Fight predictions: Who will win?
Lomachenko, ranked the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world with a record of 13 wins and only one loss (a split decision which many see as a fluke), is the strong favorite to win this Saturday. The Ukrainian world champion most recently defeated British fighter Anthony Crolla in April, earning an unsurprising victory in a bout that most agreed was an uneven matchup in favor of Lomachenko.
Campbell is a strong challenger, however, even if he is entering the ring as the underdog. Boasting a record of 20 wins and two losses, Campbell has established himself as one of the top lightweight fighters in the world. He also has a considerable reach advantage over his opponent — but whether or not this will be enough to unseat the Ukrainian champion (who certainly has the speed and finesse to get within his opponent’s longer reach) is yet to be seen. We expect a good showing from the British challenger but ultimately predict a victory by stoppage in favor of Lomachenko.
