ANDRight now, the one with the upper hand at lightweight is George Kambosos; perhaps to a lesser extent, due to his pedigree, Vasyl Lomachenko. On the one hand, the Australian has in his possession all four world titles, while the Ukrainian seems to have earned a chance to be the contender for the grand prize.

‘Ferocious’ Kambosos is open to taking on the other roosters in the category. “Great performance from Loma (Vasyl Lomachenko), who adds him to the equation along with (Devin) Haney, Tank (Gervonta Davis) and Ryan (Garca) and, even after his defeat, Tefimo (Lpez). I am looking forward to facing these warriors in 2022, “said the champion after the Lomachenko match.

Without a doubt, the triumph of ‘Matrix’ against Commey (117-110, 119-108 and 119-108) at Madison Square Garden has put him back almost on the ‘pole’ of the category. According to the promoter Bob arum, the unification “depends on what Kambosos wants to do, or what the organizations order. They are telling us that the WBO is going to order a mandatory defense against Lomachenko.”

In any case, light weight, perhaps the most interesting category at the moment, can offer a series of extraordinary fights as long as all those mentioned so far do not decide to move weight. The one who is perhaps more ‘off the hook’, due to his inactivity, is Ryan Garcia and the pgil with the most poster at the moment, apart from Loma, is Gervonta Davis. Haney, like Garcia, still has a lot to prove.

Either way, if these fighters really aspire to greatness, they must go up against each other now. With Kambosos as the surprise element of the year, only Tefimo and ‘High Tech’ have faced each other, while ‘Tank’ has had prominent rivals, but has been jumping in category and it remains to be seen if it focuses on the lightweight.
