Pound for pound boxing supremo Vasyl Lomachenko had another year to remember last year as he continued to stamp his authority on the pound for pound rankings.

Most believe him to be the best fighter in the sport today.

Pound for pound out of any weight division.

Plenty of big fights are out there this year for him with ample opportunity and the first fight of the year sees him look to set to take on a former world champion from the UK:

Anthony Crolla isn’t known as just one of the nicest guys in boxing but is still also a very, very tough competitor and a man who not long ago was world champion.

While he’ll come into the fight obviously a huge underdog there is no chance Lomachenko will over look him.

Particularly as Lomachenko himself while as good as he is was shown to be more than human at times last year.

Notably in his bout with Jorge Linares last year — who just got knocked out in the very first round last night in his first fight of the year.
