Vasiliy Lomachenko v George Kambosos: Prediction, tips & odds

Our resident boxing expert Rob Tebbutt shares his prediction and tips for this weekend's hugely-anticipated IBF lightweight world title showdown in Perth, Australia.

Vasiliy Lomachenko v George Kambosos Tips

Vasiliy Lomachenko - By KO, TKO or Disqualification @ 12/5
Vasiliy Lomachenko - Between Rounds 7 - 12 @ 4/1

In the early hours of Sunday morning, we see the return of Vasiliy Lomachenko as the Ukrainian takes on another former world champion in George Kambosos for the vacant IBF lightweight title.

Lomachenko is, of course, one of the best technicians in all of boxing was very unfortunate in many peoples' eyes to come out of the Devin Haney fight on the back of a loss, but has another opportunity of becoming a world champion down under.

Kambosos is very tough, loves to come forward and apply the pressure. He's a very solid professional but I just don't feel that he is going to have enough in his locker to overcome the superior skillset of Lomachenko.

We saw Kambosos struggle against another southpaw in Maxi Hughes last time out, in a fight that many people thought that he was very fortunate to have won.

Lomachenko is a level above Hughes however, and I expect the Ukrainian to take to the ring and really look to put the pressure on and really carve Kambosos open.

I feel that Lomachenko will be able to find the gaps of Kambosos and expose his weaknesses with real regularity, which is why I like the look of the 12/5 on offer for the betting favourite to win the fight inside the distance.

That left hand of his will work both the head and body of his opponent, and I just have a feeling that the constant barrage of shots will take their toll during the latter stages of the fight.

Again, because of that, as well as my play on Lomachenko winning the fight 'By KO, TKO or Disqualification' at 12/5, I will also be taking a look at the Ukrainian getting Kambosos out of there during the second half of the fight - 'Between Rounds 7 - 12' at 4/1.
