//What an effort Campbell!

What an effort Campbell!

Luke Campbell was top class Vs Loma put that just isn’t good enough against the very best in the world IMO.

Vasyl Lomachenko beat Luke Campbell by wide, unanimous decision in a thrilling fight on Saturday night at the O2 Arena in London.

The pound-for-pound king floored his challenger in round eleven en route to a dominant victory, despite a brilliant effort from the Brit.

The bout began with close, competitive early rounds as Lomachenko went through his usual routine of closely studying his opponent and ‘downloading the information’ necessary to combat him.

In round five the champion began to ramp up the gears, as he built a lead and then hurt Campbell for the first time in the fight.

The Brit narrowly survived the session, staggering to the bell after being hit with crippling body shots – not for the last time.

Despite ultimately being outclassed, Campbell was never overawed and remained competitive throughout.

He battered Lomachenko’s body throughout the middle rounds and even appeared to hurt him for a fleeting moment in round seven.

The Ukrainian was temporarily buzzed but quickly turned the tables as he almost instantly returned the favor and had the Brit on the back foot again by the end of the session.
