Vasiliy Lomachenko has stopped George Kambosos Jr in the 11th round to win the IBF lightweight title at the RAC Arena in Perth, becoming a four-time world champion across three different weight classes.

The Ukrainian star returned from a year-long layoff to punish his opponent over 10 rounds before dropping him early in the 11th. Kambosos beat the count but Lomachenko quickly closed it and dropped Kambosos again with a pair of body shots, which prompted his corner to throw in the towel.

Lomachenko won virtually every minute of every round in a masterclass performance, outlanding Kambosos by a 175-40 margin according to Compubox’s punch statistics.

Afterward, Lomachenko addressed a mid-fight tweet from Gervonta Davis saying the pair would fight next after Davis’s fight with Frank Martin next month.

“You know, during my boxing career I’ve never run around and I’ve always taken fights,” Lomachenko said. “After I rest a little bit, we can talk about the future.”
