Lomachenko Vs. Kambosos – Battle For Vacant IBF Lightweight Title In Perth

Vasiliy Lomachenko vs. George Kambosos is set to fight for the vacant IBF Lightweight title in Perth, Australia on May 12th.

Boxing legends Vasiliy Lomachenko and George Kambosos clash for the vacant IBF Lightweight title in a blockbuster showdown in Perth, Australia on May 12th.

Former IBF/WBA/WBO & Ring lightweight champion George Kambosos Jr. (21-2, 10 KOs) and superstar Vasily Lomachenko (17-3, 11 KOs) will battle for the vacant IBF 135-lb title on May 12 in collision in Perth, Australia.

Staging the fight in Australia gives Kambosos, 30, the home advantage over Lomachenko, which should make for an exciting match. Both fighters are coming off questional fights. Fans on social media want to see this fight happen sooner than May, considering both of these fighters have been inactive for ages.

30-year-old George Kambosos (21-2, 10 KOs) is coming off the win by majority decision against Maxi Hughes last July in Shawnee, Oklahoma. In October and June 2022 in Melbourne, former unified WBA, WBO and IBF lightweight champion lost a pair of fights for the undisputed title by unanimous decision against Devin Haney.

Oxnard, California-based Vasiliy Lomachenko (17-3, 11 KOs) was in action last May in Las Vegas, where he dropped a UD in his bid to dethrone Haney. Prior to that, the 35-year-old southpaw of Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi, Ukraine, defeated Jamaine Ortiz and Richard Commey by unanimous decision and stopped Masayoshi Nakatani in Round 9.
