Lomachenko makes boxing history in big title win

Ukraine's Vasyl Lomachenko recovered from a flash knockdown to register a 10th round knockout of Jorge Linares to enhance his pound-for-pound reputation by claiming the World Boxing Association lightweight title in NY on Saturday.

The Venezuelan was on a 13-fight winning streak and was giving the two-time Olympic gold medalist the test he wanted, one that he said would bring out the best in what many already consider the most skilled fighter in the world.

Vasyl Lomachenko in a battle with Jorge Linares has extended its series of early wins to eight fights.

Lomachenko quickly regained control.

Despite on 12 professional bouts, Lomachenko has bags of experience.

Speaking after the fight to ESPN, Lomachenko admitted that Linares landed with a great punch to score the knockdown, but revealed his father told him that he needed to go to the body - and that's exactly what he did to score the big win.

He managed to get to his feet, but doubled over as if unable to shake out the cobwebs.

He gamely pulled himself up, but was wobbly as he arose and referee Ricky Gonzalez waved it off.

Each fighter was ahead 86-84 on a judge's card, while Julie Lederman had it 85-all after nine rounds. Arum said Lomachenko will fight again on August 25 at The Forum in Inglewood, California, but wasn't sure if it would be against WBO lightweight champion Ray Beltran or if Lomachenko would go back to 130.

"It really doesn't bother me to go up in weight", Lomachenko said.

The 32-year-old Lightweight victor is presently available on a 13-fight winning series with with The victor got His year began with this 13th successive triumph and also the other powerful Defense of the names at an unanimous decision conquer Mercito Gesta in January. There really isn't any good reason to disregard the lower weight classes in the sport of Boxing, they present the most action, and the best bang for your buck. Adames didn't throw back, probably not feeling threatened. Lomachenko stood up to him and showed deep-down guts to knock him out.

Lomachenko was able to bloody the nose of Linares in the fifth round.

Vasiliy Lomachenko gave a glimpse on Saturday of what he may become. Lomachenko connected with a multi punch combination to the head and ended it with a liver shot that sent Linares crumbling in pain to the mat.

In the sixth, Lomachenko got too cocky near the end of the round. That right hand [that knocked me down], it was a great punch.

Lesson learned for Lomachenko. With just over a minute left in the eighth, he gained some respect, too, with a huge left uppercut.

But as close as the judges might have had it, the ending was utterly decisive.
