Anthony Crolla of Great Britain fights Jorge Linares of Venezuela during the WBC Diamand and Ring Magazine Lightweight Championship rematch between Jorge Linares and Anthony Crolla at Manchester Arena

Top Rank Boxing event from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, Lomachenko successfully retained his unified lightweight championship. Instead, however, with Lomachenko celebrating his supposed victory, Reiss ruled it merely a knockdown as Crolla would have gone down if not supported by the ring ropes.

"Obviously it was a heavy knockout - a temple shot he didn't see", Hearn told Sky Sports. Lomachenko outlanded Crolla 72-12, according to CompuBox, and limited his opponent to five punches landed or fewer in all four rounds.

Had Lomachenko not taken the Crolla fight, he would have been stripped of one of his 135-pound belts.

"Everybody said to him - [the promoter] Bob Arum, every fighter at ringside - "There's no disgrace in that, mate". Crolla was hand picked by the WBA as Loma's mandatory challenger. It took until only the second round for Lomachenko to open up and hit his stride offensively.

"I think they [should have] throw the towel in, but it is, what it is". The Ukrainian was far too much for Crolla to handle as "Hi-Tech" did whatever he wanted before putting him away in spectacular fashion in the fourth. When you do that against Lomachenko, you leave yourself wide open with gaps.
