Boxing is getting weak!! 3 fights in the game and now you’re a champ, beating another guy who really never fought tough competition. Instead of two top level pros fighting for a boxing legacy, we basically saw two amatuer stars fight for a belt. Nonetheless dominate win for Lomachenko. Money and greed is destroying the house the legends of the sport built.Posted June 25, 2014 9:47 pm
Loma didn’t WIN 11 rounds. Go take a MATH class. Russell out worked him for a few rounds….which is MORE than ONE.Posted June 25, 2014 9:23 pm
“BoxtrAnus you picked Russell to win not Lomachenko so stop trying to claim otherwise. Loser.”-Nope. Go take you a CURRENT EVENTS class like I told TARK. I WISELY switched MY pick and took Lomachenko. And that made ME a WINNER!!Posted June 25, 2014 9:22 pm
“Really? Please tell us all how that works”-Its called not standing UP for yourself NUMBSKULL. IF you’re not in the game then you’re SITTING on the SIDELINES. OR sitting on the toilet to PISS like a BTICH.Posted June 25, 2014 9:20 pm
Boxtra made a post talking about how brave he was in picking Russell to win… and said “Where’s TARK, he has no prediction.”
I posted immediately after Boxtra and picked Lomachenko complete with analysis.. I expected the fight to be a lot closer and Loma to win.. As it was he won 11 rounds and the judges tried their level best to rob him — but that was impossible given the action in the ring.
The judge who voted a draw should be beaten with a shovel … and left for dead
Loma really picked his game up from the Salido robbery. He knew he needed to dominate.Posted June 25, 2014 3:15 pm

Olympic gold does trump Golden Gloves, that no secret. Have nice day!Posted June 24, 2014 1:20 am
I made a prediction and kicked your ass Boxtra… You said Russell was going to KO Lomachenko or beat him by clear decision… How in the world was that going to happen?
You were out to lunch…
I gave you my pick and analysis… Lomachenko was challenging himself because he knew he could accomplish something extraordinary. Winning a world title in his 2nd or 3rd pro fight..
Now he shares the world record but Maungsurin beat a chump for his 3rd win… And he was a pro fighter for a long time … but in Thai Boxing, which is only about 3 X as tough to train for as Boxing.Posted June 24, 2014 12:52 am
“Olympic gold trumps Golden Gloves gold” and Vasly is a champ after 3 fights?
And like I SAID. When you don’t make a prediction that’s similar to sitting down to PISS. SO don’t talk to ME you SISSY.Posted June 23, 2014 9:49 pm
“Yeah, so you “changed” your pick and made it known AFTER the fight was over??”-Nope. Go take a READING class. I changed it BEFORE the Fight was over and I was CORRECT. I am the GREATEST Fight Prophet ever born!!!!!Posted June 23, 2014 9:48 pm

I haven’t seen Lomachenko much so I thought Russell will win but Lomachenko surprise me. He’s a very very exciting fighter to watch. I can’t wait to see him again. I hope he isn’t tied up with Showtime cause I would love to see him fight Rigo, Mikey, or Donaire who fight for HBO. I can see a lot of good fights ahead for this kid.Posted June 23, 2014 9:58 am

lionhard/Sredmond, “The cleaner, crisper punching was done by Loma – without question, but Russell ocassionally landed through EACH round while trying HARDER. I SEE nothing wrong with the DRAW …”
“Russell acted as though he knew he lost during the ring interview. So, he SHOULD & WOULD know better than anyone else, cuz he WAS actually in there. But had he not given that interview….I’d have seen a draw.”
What a BLIND IDIOT!!!
Lomachenko landed 100 more punches and made Russell miss 90% of his punches with his masterful defensive skills.. He also landed the much harder punches and pounded Russell with a masterful offense.Posted June 23, 2014 4:51 am

Satan-Your name says it ALL. YOU are SCRUB poster who changes his name like the WIND. I only post under ONE name. Boxtradamus. I’m SO GREAT that I blew half the site away with the TRUTH. No one could retaliate on ME enough because I am CORRECT too much. SO they fled……YOU are probably one of those posters….the FACT is that I changed and took the eventual WINNER and you’re frustrated with MY GREATNESS. MY HONESTY, INTERGRITY, and HONOR all remain intact because I HONESTLY and HONORABLY retracted MY pick of Russell and took the more SKILLED Fighter. There’s HONOR in that. And the INTERGRITY shows in MY record because I took the WINNER yet again. YOU are a COWARD who made NO pick. SO learn how not sit down when you take a PISS. They call that being a SISSY.Posted June 22, 2014 10:48 pm

