Lomachenko Plans To Stay AT 135 Pounds

After becoming a world champion in three different weight classes in just 12 fights, Vasyl Lomachenko looks to homestead at 135 pounds.

While as a guest on Mario Lopez’ 3 Knockdown Rule podcast, the current WBA lightweight champion made it known that he’s looking to unify against WBC champion Mikey Garcia, WBO champion Ray Beltran, and IBF champion Robert Easter.

“I’ll stay at 135 and want to unify the titles with Mikey (Garcia) and with Beltran and maybe Easter. To me, it doesn’t matter. I want to unify,” Lomachenko said.

Lomachenko’s promoter, Bob Arum claimed that Lomachenko could fight comfortably up to 140 pounds, but Lomachenko is a bit unsure.

“I don’t know [if I’ll go to 140],” said Lomachenko, regarding Arum’s comments, ”because this weight, 135, I feel smaller than my opponent. I feel it. But I don’t know, we’ll see. We need to wait a couple years.”

“It’s too early to talk about this now I’m at 135. I want to stay a couple of years at 135. We’ll see.”
