Utterly Class Lomachenko Floors Crolla With Fourth Round Crushing KO

WBA and WBO lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko continues to impress after an utterly dominant performance against British boxer Anthony Crolla.

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.

The bout could have been finished a round earlier than it was after Lomachenko's vicious onslaught prompted referee Jack Reiss to step in. Security entered the ring but the referee administered a count instead and Crolla survived the third.

The writing was on the wall and within minutes Lomachenko wrote his final line with a pinpoint right hook.
