Whether you rank Lomachenko at number one, two, or three in your pound-for-pound list, he has certainly proved he is one of the best fighters in the world today.
Most cases point to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (52-1-2, 35 KOs), Vasiliy Lomachenko (14-1-0, 10 KOs), and Terence Crawford (35-0-0, 26 KOs) as the top 3 (in no particular order). Let’s take a look at each boxer to see how they stack up…
This past Saturday we saw Vasiliy Lomachenko (14-1, 10KOs) win the vacant 135lb WBC title and capture his 3rd belt in the lightweight weight class as he had a competitive but very clear win over Luke Campbell (22-3, 16KOs).
If Lomachenko were to win this fight he would hold 3 of the 4 major titles at 135lbs and he would be one step closer to his dream of being an undisputed champion.
This is very unusual and a bit controversial since Lomachenko is not ranked within the WBC, let alone ranked either #1 or #2. However, it’s still great news for boxing fans.
Vasiliy Lomachenko is back and he has no shortage of opponents. Whether its a fellow champion, a solid contender, a rising star, or another elite fighter, Lomachenko has options. It will be interesting to see which fights get made and whether he can continue to prove he is among the pound for pound greats.
