By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

On Saturday night WBA World Lightweight Champion Vasiliy Lomachenko (12-1 / 9 by KO) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over WBO World Lightweight Champion Jose Pedraza (25-2 / 12 by KO).  With both titles on the line, the bout took place in the Hulu Theater, at Madison Square Garden, New York, and was televised nationally on ESPN 다운로드.

This was really a tactical matchup with Lomachenko controlling the action 다운로드. Although Pedraza certainly came to fight, he did his best to make it a competitive affair.  This may well have been Pedraza’s best performance ever, but it came against, arguably, the best “pound for pound” fighter in the world today and it just wasn’t enough 다운로드.

Lomachenko put an exclamation point on the fight in round eleven as he battered Pedraza in a dominant performance and scored two knockdowns!  A gutsy Pedraza was reeling and ready to go, but was saved by the bell 다운로드.

While some may have thought the fight was close, Lomachenko clearly won round after round.  The official scores were: 119-107, 117-109, 117-109, while I also scored the bout 117 -109.  All in favor of Lomachenko 역전재판 시리즈 다운로드.

With competition in lightweight division relatively thin, Lomachenko has called out undefeated WBC World Lightweight Champion Mikey Garcia (39-0 / 30 by KO).  But that will have to wait until after Garcia’s March 16, 2019 showdown with undefeated IBF World Welterweight Champion Errol Spence Jr. (24-0 / 21 by KO).

In the meantime, potential fights that would make sense for Lomachencko would be with undefeated WBA World Junior Lightweight Champion Gevonta Davis (20-0 / 19 by KO) or once beaten Miguel Berchelt (34-1 / 30 by KO) … assuming they can agree on the issue of weight. 

One thought on “Lomachenko by Decision over Pedraza in Lightweight Unification Bout

  1. I had it the same score as you David. Pedraza is a solid boxer. I consider it a solid win for Loma. I think Berchelt may be stiffer comp than Davis with Garcia tied up.
