The fight is finally happening this weekend. Two of the greatest amatuer boxers in history, and they have carried their success into the professional ranks. I'm predicting a technical fight with incredible skill, but it probably won't excite the casual fan. I'm picking Rigondeaux by unanimous decision.

Vasyl Lomachenko is simply an incredible athlete. The Ukranian fighter is a two time Olympic gold medalist, with an amateur record of 396-1. He went pro in 2013, lost his second pro fight to crafty veteran Orlando Salido, and won a world title in his 3rd fight by defeating Gary Russell, Jr. In his 7th fight, he moved up in weight and became a two division champion. He’s an amazing technician, with more of a vicious side than some of his other technical counterparts (like Rigondeaux) - it’s been 3 years since anyone went the distance with him. He’s amazing, and only seems to be getting better.

Guillermo Rigondeaux has an amateur career almost as flashy as Lomachenko’s - a 475-12 record, and his own pair of Olympic gold medals. Cuba’s Rigondeaux turned pro in 2009. His highest profile fight to date was his 2013 showdown with Nonito Donaire. Donaire came into that fight red hot, and Rigondeaux took him apart. But what should have been a career making performance actually became a huge setback, as fighters did not want to face him, and promoters did not want to feature him. Since then, Rigondeaux has been looking every bit the technical marvel, but he’s not had the chance to show it off consistently against top level opposition. He’s technically not coming in off a win because his last fight featured a fight-ending shot that inadvertently landed after the bell, so was ruled a No Contest.

LMAO why did each guy fight 4/500 amateur fights before turning pro?

 

 

That's like Jon Jones staying on the Professional MMA amateur circuit these past 8 years and demolishing complete cans.

Olympic medals, and nothing more.

You can't go pro and fight in the Olympics anymore.

Hope the fact that Loma is dragging Rigo up 2 weight divisions isn't a big factor in what should be one of the most technically sound fights in a long time.

 

Would rather see Salido beat up Loma, again. Salido fights are can't miss

Add one more Cuban to the quit on the stool list.
