WBA August Rankings and Boxer of the Month.

The World Boxing Association (WBA) Classifications Committee announced its rankings for August, which includes the 15 best boxers in the 17 weight divisions. Only these boxers have the possibility of aspiring to a world title fight within their respective divisions.

The “Boxer of the Month” distinction was awarded to Vasyl Lomachenko, who overcame Luke Campbell via unanimous decision at the O2 Arena in London. The Super Lightweight Champion of the World Boxing Association (WBA) won with scores of 118-109, 119-108 and 119-108 to continue on his way as one of the best in the world today.

“Loma” had to adapt during the fight against a highly skilled rival with great technique in Campbell. In the early rounds he was very cautious but little by little he was finding spaces to hurt the midsection of Campbell and also connect strong blows to the face that often displaced the challenger.

Despite the great difference with which he won on the cards, Lomachenko had to be put through discomfort from a highly skilled fighter in Campbell. In several exchanges during the confrontation, Lomachenko received some blows that stung him but he was never in serious danger due to his explosion and speed.

In round 11, the Super Champion managed to knock down Campbell after a sequence in which he hurt him with several combinations. The challenger put a knee on the canvas and recuperated, only to survive the assault and finish the fight. With the victory, Lomachenko made it clear once again that he is one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world.

The honorable mention for boxer of the month is Vergil Ortiz Jr., who captured the World Boxing Association (WBA) Gold Welterweight Title with an emphatic sixth round stoppage of Antonio Orozco at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, Texas. With the victory Ortiz Jr. moved his record to 14-0, with all of his victories coming by way of knockout.
