Who is next for Lomachenko?

After betting Jason Sosa on April 8th in a 9 round stoppage win the question is: Who is next for him?

He is being claimed as the best world pound-for-pound fighter. He has a fast boxing style and a professional career of 8-1-6 KO’s. Five names appear on the list to fight Vasyl Lomachenko.

  1. Orlando Salido (43-13-4, 30 KOs, 1 NC): They already had a fight, the only loss of Vasyl and Bob Arum said he wants to do the rematch, of course Vasyl totally agrees.
  2. Jezreel Corrales (21-1, 8 KOs, 1 NC): If Lomachenko’s priority is to unify belts, then Jezreel is the next best option for this, he is the WBA world super-featherweight champion.
  3. Terry Flanagan (33-0, 13 KOs): Vasyl Lomachenko could challenge Flanagan for his WBO lightweight title. Flanagan’s promoter Frank Warren even had talks with Lomachenko’s promoter Top Rank before Saturday, when Flanagan was also in action.
  4. Mikey Garcia (36-0, 30 KOs): He is a three weight world champion and he just one the WBC lightweight belt by knocking out Dejan Zlaticanin in January.
  5. Terence Crawford (30-0, 21 KOs): Lomachenko already said that he is working his way to get that fight, he believes people wants to see that fight happen. Terence will defend his WBO and WBC world titles against Felix Diaz on May 20.
