Review: 2014-11-23, disappointing fight between Vasyl Lomachenko and Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo: it gets two stars. The 2012 and 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist Vasyl Lomachenko, is at his fourth professional boxing fight having a record of 2-1-0 (but he has an amazing amateur record of 396-1) and he is ranked as the No.15 featherweight in the world; he has fought twice in 2014 losing to Orlando Salido (via split decision Salido vs Lomachenko) but then he beat Gary Russell Jr in a fight valid for the vacant Wbo Fw title (=Lomachenko vs Russell Jr).
His opponent, Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo, has an official record of 52-1-0 (33 knockouts) and he entered as the No.42 in the same weight class, he suffered his only loss in 2012 when he faced then-undefeated Chris John (4-stars-fight John vs Piriyapinyo), since the he has won eight consecutive bouts. Lomachenko vs Piriyapinyo is valid for the WBO World featherweight title (Lomachenko’s first defense); undercard of Manny Pacquiao vs Chris Algieri. Watch the video and rate this fight!
