The Ukraine boxing maestro speaks about exploring new formats in 2018 fresh off the back of the biggest win of his professional career so far. A comprehensive shutdown of long time rival Guillermo Rigondeaux.
He made the Cuban boxing artist quit in the end, who cited a hand injury but also was out boxed, out foxed and just beat in every department in truth.
Speculation has turned to who Lomachenko will fight next up in 2018 and who, if anyone, can pose a serious challenge to him in the ring.
Undefeated sensation Mikey Garcia is that man according to many and could well be the front-runner at the moment for Lomachenko’s next opponent.
However the man himself has been also keeping a keen eye elsewhere in the boxing world and believes the new World Boxing Super Series could offer him an option one day too.
Speaking to Ukranian Sport, Lomachenko said:
“It depends on what the weights are. If it’s a weight in which I’m boxing in, then of course it will be interesting to me because it would make it possible to win all of the belts in one big swoop. This is what I want – what I’ve been striving for many years.”
Currently the tournament is open to super-middleweights and cruiserweights in its first year and has proven to be a sound format so far, pitting interesting matchups between some of the best both above divisions have to offer.
