Two world champions want to fight Lomachenko

Lightweight boxing champions Mikey Garcia and Robert Easter Jr. are willing to face Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko, according to the Espreso TV channel.

WBC title holder Garcia and IBF champion Easter will hold a unification bout on July 28. Both Americans have already expressed a desire, in the event of a victory in this match, to fight Ukrainian boxer Vasyl Lomachenko, who holds the WBA lightweight belt.

"The only fight that made sense was a unification and the fighter available was Robert Easter Jr. He's a champion and the man to beat. There's been a lot of talk about Lomachenko and me over the past year. If I get through Robert Easter I'd be unified champ and the only other fight that makes sense is Lomachenko," Garcia said. 

"Lomachenko and Mikey are two skillful guys in the lightweight division and two guys I want to fight. Me and Mikey will do the talking in the ring," Easter said.

Lomachenko made his debut in the lightweight division on May 12 and took the WBA title from Venezuelan Jorge Linares.
