Tonight: Vasyl Lomachenko vs Miguel Marriaga

Probably not gonna be much of a fight, but Vasyl Lomachenko defends his WBO World super featherweight title tonight against Miguel Marriaga @ Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles, California. Marriaga is ranked 29th by boxrec at featherweight, but a solid fighter with power who’s never been knocked out…until tonight I suspect.

Basically, none of the big dogs are willing to fight Lomachenko because he makes them look really stupid in the ring. Nobody in boxing today or recent memory has his command of footwork, distance, timing, and offensive arsenal needed to land punches from any angle while maintaining a magnificent defense.

I interpret this bout as a stay busy showcase for future prospective fights with Jorge Linares likely huge in Japan or southern California against Mikey Garcia.

Here he is with fellow P4Per, Mikey Garcia who is willing to move back to 135 lbs to fight Lomachenko who is willing to move up to 135. As you can see, Lomachenko is of a diminutive stature compared to the huge Garcia who last fought at 140 and is probably around 155lbs for these shots. We’ll see who steps up next, but Marriaga first.
