 The promoter named the likely date of Lomachenko's next fight and the names of potential opponents

After defeating Kambosos, the Ukrainian can expect a unification title fight.

Bob Arum, the promoter of IBF world lightweight champion Vasiliy Lomachenko, assessed the future prospects of his client after a bright victory over Australian George Kambosos.

According to him, the Ukrainian can hold his next fight in November of this year. Lomachenko's potential opponents are Americans – WBC lightweight world champion Shakur Stevenson and WBA title holder in this division Gervonta Davis.

“Lomachenko will probably return in November against Shakur Stevenson. We'll see. Can Lomachenko try get fights with Stevenson and Gervonta Davis? Yes. Why not? But let's enjoy the moment and then decide on the next step tomorrow,” Arum said in a comment to FightHype.com.

Note that one of the four main lightweight championship belts (WBO) remains vacant. Ukrainian Denis Berinchyk and Mexican Emmanuel Navarrete will fight for him on May 18.

Recall that Lomachenko knocked out Kambosos in the 11th round and won the vacant IBF world lightweight champion belt. Now the 36-year-old Ukrainian has 18 victories (12 by knockout) and 3 defeats in the professional ring.

It was previously reported that Lomachenko commented on his spectacular victory over Kambosos and winning the championship title. The Australian also spoke about his defeat from the Ukrainian.

The boxing world admired Lomachenko's spectacular victory over Kambosos. The world heavyweight champion according to WBO, WBA, IBO and IBF, Alexander Usik, has already reacted to the success of his godfather and compatriot.
