    I dunno why he doesn't do a few domestic fights clean up and easier money.
    Lomachenko is way above Luke , he's above everyone

    The bigger the reputation, the harder the fall. I wouldn't dismiss Luke's chances out of hand.

    "The Harder They Come"

    Well, they tell me of a pie up in the sky
    Waiting for me when I die
    But between the day you're born and when you die
    They never seem to hear even your cry

    So as sure as the sun will shine
    I'm gonna get my share now, what's mine
    And then the harder they come
    The harder they fall, one and all
    Ooh, the harder they come
    The harder they fall, one and all

    Well, the oppressors are trying to keep me down
    Trying to drive me underground
    And they think that they have got the battle won
    I say forgive them Lord, they know not what they've done

    'Cause, as sure as the sun will shine
    I'm gonna get my share now, what's mine
    And then the harder they come
    The harder they fall, one and all
    Ooh, the harder they come
    Harder they fall, one and all

    And I keep on fighting for the things I want
    Though I know that when you're dead you can't
    But I'd rather be a free man in my grave
    Than living as a puppet or a slave

    So as sure as the sun will shine
    I'm gonna get my share now, what's mine
    And then the harder they come
    The harder they fall, one and all
    Ooh, the harder they come
    Harder they fall, one and all
    Hey, the harder they come
    Harder they fall, one and all
    What I say now
    What I Say now

    What I say now
    What I say, one time
    The harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all
    The harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all

    Luke's a very talented lad, but this is a hell of a jump. Good luck to him.

    I have had the privilege of chatting to Luke a few times recently. He is totally down to earth and a thoroughly top man. He’s a great ambassador for the region and I wish him every success.

    Big step, but despite Luke’s baby face he isn’t young so needs big fights

    Good luck to him, and I think he could do it actually

    Lomachenko is a machine. Can't see Luke winning myself but will be cheering him on. He should give a better performance than Crolla.

    I recall a little known at the time Lloyd Honeygan going to the states and fighting the worlds best pound for pound boxer at the time, Don Curry, in his own back yard. Against all odds Honeygan knocked ten bells out of Curry to get a shock win which reverberated around the world. Dare to dream Luke.

    That was class - remember it well.

    Think they showed the highlights on a Sunday afternoon, after the live football.

    I recall that scrap. Didn't Curry have problems making the weight? I'm sure he moved up in weight and won another title. Still Honeyghan was class that day and dominated from start to finish.

    I'll be there! I suspect the undercard wouldn't be too shabby either
