A KING WEIGHING HIS OPTIONS

There is word getting out that Unified WBA/WBO Lightweight Champion Vasiliy ‘Hi-Tech’ Lomachenko (12-1-0, 9KO) has been granted a postponement by the WBA to bypass their mandatory for his next fight, which would be Manchester England’s Anthony Crolla.

With this being the case, this opens up lanes for Lomachenko to continue to look at the prospects of another unification fight with newly-crowned IBF world-titlist Richard Commey (28-2-0, 25KO) to take place next.

The complications however for this match-up is that Commey injured his right hand in his title-fight on Saturday, February 2nd, and is awaiting the results of an MRI on his hand to gauge the severity of the injury. If everything does however check out, the WBA will be in accordance with Vasiliy’s move towards another unifier, as long as that fight takes place no later than an April date, which works well given the tentative date of Lomachenko’s next fight being April 12th.
