    Default Vasyl Lomachenko v Anthony Crolla

    Vasyl Lomachenko wants Anthony Crolla summer fight, says Bob Arum as champion’s next fight is revealed

    The pound-for-pound king's promoter says he is eyeing a fight on British soil this summer

    Vasyl Lomachenko wants to fight Anthony Crolla in the UK this summer, according to his promoter Bob Arum.

    The three-weight world champion and pound-for-pound star is planning a British bout after witnessing Anthony Joshua defeat Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium in September.



    However, this will not be Loma’s next bout, as the Top Rank chairman revealed he is scheduled to return at The Forum in Los Angeles on April 12.

    Regarding who his opponent would be, Arum exclusively told talkSPORT.com: “We’re doing a fight February 2 [Richard Commey vs Isa Chaniev], for the vacant IBF lightweight title and both guys have signed to meet Lomachenko for April.

    “If that happens, that will be his next fight.”

    Vasyl Lomachenko already holds two of the four major lightweight world titles – the WBA and WBO – and could then pick up his third in April.

    After that, the intention is for the 2012 Olympic gold medallist to re-introduce himself to the British crowd.

    “For the summer, I’d like to bring him over here and arrange this Crolla [fight],” Arum continued, speaking in London on Tuesday.

    “I know Loma would love to fight in the UK.”



    Away from Lomachenko, Bob Arum discussed a number of fights and fighters he is on the verge of securing for Top Rank.

    A WBO super-bantamweight title rematch between new champion Emanuel Navarrete and young star Isaac Dogboe is in the pipeline for May

    And the promoter confirmed they are working on signing IBF light-heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev and Spanish welterweight star Kerman Lejarraga.

    As well as this, Arum stated Jorge Linares is a target: “I’m meeting with his promoter, Honda, from Japan and he wants to fight either Jose Ramirez at 140lbs or a rematch with Vasyl Lomachenko.

    “We’re gonna work something out with Honda who’s a good friend of ours.”

    Waste of time, I hope some of these guys at 130 move up soon.

    Have to give it to TR’s matchmaking. Crawford and Loma are P4P best without even challenging themselves

    Be great to see Loma fight over here again, although preferably someone competitive would be nice. Maybe if he wears a blindfold and they tie breeze blocks to his feet Crolla will win a second of a round. This is the most uninspiring matchup for an elite currently being mooted.

    Always great to se Loma fight. Don't know how realistic it is but I sure hope to watch him against Manny.

    Sounds like a big step sideways and Arum getting a little ahead. Like to see Loma ringside for the Commey fight in Feb if that's the one next for him in April.

    Welcome to the site

    A Pac fight would be nice, but I don't see Manny dropping in weight, would Loma go to 140 or 147 for the fight?

    I don't think I like that. Manny is 40 years old and it's a lose - lose for Loma. If he wins = manny was old, if he loses = he's overrated.
    Plus I don't like the idea of a legend like Manny who is now Arum-free to lose to an Arum fighter and pass the torch on so to speak.

    Loma and Mikey is the fight to be made and hopefully we will see it at the back end of 2019, once Mikey has taken his hiding from Spence.

    That is a plus for Brits, no offense to Crolla but I think Campbell would be more competitive.
