Lomachenko Wins 3rd Weight Class Title

Lomachenko Wins 3rd Weight Class Title

It was reported recently that Davis' promoter Floyd Mayweather made a call to Lomachenko's promoter in an effort to make the fight.

"That Lomachenko guy is a lot like (Manny) Pacquiao", the bellman opined, still pumped from the kind of rush that comes from having witnessed a competitive, two-way clash involving elite practitioners of the pugilistic arts. "When a fighter wants to fight and the partner wants to fight, the fights get done". We don't know if Lomachenko can land a big punch but I think it will go the distance. That's obvious based on his thoughts about being in the ring with Lomachenko.

However, Jorge's efforts were not enough to keep the two-time Olympic gold medalist from eventually proving that he is in fact the best pound-for-pound boxer now on the planet. As a noted football coach once observed, "Good and big beats good and little".

Twitter went wild over Lomachenko staking his place in boxing history.

"Definitely, we're going to L.A.", Arum said. Though each had weighed in at 134.6 pounds, Linares outweighed Lomachenko by close to a stone in the ring.

That's a wrap from Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. Lomachenko's career is just beginning, and he has much yet to do, but that's the type of path he's on. In the 10th, he found the highlight-finish following a clean eight-punch flurry with a viciously placed hook to the body.

When he eventually reached his feet, referee Ricky Gonzalez determined he couldn't continue at 2:08 of the 10th round.

But the 11-1 man, known as Hi-Tech, pulled himself from the canvas and, four rounds later, dispatched a ideal liver shot to draw the bout to a close. "The first one I took well, but the second one he caught me and surprised me".

Linares has notoriously been cut many times throughout his career, but his cutman this evening was none other than Rudy Hernandez, whose fighters have not lost a bout due to a cut for the last five years.

As a fighter with such an outstanding amateur record and pedigree, Lomachenko wins this one!

The fight was highly eventful and included Linares dropping Lomanchenko in round six. "That's what I will be looking for". Garcia (38-0, 30 KOs), of Oxnard, California, appears headed, however, for a lightweight title unification fight against unbeaten IBF champ Robert Easter Jr.

So has Linares. He was stopped in the 11th round by Antonio DeMarco in a fight for a vacant lightweight title in 2011 at Staples Center. If he is going to try to give me a hard time, I'm going to do it a different way. "He never weighed 152".

Lomachenko seemed to have the fight in control when late in the sixth Linares slammed him with a straight right hand that put the Ukrainian on his trousers for the first time as a pro. Lomachenko took it well and fired punches back at Linares. Judges had it 86-84 Lomachenko, 86-84 Linares and 85-85, the same as Yahoo Sports.

Carlos Adames won a unanimous decision over a tough Alejandro Barrera.
