Pound-for-pound wonder Vasyl Lomachenko broke more records on Saturday night after dethroning Jorge Linares to become WBA World Lightweight Champion.

The captivating match-up at Madison Square Garden lived up to the hype as Lomachenko recovered from a knockdown to stop Linares with a sickening liver shot in round 10.

"I relaxed a little bit. He used his speed and he was throwing a lot of counter-punches, but I thought I already did what I needed to do. I was wrong and he caught me," the Ukrainian said on the knockdown. "It was a great shot. It happens."

After Saturday's triumph, Lomachenko has now lifted World Titles at Featherweight, Super-Featherweight and Lightweight in just 12 professional outings, proving that he is one of the best boxers on the globe.

"Linares is a great Champion and the fight was good for the fans and everybody. It was a great fight," he added.

The question on everybody's lips is 'Who can beat him in this form?'. Mikey Garcia holds the WBC crown at 135lbs, and is rumoured to be facing IBF Champion Robert Easter Jr in the summer.

Lomachenko could take on Ray Beltran, who holds the WBO belt, in August. A win could set up a potential four-belt unification with Garcia later this year.

However, promoter Bob Arum is concerned about how the negotiations would go because Garcia sued Top Rank over his promotional contract in 2014.

"With a Mikey Garcia [fight], it becomes the second coming of Mayweather v Pacquiao," the 86-year-old Arum admitted.

"The negotiations will go on - I may be 90-years-old by the time negotiations finish. I'm tired of that. Whoever's the best available, whichever makes the most sense, that’s what we're gonna go after."
