Ukrainian superstar Vasiliy Lomachenko and British Luke Campbell will fight for the lightweight title of the World Boxing Council, on August 31.
The contest, which will be broadcast through ESPN +, will be curiously at the O2 Arena, a the same place where both warriors managed to win gold medals during the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Lomachenko will arrive with a 13-1 and 10 knockout record, while Campbell is 20-2 and 16 knockouts.
“This is a fight for history because my goal is to unify all the belts in the lightweight division,” Lomachenko said.
“Luke Campbell is the next challenge for me on this trip. He is an excellent fighter that I remember well from the 2012 Olympics. He has a difficult style, and I can’t afford to be complacent.”
Campbell said: “The best against the best. This is going to be an incredible fight. I am in this sport to be the best and to become a world champion. For this I train and work so hard. Lomachenko is one of the best on the planet, so fighting with such a guy just encourages me to be the very best I can be and is exactly the level I need to be at. ”
