LUKE CAMPBELL is unfazed by the all-round brilliance of Vasyl Lomachenko as the Hull fighter looks to realise his aim of becoming world champion at the O2 Arena on Saturday night.

Despite a considerable height and reach disadvantage, the Ukrainian is 1/20 with some British bookmakers to add the vacant WBC lightweight crown to his WBA and WBO belts as he looks to clean up in the 135lb division.

Considered by many to be the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet, Lomachenko has already won world titles in three weight classes after just 14 professional contests while he has supposedly only lost twice in more than 400 bouts across both the amateur level and in the paid ranks.
