Anthony Crolla: Briton loses to Vasyl Lomachenko in Los Angeles

Anthony Crolla: Briton loses to Vasyl Lomachenko in Los Angeles

After a short left downstairs, Lomachenko blasted "Million Dollar" with a missile of a right to the head, sending Crolla face-first to the canvas. Lomachenko initially thought the fight had been stopped.

Lomachenko brutalized his opponent throughout their fight.

"For me it was very comfortable, because I worked with two hands", Lomachenko said.

The 31-year-old Lomachenko once again proved everyone that without an ideal opponent he still puts on a quite show and let the world know that he's the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world.

"I want to unify all the titles", said Lomachenko, adding he wants to fight Mikey Garcia, who holds the WBC lightweight title.

Tonight will be an exciting bout, with Lomachenko checking in with only one loss coming from the hands of Orlando Salido, we'll see if Crolla is capable of joining the elite and regaining his WBA title and adding the WBO title as well.

Crolla dropped to 34-7-3 as he landed just a handful of punches and only survived the third round because of the bell.

Crolla couldn't escape Lomachenko's combinations on the ropes late in the third round, but made it to the bell at Reiss' discretion.

The crowd of 10,100 at Staples Center Arena came looking for a knockout and they got exactly that.

The Ukrainian delivered a devastating knock-out in the fourth round at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to continue his remarkable legacy as the pound-for-pound star of the sport. Crolla looked like a deer in the headlights with no answer to Lomachenko's vastly superior skills and speed.

Lomachenko used the first round as a feeling out round but then went on the full offensive in the second round.

Lomachenko told Sky Sports: "Of course for me, more interest in Mikey Garcia, but if Mikey Garcia can't cut weight, maybe it will be Luke Campbell, maybe we can organise a fight in the UK. That's my goal. I want historic fights", he said.
