VASYL LOMACHENKO has confirmed he will remain at super-featherweight after making history by winning a world title in a second weight class in just his seventh fight last month.

The masterful Ukrainian destroyed Roman Martinez in five rounds to lift the WBO 130lb world title, having previously held the featherweight version.

The 28-year-old won the featherweight world title in just his third fight when he outpointed the supremely talented Gary Russell Jnr in 2014.
