Lomachenko (13-1, 10 KOs) continued his historic march, which includes titles in three weight divisions, by flooring Crolla face first in Round 4 with a flawless right hook to the side of the head to cap off yet another one-sided performance.

The Ukrainian pound-for-pound king had his complete arsenal at his disposal, including blazing hand speed, devastating punching power and a superior ring IQ. "I want to thank all the fans who came to support me".

Lomachenko (13-1, 10 KOs) brutalized the mandatory challenger for his WBA belt throughout their brief fight, and the Ukrainian almost ended it late in the third round when he knocked Crolla into the ropes. Lomachenko dug blistering punches to the head and body, forcing Crolla (34-7-3, 13 KOs) on the defensive from the start. Commey's injured hand forced Lomachenko's promoters to make this fight with Crolla, rather than surrender his WBA belt.

Crolla, a former world champion from Manchester, had aimed to pull off one of the biggest shocks in boxing history after a win over Daud Yordan last November made him the mandatory challenger for Lomachenko.

Had Lomachenko not taken the Crolla fight, he would have been stripped of one of his 135-pound belts. The fight was promoted by Top Rank Boxing and aired live on the Worldwide Leader in Sports' digital streaming service, ESPN+. He fought for a world title in just his second professional fight and is the fastest fighter in history to become a three division world champion. Four years ago he was badly injured after confronting two men who broke into a neighbour's house.

Lomachenko, 31, proved the oddsmakers correct in defense of his WBO and WBA lightweight titles, knocking the 100-1 underdog out with a hard right hook just under a minute in the fourth round.
