Last Saturday Lomachenko defended his WBO Super Featherweight Title and made undefeated Jamaican fighter quit after the seventh round in pretty poor fashion. If you are getting beaten, you take your beating like a man and finish with pride, however it seemed frustration got the better with him and he felt enough is enough.
Lomachenko is arguably one of the best out there at the moment, with so many big names on his resume already and hes not even had 10 fights yet. An amateur record of 396-1 and a two weight world champion already, hes certainly destined for the history books. He is signed with Bob Arum’s top rank and receives some very nice payday’s. Since bursting on the scene and moving up the weights, there is a lot of talk about him meeting Manny Pacquiao at 135lbs which Manny says he can still make quite easily. However WBO Lightweight Champion Terry Flanagan is very open to the fight, and Lomachenko says he too is very open to it .
Flanagan will have to get past Felix Verdejo first who is another undefeated challenger like Flanagan and he is also promoted by Bob Arum’s Top Rank. Frank Warren, Flanagan’s promoter has said he would love to bring the fight to Manchester but Loma has said he will definitely fight Flanagan but it has to be in America. This is the sort of match up Flanagan needs to properly cement himself amongst the top players on the world scene, because despite his world title, hes still pretty untested. With this in question, Lomachenko could potentially be getting ready to set up shop at 135lbs
