The Ukrainian fighter will face England’s Luke Campbell at the O2 Arena on Saturday night

Vasyl Lomachenko, the pound-for-pound best boxer in the world, joined Carl Frampton for an exclusive interview in the latest episode of TKO with 32 Red.

Lomachenko faces Luke Campbell at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday night, with the Englishman the massive underdog in what will be Lomachenko’s first fight in the UK since he was an amateur.

The unified lightweight world champion has lost just once in his professional career – to Orlando Salido in his second professional fight – and beat Campbell’s compatriot Ant Crolla in his last bout in April of this year. He also won gold at the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games.

Speaking to Frampton ahead of the fight, the Ukrainian discussed a number of topics, from how playing different sports has helped him have the ‘fastest feet in boxing’, to the death of his good friend Maxim Dadashev.
