New York – It was suppose to be an elite match up between two former gold Olympic medalist and world champions. It was an historic event and many expected a chest match but it turned out to be a one sided fight. Vasyl Lomachenko vs Guillermo Rigondeaux made boxing history Saturday night, Lomachenko made his own history by making it like easy work over the Cuban. Boxing Headz anticipated a great boxing event but it was a shut out from start to finish. For 6 rounds “Hi Tech” Lomachenko toyed with Rigondeaux who only landed 12 punches the entire fight. After the 6th round, going into the 7th Rigondeaux did not come out citing an injury to his hand. It was hard to see when and if he hurt his hand after landing just a few shots. The timing and manner lead to many believe that he flat out quit. That is something Rigondeaux will have to live with out and may ultimately be his legacy. After the fight in the post fight interview Lomachenko said he may change his name to “No Mas Chenko” as of late many fighters have refused to answer the bell. Vasyl Lomachenko defended his WBO title and looked great in route to the TKO win to improve to 10-1 8KOs.
