Lomachenko wants fight with Kambosos

A former world champion in three weight categories, Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko, has reacted to the shock victory of the new undisputed lightweight champion, Australian George Kambosos Jnr, over American Teofimo Lopez.

According to Sky Sports, the Ukrainian boxer said he would like to fight the Australian, Ukrinform reports.

"Before the fight, I gave some chance for Kambosos, but of course I thought Lopez would win this fight. But it is what it is. This is boxing life. Do I want to fight Kambosos? Of course, I want this fight, but first of all, I have a fight on December 11, and my focus is on this fight," Lomachenko said.

Last weekend, Lopez was floored by Kambosos Jnr in the opening round and even a 10th round knockdown of the Australian could not prevent the end of his unbeaten record and his world title reign.

Lomachenko will meet with former IBF world champion Richard Commey in New York on December 11.
