Confirmed: winner of Lomachenko v Pedraza fights Crolla next

Eddie Hearn just announced on his instagram account that he received a letter overnight from the WBA that the winner of Vasyl Lomachenko and Jose Pedraza will have to fight Anthony ‘Million Doller’ Crolla next. This comes in the wake of Crolla’s convincing win last month against Daud Yordan, after which Eddie Hearn confirmed that this would be the fight they would look to.

Could we see Crolla vs Lomachenko next?

Crolla has made it known on more than one occasion that at this stage of his career he only wants to fight the best. Something he is backing up fight after fight. We could likely see Crolla vs Lomachenko next, widely regarded as the best amateur of all time and the current pound for pound best boxer in the world. A challenge I am sure he would grasp with both hands for the potential of a career defining moment. whatever happens, you will see the Manchester favourite fight for world honours again.
