The first round looked as though, the boxing fans will be seeing a more competitive fight than expected with a back and forth battle, very cagey and looked like the fight could go either way..
The second round wasn’t as the first thought, as Lomachenko established his dominance with a southpaw jab and cornered Crolla before landing left hands to the head and body.
