Loma vs Rigo Breakdown with Frank Lotierzo – This Saturday night at the Madison Square Garden Theater and on ESPN, Vasyl Lomachenko and Guillermo Rigondeaux fight for the WBO world 130-pound title. This is the first time that two men who have both won a pair of Olympic gold medals have met as professionals and that gives the fight added hype.
In this latest TBC report, our veteran analyst Frank Lotierzo looks at Saturday’s match-up in depth. Both men are among the most decorated amateur fighters in history and both men are in the top 5 of every pound for pound list out there as professionals. Rigondeaux (17-0) is moving up two weight classes to take on Lomachenko, who is making the fourth defense of his WBO world title.
The fact is that Lomchenko is one of boxing’s hottest commodities as he has risen quickly over the past year. Rigondeaux’s story is different as he has had several opportunities come up in big fights but he has failed to catch on despite winning them all. Will the Lomachenko train keep rolling or does the Cuban master have a derailment in the works? We find out more on Saturday night.
