Instead, he dismantled Crolla (34-7-3, 13 KOs), the 32-year-old former champion from Great Britain, with a brilliant display of clean and creative punches from awkward angles.

A minute into the next round it was all over, Crolla going down just a minute in after a hard right hook from Lomachenko.

Crolla recovered and 11 months later he won the WBA lightweight belt that Lomachenko retained on Friday.

Campbell could be a potential opponent for Lomachenko as he has earned a mandatory shot at the WBC title now held by Mikey Garcia, who is yet to announce if he will vacate the belt. After observing the scene, Vasyl unleashed vicious combinations in the third round that dropped Crolla against the ropes.

Promoter Eddie Hearn said afterwards that Lomachenko's skill was too much for Crolla. The Ukrainian has developed a significant fan base in the boxing-savvy Los Angeles area, where he lives and trains.

Lomachenko's profile has grown exponentially in recent years as he headlined at Madison Square Garden, in Macau and other Los Angeles-area venues before his step up to Staples. "I feel like I'm in Ukraine here".

Lomachenko continued to solidify his claim as the pound-for-pound best in the sport in a short career that has already saw him tie or set boxing records for the fewest fights to win a world title and the fewest to win titles in two and three divisions.

When the action began, it was Lomachenko who took the center of the ring and began to impose his will.

"I want to shock the world and beating him would be one of the biggest upsets of all time", he said. "That's my goal. I want historic fights", Lomachenko said post-fight.
