A treat is in store for boxing fans this weekend as pound-for-pound No1 Vasyl ‘Hi-Tech’ Lomachenko is set to step into the ring in London on Saturday night with a much awaited showdown against Hull’s Luke Campbell.
WBA (Super), WBO and The Ring lightweight titles are all on the line, and you won’t need miss a second of the action, no matter where you are in the world, by following our Lomachenko vs Campbell live stream guide below.
Lomachenko vs Campbell: where and when?
What date is it? The Lomachenko vs Campbell fight is set to take place on Saturday August 31.
What time is it? You can expect the ring walk to begin at around 10.30pm BST – that’s 2.30pm PT and 5.30pm ET for fight fans in the US.
Where is it? The O2 in London.
Lomachenko’s reputation as a legend still operating in the ring will only grow further should he add a third world lightweight title to his collection at the O2 on Saturday.
Widely regarded as the world’s best boxer, the 31-year-old Ukrainian won a world title in his third professional fight, became a two-weight champion in his seventh and a three-weight world champion by the time of his twelfth – all this on top of his fearsome amateur record of 396 wins to one loss.
Lomachenko’s last outing in the ring saw him retain his unified lightweight world title in a dominating display against Anthony Crolla in April. Tonight brings another British challenger and a pop at the vacant WBC title, but former Olympic champion Luke Campbell should bring a greater challenge this time out.
Campbell, (20-2, 16 KOs), 31, may have lost his only previous title fight two years ago against Jorge Linares for the WBA title, but he lost on a contentious split points decision and has shown plenty evidence he’s ready for another stab at the top level.
