The 2012 and 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist Vasyl Lomachenko, is at his fifth professional boxing fight having a record of 3-1-0 (but he has an amazing amateur record of 396-1) and he is ranked as the No.13 featherweight in the world. He fought three times last year losing to Orlando Salido (via split decision, Salido vs Lomachenko), but then he won the vacant WBO World featherweight title against Gary Russell Jr (=Lomachenko vs Russell Jr) and he successfully defended it once with Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo (=Lomachenko vs Piriyapinyo).
His opponent, Gamalier Rodriguez, has an official record of 25-2-3 (17 knockouts) and he entered as the No.34 in the same weight class. He suffered his last defeat in 2009 when he faced David Rodela, since then he has collected 17 victories and one draw. Lomachenko vs Rodriguez is valid for the WBO World featherweight title (Lomachenko’s second defense); undercard of Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Manny Pacquiao. Watch the video and rate this fight!

Lomachenko has master moves combined with excellent punching technic. A very good champion. He must have a good promoter to be placed on the undercard of Floyd/Manny.
i think his promoter is Bob Arum/Top Rank, he always fought in his card.
Lomachenko, Rigondeaux and Mayweather are three amazing athletes with a superbe technique but I usually don’t like their fights, their goal is just to control and throw a punch more than their opponents without being aggressive or find the ko.
this was the only fight worth watching on the whole card
I watched also Floyd-Manny of course but no the others. However, I fully agree with your opinion if I compare this with the main event that really worth nothing.
Agree pic44 – this was the “fight of the week”
Rodrgiuez came to win. He just got beat down to a point he mentally quit.
I cant wait to watch Lamachneko vs Waters.
I have watched Waters and though I like him – he hasn’t been the OMG fighter that the commentators spout him to be. He has 2 recent wins against X world champs but at lower weights and why Donaire tried to slug it out instead of box?
He is big for 126 and again I can’t wait for this fight.
Would be a HOLY SHT moment if Lamachneko stepped in for the June bout Waters has lined up without an opponent.
If not Lamachneko can have a rematch with Russel Jr.
He does want to solidify the division. Russel now has a belt.
Would like to how Russel would respond in a rematch.
