Lomachenko stops Crolla in 4th, defends lightweight belts

Lomachenko stops Crolla in 4th, defends lightweight belts

Lomachenko then showed why it was a bad idea for Crolla (34-7-3), whose toughness wasn't enough. However, it as in the fourth round where a perfectly executed right hand, landing right above Crolla's ear, sent the challenger face first to the canvas. The knockout win allowed Lomachenko to retain his WBO and WBA lightweight titles.

"Lomachenko was too good for Anthony", he said.

In the third round, with Crolla being hammered by a barrage of hooks against the rope, it appeared referee Jack Reiss stopped the bout and he wouldn't have been faulted for doing so as Crolla was not fighting back. After observing the scene, Vasyl unleashed vicious combinations in the third round that dropped Crolla against the ropes. Nothing got better in the fourth, and Lomachenko hurt Crolla before finishing him in dramatic fashion.

As the fight continued, Lomachenko was relentless with his attack and opening up with his offense while Crolla simply shelled up and was attempting to survive the onslaught. Losing to Lomachenko is never a disgrace.

The Ukrainian delivered a devastating knock-out in the fourth round at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to continue his remarkable legacy as the pound-for-pound star of the sport.

His profile has grown after headlining at Madison Square Garden and other LA venues before stepping up to Staples. "I feel like I'm in Ukraine here".

When the action began, it was Lomachenko who took the center of the ring and began to impose his will. But as I alluded to earlier, the mandatory challenge was essentially the last of Vasyl's sanctioned requirements before he unifies the lightweight crown in a winner-takes-all contest with Mikey Garcia. "That's my goal. I want historic fights", Lomachenko said post-fight.
