Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Guillermo Rigondeaux Full Fight HD
December 09, 2017 Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Guillermo Rigondeaux at Madison Square Garden Theater, New York for the WBO World Super Featherweight Title
In the battle of the two greatest boxing Olympians Vasyl ‘Hi-Tech’ Lomachenko was successfully defended his WBO World Super Featherweight against fellow olympic gold medalist Guillermo Rigondeaux from Cuba it was a very technical fight for both fighters but Lomachenko was able to solve the Rigondeaux puzzle and successfully landed good shots to the head and body of Rigondeaux, although Rigondeaux uses some dirty tactics like holding both Lomachenko’s hand and head it didn’t helped him as the round progresses it was Lomachenko who showed who is the best and top fighter pound for pound.
Guillermo Rigondeaux also lost one point for holding in round six after that Lomachenko was out landing and outworking Rigondeaux, at the End of round Vasyle Lomachenko landed some good shots. Rigondeaux refuses to answer in round 7th and decided to quit on his stool.
After the fight he claimed that he had a hand injury which he felt in the second round. Maybe he his just looking for a easier way out from that fight because he was just getting outclassed by Lomachenko round after round.
Vasyl Lomachenko joking telling that he should change his name from Vasyl Lamchenko to Vasyl NO-MASChenko because this is the 4th time that he makes his opponent quit the first one was Nicholas Walters a big and strong puncher followed by Jason Sosa and August this year he also makes Miguel Marriaga quit and the latest victim is one of the best Boxing Olypian of All Time Guillermo Riguideaux.
Vasyl Lomachenko said after the fight that he was not satified of the win because Guillermo Rigondeaux does not belongs to this weight division.
Debate was going on for years on who is the best boxing Olympian of all time and now the fight was over it was really a little bit disappointing for boxing fans to see someone as great as Rigondeaux quit like that most of people saw the fight says that Rigondeaux was just making an excuse and a way out of the fight because Rigondeaux was never had a hand injury before and he barely throws a punch in this fight how can he injure his hand if he was not throwing some hard shots?
Whats Next for Guillermo Rigondeaux?
Now he knows that he have no chance against Lomachenko and he don’t even say something like he want a rematch I think its really clear now for him that Loma is too big, too strong and too good for him. Rigondeaux might go back to Super bantamweight and fight the likes of Jessie Magdaleno and other fellow champion Rey Vargas or the new IBF Champ Ryosuke Iwasa.
So what could possible next for Vasyl Lomachenko?
I thin a fight with fellow Champion Mikey Garcia would be a good one both boxers also agreed to fight at 135lbs weight there are also other options for Loma like unifying the titles at Lightweight against fellow champions Miguel Berchelt who is a WBC Lightweight Champion and also the new WBA Lightweight Champion Alberto Machado.
