Lomachenko became WBA and The Ring champion in May 2018 when he won by TKO against Jorge Linares. He then defended his WBA title and also won the WBO lightweight belt over Jose Pedraza. He also retained all his belts with a knockout win over Anthony Crolla. On his last Fight, he won the vacant WBC with a points decision over Luke Campbell. Now, he is going in search of the IBF title to add to his belts.
Lopez will attempt the first title defence after defeating Richard Commey in two rounds. The Honduran-American has a record of 15 wins in 15 fights, 12 of those won by knockout. Lopez is a very powerful puncher, and it will be an exciting fight this one with Lomachenko.

We believe the Honduran-American commands respect as he is a champion, but Lomachenko is of another level. The Ukrainian will likely study his opponent in the opening rounds, but once he is confident has what it takes to take full control and run the show. Lomachenko to win by KO, TKO looks the value here.
