‘Lomachenko vs. Rigondeaux’ full fight highlights

Published

on

Vasyl Lomachenko (10-1, 8 KO’s) further solidified his status as the top P4P fighter in the world last night after forcing fellow 2-time Olympic Gold Medalist, Guillermo Rigondeaux (17-1, 11 KO’s), to quit after six rounds of action.

Lomachenko continually frustrated his opponent with his trademark Matrix like footwork and hand speed forcing Rigondeaux to resort to dirty tactics repeatedly throughout the fight.

In his post-fight interview, Lomachenko would call himself ‘No Mas Chenko” referencing the Sugar Ray Leonard versus Robert Duran sequel from 1980; Lomachenko’s last four opponents either retired or were pulled from the fight by their corner.

Following the fight, Rigondeaux did cite a hurt left hand as the reason he didn’t answer the bell for the 7th. However, there was some confusion captured on camera in his corner in regards to which hand he would use as an excuse before the post-fight interview took place.
