a world title at a third weight, lightweight.

At the legendary venue that is Madison Square Garden, in New York, Lomachenko will go head-to-head with the WBA lightweight world champion, Jorge Linares.

Linares is a familiar name to British fight fans having ventured to the UK to take on, and beat, Kevin Mitchell and Anthony Crolla, whilst also defeating Luke Campbell, in the US.

Talking about the forthcoming fight, Lomachenko has remarked,

‘We are very excited about the fight.

‘Not only will I demonstrate why I’m the best lightweight in the world, but also that I’m one of the best pound-for-pound fighters. I have the speed, skill and power to win.’

Linares will prove to be a tough test though having won four world titles at three different weights.

But, it?s definitely a night to look forward to, who is your money on?
