Lomachenko vs. Campbell Agreement Reached, Says WBC

By Miguel Rivera

The representatives of Vasiliy Lomachenko and Luke Campbell have reached an agreement to carry out their battle for the vacant lightweight title of the World Boxing Council on August 31, according to World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman.

The WBC's purse bid, which was scheduled for Wednesday, has been canceled.

Sulaiman revealed that a deal reached on Tuesday, noting that the battle will be in London. The fight is expected to be supported by another title fight, between world champion Charlie Edwards and the Mexican challenger Julio César 'Rey' Martínez.


Lomachenko already holds the lightweight world titles of the World Boxing Association and the World Boxing Organization.

The belt became vacant when Mikey Garcia moved up in weight, with Campbell being the highest rated challenger.

The purse bid had been postponed more than once, because promoters Bob Arum and Eddie Hearn informed Sulaimán that there were just a few details remaining to organize the fight, which would be distributed on United States through the ESPN platfom and on British soil by Sky Sports. .

The winner of Lomachenko vs. Campbell will walk away with three world titles, will likely target a a unification fight with the champion of the International Boxing Federation, which this Friday will be contested by world champion Richard Commey and challenger Ray Beltrán, but that in theory could be placed on the shelf because the winner of that contest will be obligated to make a mandatory defense against the winner of the final eliminator between Teofimo López and Masayoshi Nakatani, who fight on July 19.
