On Saturday night, WBO junior lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko successfully defended his WBO junior lightweight title with a 9th round TKO over former champion Jason Sosa.
Lomachenko (8-1, 6 KO’s), who defeated his third former champion in a row, was a little too much for Sosa (20-2-4, 15 KO’s), who never stopped trying despite being outmatched. Following the ninth round, Sosa’s corner wisely elected to halt the action in the face of Lomachenko’s dominance.
