On a Friday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Vasyl “Hi-Tek” Lomachenko (12-1, 9 KO) will defend his WBO and WBA Lightweight titles against Anthony “Million Dollar” Crolla (34-6-3, 13 KO). Usually, a fighter of Lomachenko’s ilk wouldn’t fight on a Friday, but this Top Rank card will kick off a huge combat sports weekend for ESPN.
The event will not be broadcast on the ESPN. Instead, it will be streamed on ESPN+. The undercard begins at 8pm ET, but the main presentation starts at 11 PM ET. Lomachenko has battled a shoulder injury, but he returned to the ring with a victory over Jose Pedraza in December to add the WBO title to his list of accomplishments.
Lomachenko sits near the top of most sensible pound-for-pound lists, and his bouts are an attraction.
Crolla is the former WBA champion, but he lost his title to Jorge Linares back in September 2016 and subsequently lost the rematch as well. Lomachenko lifted the WBA belt off Linares in 2018 at Madison Square Garden via KO. Crolla has won three straight bouts since the second loss to Linares and he will be looking to solve the Lomachenko riddle. Most recently, Crolla scored a unanimous-decision win over Daud Yordan in November.
Crolla is a Manchester native and Friday’s bout with Lomachenko will be only his second in the United States.

Vijender Singh vs Calvin Metcalf
Guido Vianello vs Lawrence Gabriel
Chris Zavala vs Sergio Gonzales

Although Lomachenko has seemingly found his physical ceiling at lightweight and was forced to make adjustments against Linares and Jose Pedraza to offset the size difference, Crolla simply doesn’t have the punching power to make Lomachenko pay. He also isn’t technical enough to be a threat to outbox the world’s best boxer.
It will be an uphill battle for Crolla from the start and it may take a commitment to slowing down the pace of the fight and trying to time Lomachenko coming in with big counter shots to have any type of success. The problem even with that strategy is how well Lomachenko can potshot to the body to wear his opponents down. Simply put: Crolla is a huge underdog for a reason and despite a three-fight win streak which includes a decision over Ricky Burns, this is a style matchup that is all kinds of wrong for him.
