Legendary promoter Bob Arum has given a big indication as to what Vasyl Lomachenko's next move will be.
After moving up to 135lbs last year to dethrone WBA Champion Jorge Linares, meaning he's won World Titles in three weight divisions, Loma then unified with WBO titlist Jose Pedraza.
Next up, the Ukrainian superstar looks set for another unification bout against the winner of Richard Commey v Isa Chaniev on February 2nd.
“Lomachenko is going to fight the winner of Commey and the Russian that’s on our February 2 card, going to fight them in April,” the 87-year-old promoter told Boxing News this week.
Richard Commey dropped a controversial decision against Robert Easter Jr in previous IBF Lightweight Title tilt back in September 2016. Next month he meets Russian Chaniev for the same belt - which Mikey Garcia vacated - on the Eleider Alvarez v Sergey Kovalev card, live on BoxNation.
Lomachenko wants to put his name in the history books by unifying all four World Titles to become undisputed World Champion. That dream looks one step closer to becoming a reality.
A win over Commey/Chaniev would leave just one belt remaining, the WBC crown which belongs to Garcia. The Mexican challenges Welterweight ruler Errol Spence Jr in March, but could drop back down to Lightweight to face Lomachenko.

Another one of Lomachenko's dreams is to fight in Great Britain, where he visited in September and filmed BoxNation Meets Lomachenko.
Arum revealed that could happen later this year: “Then if all goes well we’re going to try to have him come to the UK, to fight [Anthony] Crolla.”
