Lomachenko's heavy right capped off a dominant performance in his latest title defense.

32-year-old Crolla said after the bout that his career is nearly over, while for Lomachenko, it remains to be seen just how high this star can fly. Mikey Garcia is among the mentions, but according to Atlas, his loss to Errol Spence Jr. hurt his reputation in the ring.

Thus, Lomachenko won the 13 fight on the professional ring. He stayed there for some time but even when he was helped to his feet his camp still had to support his wobbly legs.

The double Olympic medalist improves to 13-1 in his career, 10 of those wins coming by KO, and called for sterner challenges than that of the overmatched Englishman.

It's someone you have to look up to, someone who's got the right habits, standards and the personality to be that". It doesn't matter if he's got five years left of his contract or five weeks.

Crolla dropped to 34-7-3 as he landed just a handful of punches and only survived the third round because of the bell.

The question is whether he is ready for a mature, seasoned elite opponent like Lomachenko at this stage of his development. Lomachenko wanted to fight IBF champion Richard Commey, but Commey suffered a hand injury.

Had it not been for Vasyl's goal of unifying the lightweight belts, this fight would have likely never taken place. Lomachenko is promoted by Top Rank and fights on ESPN, while Garcia fights for the Premier Boxing Champions created by Al Haymon. Crolla was hand picked by the WBA as Loma's mandatory challenger.

When the second began, Lomachenko began to dig hooks to the body and find ways to get through Crolla's guard.
