Tonight Ukrainian champion WBA world lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (11-1, 9 KO’s) in new York will fight with WBO champion Jose Pedrosoi (25-1, 12 KO’s).
To the first unification bout in the career of Lomachenko suitable status as the undisputed favorite. Odds to win Ukrainian star is so insignificant that it can be viewed only under a microscope.
In the background Jorge Linares, who Lomachenko knocked out in heavy fighting in may of this year, Pedraza doesn’t look dangerous opponent. Yes, the Puerto Rican there are very good Amateur school, and the pros could only be stopped by the mentee of Floyd Mayweather Servant Davis, but against Lomachenko all the regalia Pedraza look ridiculous.
By and large, the main intrigue of the upcoming battle is only, whether Lomachenko in the first fight after surgery to knock out an opponent, or Basil will have to settle for victory by decision. Ukrainians all over the a cut above Pedras, so to doubt his success is not necessary.
What can you say about Pedraza? WBO heavyweight champion tactics prefers to build from the defense. This is a good, but unremarkable fighter. Surprise Basil’s nothing he can, but his belt without a fight and not give up. Probably the first half of the fight visually would be competitive, but as soon as Lomachenko add, Pedraza will have hard times.
In Ukraine the fight Vasyl Lomachenko-Jose Pedraza will show the TV channel “inter”. The broadcast begins December 9 at 5:00 Kyiv time.
