How to watch Lomachenko vs. Crolla live stream online
Bloody Elbow has all the details on Vasiliy Lomachenko vs. Anthony Crolla right here, including fight card, fight time, live stream info, results, and more.
Top Rank Boxing on ESPN+ features pound-for-pound boxing king Vasyl Lomachenko (12-1, 9 KOs), as he defends his WBA and WBO lightweight titles against former WBA champion Anthony Crolla (34-6-3, 13 KOs). The card takes place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Friday, April 12th.
Lomachenko unified two of the four major titles last December when he bested WBO champion Jose Pedraza by unanimous decision. The two-time Olympic gold medalist started 2018 by stopping Jorge Linares to capture the WBA strap, and he has visions of becoming an undisputed champ. In the meantime, he has a mandatory challenger to take care of in the form of Crolla. The native of Manchester, England became world champion in 2015, defended the belt one time, then lost to Jorge Linares twice. He’s built his way back up the rankings and clinched a title shot with a victory over Daud Yordan, his third in a row. That said, Crolla is nowhere near Lomachenko’s league, and if he does somehow beat Vasiliy, it’d be one of the biggest upsets in boxing history.
