Vasyl Lomachenko vs Salido
I guess it is fitting in a way that the Ukraine has taken over global headlines in a scary way that on a more positive note one of its exports is one of the worlds best boxers in only his second professional fight.
Vasyl Lomachenko 2 time Olympic Gold Medalist will fight rugged 33 year old veteran Orlando Salido for Salido's 126 pound WBO title this Saturday March 1. This fight is the one that I a most interested in seeing that has been scheduled this year. I will be pulling for Lomachenko but I do think his people are rushing him a little as I think he should get used to the longer professional fight distances this fight is scheduled for 12 rounds as amateur fights are 3 rounds in length. The Usual time for top amateur fighter to fight for a title is usually about 12-15 fights though it sometimes happens quicker this is a especially quick learning curve for Lomachenko but I eagerly look to see if he can pull of the high wire act.
