ESPN+ & Top Rank have a premiere bout between a two-title Lightweight champ and his top contender
One is a champion with two world titles, and a chance to pick up a third. The other is a challenger with a fantastic record getting his second shot at world championships. You can watch as these two face off online by streaming Lomachenko vs Campbell exclusively on ESPN+.
Lomachenko vs. Campbell is broadcasting live from the O2 Arena in London on Saturday, Aug. 31. The main event card starts at 1 p.m. Eastern time. The Lomachenko vs. Campbell fight is expected to start at 5 p.m. Eastern time, and the entire event is on ESPN+.
Vasiliy “Hi-Tech” Lomachenko (13-1) is two title holder lightweight and top-five ranked pound-for-pound fighter. Lomachenko is experienced as a champion, with one of the most successful amateur careers ever. Lomachenko won titles in the European and World Championships, and gold medals at the 2008 and 2012 Olympic games. Vasiliy only had one amateur loss, and only one loss as a pro.
Lomachenko is defending his WBA Super and WBO World Lightweight titles, but he has the chance to pick up a third belt. This fight will also be for the vacant WBC World Lightweight championship. If he is victorious, Lomachenko will only be one belt away from becoming the undisputed Lightweight champion. Only IBF title holder Richard Commey would stand in his way.
Luke “Cool Hand” Campbell (20-2) is a top Lightweight contender getting a second chance at World championships. Two years ago, Campbell lost his first title shot to Jorge Linares in a 12 round split decision. Linares lost his belts to Lomachenko last year, so Campbell is aiming for the same prize from a different opponent. Campbell is born and raised in England, so he’s sure to have the home crowd on his side. He will need them, and every advantage he can find against the excellent Lomachenko.
Check out these top five taunts by Lomachenko. Even the most casual boxing fans are sure to be impressed by number one.
