He has very big experience, he has very good defence.
For me, I just need to show my best style and 'Style Loma', that's it.
I believe that I can win a world title again, and these are the kind of fights that I'm in it for.
I've earned it, it's not like I've been given this shot. Since losing my title to Jorge Linares, I've come back and had three solid wins.
No man is unbeatable. It's been proven with Lomachenko.

I believe Crolla's style is made to order for Lomachenko. Then again, you could probably say that about many fighters out there when they have to go against the top fighter in the world. I do think that when Crolla puts the ear muffs on (and covers up defensively), Lomachenko will find his body an inviting target, and then when Crolla begins to lean forward, look for Lomachenko's uppercuts to score. Six or seven rounds of that should be enough for Lomachenko to get the TKO win.
