Saturday April 8th see’s the return of one of the best fighters P4P in the world today Ukraine’s Vasyl Lomachenko!
The two time Olympic gold winner has quickly rose under the radar to Pound for Pound superstar in just 8 fights, although only hardcore fans know who he is, his fan base is steadily growing and people are starting to take notice of the little maestro, fundamentally sound and defensively responsible he rarely puts a foot wrong inside the ring!
Outside the ring he’s fun to be around and unique not just with his training methods or his dressing up as superheroes but he is a true student of the game and master of his craft, with a burning desire and hunger that looms within to be the best and so far he’s proving to be one of the best right now, Saturday night the WBO junior Lightweight champion takes on tough man Jason Sosa which promises to be another spectacular performance!
Last time out Lomachenko took on The Axe man Nicholas Walters an unbeaten Legit threat and high level fighter, the bout was deemed a risk and a true 50/50 fight by most myself included, however we saw something totally different we saw Walters get dominated and totally outclassed by the Ukrainian wizard forcing Walters to quit after an embarrassing 7 rounds, that fight put Lomachenko in the elite group of p4p fighters!
He has come along way since his early loss to Orlando Salido and has looked unstoppable since! He beat the highly touted Gary Russell JR , destroyed Rocky Martinez as well as walters!
Up next it’s Jason Sosa a tough rugged competitor who loves to fight, Sosa has been on a good run himself as of late he fought to a controversial draw with Nicholas Walters, he defeated the always tough Javier Fortuna last year to win WBA the Junior Lightweight title.
He made his first defence vs Britain’s Stephen Smith and successfully beat him, but faces a totally different beast this weekend in Lomachenko!
Does he stand a chance is whats on everyones mind?
Well you always have a chance just like Salido did not long ago, however Lomachenko has found his feet in the professional ranks and seems to be growing rapidly and getting better every fight! He is the big favourite going in by every and all experts and bookmakers!
My prediction for this one guys is a complete shut out for the Ukraine man, technically superior fighter, faster smarter just a all round better fighter and athlete. Sosa is very tough but very rugged and technically poor, I expect Lomachenko to counter him to death and totally shut down anything Sosa brings to the table, this is a showcase fight for Loma in my opinion and see a total shut out!
With bigger names and fights on the horizon for Lomachenko the future is bright and will tell us more about this unique technician, perhaps we will see him move up to face Mikey Garcia or Terence Crawford in the near future both fights would test him to the limit and potentially propel him to superstar status if he could shock either one!
