BOXING fans may have to savour Vasyl Lomachenko (13-1, 10 KOs) over the next year or two as the 31-year-old has admitted that he is coming towards the end of a long amateur and professional career, and he also stated that he has other areas of interest in his life.

Speaking to Mike Costello for Radio 5, the dazzling Ukrainian said that he is still driven by a thirst for titles, and hopes to add the vacant WBC lightweight one to his WBA Super world and WBO world belts when he meets Luke Campbell (20-2, 16 early) at the O2 on Saturday yet he has not given much thought to what happens immediately after that. “Always, something has to end,” he said.

“I want to hunt, I want to fish every day. Now I can’t do this as I train every day. My motivation, my goal, is four titles [Richard Commey holds the IBF title]. After, I don’t know what happens. Now it’s two more belts.”
