Three-weight world champion Lomachenko hasn't had a strap for four years but the 36-year-old's determination and will to win hasn't dimmed in that time. The Matrix is one of boxing's most-skilled operators, a switch hitter with exceptional hand speed, head movement and technical quality, and will be desperate for the win after being on the end of a controversial points defeat to undisputed champion Devin Haney a year ago. With a future mega-bout with WBC title holder Shakur Stevenson on the table, there's no chance of Loma looking too far ahead.

Kambosos is also a former world champion, pulling off one of the biggest upsets in recent boxing history when beating Teofimo Lopez to win the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and The Ring lightweight titles at Madison Square Garden in November 2021. Back-to-back defeats to Haney for the undisputed lightweight crown followed in which he struggled, but a rebuilding win against Maxi Hughes last July was enough to win the minor IBO belt and put himself back in world level contention. 

Ferocious, a former sparring partner of all-time great Manny Pacquiao, is a volume puncher who tries to make life on the inside difficult for his opponent, but will Lomachenko's grade tell? Here's everything you need to watch the Lomachenko vs Kambosos Jr live stream, including live streams from around the world.
