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.

On Saturday night, Nov. 26, inside of the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, WBO junior featherweight champion Vasyl “Hi-Tech” Lomachenko won a fairly-easy seventh-round stoppage over former featherweight titlist Nicholas “Axe Man” Walters.

Lomachenko was simply in another league, as his great footwork kept him constantly out of harm’s way, while he tagged and countered an onrushing Walters more and more as the rounds went by. After the seventh round, a stanza in which Walters was battered around the ring, the tough Jamaican elected to stay on his stool instead of coming out for more punishment.

While Bob Arum may not have been the biggest fan of Guillermo Rigondeaux during his time promoting the two-time Cuban Gold Medalist, he is still very keen on matching up his former charge with one of his current stars, Vasyl Lomachenko.

The internet continues to pick up buzz about a potential Lomachenko vs. Rigondeaux clash, and Arum seems all for the idea.
