Three-weight world champion, Vasily Lomachenko, has made his prediction ahead of the upcoming undisputed welterweight title fight between Errol Spence Jr and Terence Crawford, giving one the edge due to an advantage in Ring IQ.
‘Loma’ was in an undisputed clash of his own recently, losing a controversial points decision to lightweight king, Devin Haney.
Still, the Ukrainian dreams of fulfilling his goal and holding all four of the 135lbs belts, but seems set to wait on the sidelines as other contenders take their shot.
In an interview with ES NEWS, the 35-year-old looked ahead to the next undisputed fight in the sport as Spence and Crawford clash in a bid to become the first ever four-belt title holder in the history of the welterweight division.
“We were talking about this a couple of days ago! For me, I think it will be Crawford, it’s 55-45 for Crawford, because I think that he is a little bit smarter.
He can adjust during the fight, very quick, it will be very, very interesting. It’s a big fight, it’s a big fight for history, it will be a great fight.”
In line with Lomachenko’s prediction, Crawford will enter the ring the slight favourite.
A two-way rematch clause has been included in the contract for the scrap, meaning that fans can expect to see the titlists go head-to-head once again, possibly even up at super-welterweight.
Crawford will finally stand toe-to-toe with rival, Spence, on July 29 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with fans around the globe set to tune in.
