Even the pound-for-pound king is once again in action on August 31 at the O2 Arena in London, England as Vasyl”Loma” Lomachenko defends his WBA (Super), WBO and The Ring lightweight names while also going to the vacant WBC strap against England native Luke”Cool Hand” Campbell. Lomachenko, the current champ, is now a tremendous -1800 favored with all the Brit, Campbell as expected.
Lomachenko (-1800) looks to expand his 12-fight winning streak and have a step closer to unifying the four major lightweight titles. The Ukraine native possesses two of the significant championships –??he would be given a third by the WBC, and a date with IBF champ Richard Commey would arrive.
Loma is a fantastic technician in the ring, together using accuracy and creativity and footwork. He does a tremendous job dance out of the manner of the strikes of his opponent, shooting awkward angles supporting his foe??that let him have an open shot in their chin. Over his winning series that was current, nine victories have been by retirement or knockout.
Campbell (+850) dropped the WBA and The Ring lightweight straps through split decision to Jorge Linares at 2017 — Linares ended up losing those titles to Lomachenko in May 2018. Since that defeat that was narrow, Cool Hand has rattled by knockout, that has put him .
The England native is tall and extended for its division and uses his jab nicely, always pawing out it and working behind it. Campbell flames his left hand behind it and also does a great job shifting his jab. He doesn’t bring back the glove to his brow immediately, which puts him into trouble with Jorge Linares and does have a tendency to leave his punches out a tiny.
The Ukraine native is so incredible at dissecting his opponent and going on the offensive, although I expect Campbell to come across some success with his reach and his footwork to maintain Loma off early. Start looking for Lomachenko for Campbell to squeeze on his foot and catch him crossing over and he will let his heavy hands fly. He has been dropped before although the England native hasn’t been finished.
Prediction: Vasyl Lomachenko (-1800) via decision
