Vasyl Lomachencko and Jorge Linares – A Brief Intro Of Undisputed Champs
Ukrainian prodigy continues his upward trajectory in the sport of boxing. With two golds bagged by him from Olympics, Loma moves towards success by getting himself acknowledged as 10-1 pro and a world champ in two weight divisions. His upcoming bout would be the Ukrainians attempt to securing a belt in the third weight division. Vasyl is working consistently up the ladder of divisions and makes sure that his dominance remains intact as he steers higher.
The Hi-Tech has displayed pure fireworks in his previous four fights, making his opponents regret having fought him. During his last bout against Guillermo Rigondeaux, the exceptionally talented fighter trounced on the latter, wiping the mat with him. So far Lomachencko is an unparalleled beast in the world of combat sports.
When it comes to innate skills, the Venezuelan is next in line to his arch rival Lomachenko. Having embarked on pro journey 15 years ago, Linares has notched up his weight division from starting Featherweight and currently remains an undisputed Lightweight champ. For past six years, he hasn’t let defeat come anywhere near facing off the best of the league. The Golden Boy exhibits some solid techniques and a commendable wit. However, despite his unique abilities, he remains underrated in the boxing world.
With 6 years of supremacy in his division, Linares seems to be an overwhelming opponent for a 10-1 pro moving up a division. Yet the speed and skill of Lomachenko combined with lethal strategy seem a tough battle for the Venezuelan. Although Linares size seems to favour him, he is an underdog at +750.
