Pound for pound boxing star Vasyl Lomachenko was made work harder than usual this past Saturday night but credit has to be given to his opponent Jose Pedraza in this regard too.
An excellent performance on his part.
Lomachenko is a three weight world champion but many are questioning how much of a lightweight fighter he really is after last night.
His best win to date is a masterclass no less over former pound for pound rated Guillermo Rigondeaux, granted, but it did come against a man who was a natural super bantamweight.
With Loma wanting a fight against Mikey Garcia next year, a fighter who steps up to welterweight to take on Errol Spence next, one can’t help but wonder with as great as Loma is — will he hit a wall soon in terms of trying to move up through the weights too quickly.
In the meantime, he showed even in round 11 last night where he was at his best, that he’s still one of if not the best boxer in the world today pound for pound:
After the fight Lomachenko told the world’s media that he wishes to capture all four belts in the lightweight division in 2019.
