Hull boxer Luke Campbell will challenge for three world titles and the Ring Magazine Lightweight belt when he faces pound-for-pound number one Vasiliy Lomachenko at London's O2 Arena next month.
The clash brings together two Olympians and is Campbell's second attempt at becoming a world champion.
Lomachenko (13-1 10 KOs), who went 396-1 as an amateur, won gold in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics and has won World titles at Featherweight, Super-Featherweight and Lightweight in the paid ranks. He last fought in April at Staples Center in Los Angeles, taking out mandatory challenger Anthony Crolla in four rounds. The Ukrainian’s punch power and supreme boxing ability have seen him rise to the top of the 135lbs division and on August 31 he will step through the ropes as a pro for the first time on UK soil.
Campbell (20-2, 16 KOs) is ranked number one in the WBC and landed the mandatory slot for the World title when he exacted revenge over Frenchman Yvan Mendy at Wembley Stadium, London in September 2017. Last time out he stopped Mexico's Adrian Young in five rounds in Philadelphia.
The London 2012 Olympic Gold medal star fell short in his first World title clash after being edged out via split decision against then-WBA and WBC Diamond king Jorge Linares in September 2017 in Los Angeles.