It does not really matter though the reality speaks for itself. Turn on the TV come football season and look at the roster and the player stats. I stand 6’2 and weight 269lbs so I speak of what I know.. Not just from observation.Posted June 22, 2014 10:00 pm
I agree with you screwy louiePosted June 22, 2014 9:54 pm
I didn’t see this or any of last evenings bouts, seems from everything I have read Lomanchenko won clearly (Kudos) Russell was
I guess Judge Ciampo counted all of Russell’s sound effect every time he threw a punch as a hit. All Russell had to do was make it a close fight and he would have been handed the decision – Lomencheko had to win convincingly to eke out a win. Decisions in boxing stink because of incompetent judges or judges favoring the fighter who they know the promoter wants to see win because he has the bigger gate potential.Posted June 22, 2014 9:01 pm
HatersBeWare has a point about boxing historically being a sport of the poor though. The Irish, Italians and Jews in the US didn’t box in the same numbers when they got on. The blacks and Mexicans, Latinos started to dominate. Blacks are doing better in other fields/sports now so don’t need to box in the same numbers. There are easier ways to make a living. The Eastern European boxers are now on the pro scene. They’re tough, hungry and determined with a strong desire to succeed. And…Vasyl Lomachenko beat Gary Russell all night long…Posted June 22, 2014 8:19 pm
What is up Haters B ware your therory may explain the light heavyweights to heavy weights. However there is definatly no featherweights that play in the NBA or NFl not even place kickers so your excuse realy has no juice. I am not beatPosted June 22, 2014 8:03 pm

Gary Russell was the PUPIL, got taken to school and received a boxing lesson from a Master. Very good performance from Lomachenko.Posted June 22, 2014 7:50 pm
There is a lot of racist talk here, and the comments are not rooted in any facts. The fact of the matter is that boxing is the sport of the poor, and disenfranchised- It is a very,very,very difficult sport. Boxing is also a sport that you have to start as a child and work at from a very young age to build up the reflexes and muscle synapse.
The best of the best African Americans athletes no longer need to box- they control NFL Football, NBA Basketball, College Football, College Basketball- You are telling me that if Lebron James, or Shaq, or any number of the Pro football player that are now the biggest and baddest at their sport, if they had started training at boxing as children that they could be beat by anyone out there from Europe. Any of you euro racist trash- want to test your theory that African Americans are over rated bring you self over here to america and speak those word to an african american’s face.Posted June 22, 2014 7:50 pm
You don’t win 2 Olympic Gold Medals in different weight categories by the age of 24 and run up a record of 396-1 by being a scrub…Posted June 22, 2014 7:39 pm
Lomachenko was the bigger, better, stronger and tougher fighter in every way in there with Russell. Loma looked like the guy with all the relevant pro experience against an amateur right from the start. 116-112 was kinda generous if anything and it should have been a CLEAR UD. WBO Champ and if Loma keeps progressing, that’s just the start.Posted June 22, 2014 7:36 pm
“Hopelessly over-matched”(??). Was drinking bourbon part of writing this article?? Lomachenko stayed away from Russell so often you’d think Russell had a disease. Loma definitely had the better CRISPER landed punching, but he did so sporadically, NEVER “at will” where you’d easily come to the conclusion he’s piling on the points. Russell turned out to be the aggressor who ALSO landed sporadically throughout the fight. Again, The cleaner, crisper punching was done by Loma – without question, but Russell ocassionally landed through EACH round while trying HARDER. I SEE nothing wrong with the DRAW.
But, I would have to concede: Russell acted as though he knew he lost during the ring interview. So, he SHOULD & WOULD know better than anyone else, cuz he WAS actually in there. But had he not given that interview….I’d have seen a draw. He’s a truly humble dude, maybe too laid back (body language wise) for the outcome when the final bell had rung! And by the way, punch stats can be TERRIBLY misleading – I dont rely on that – especially when u have eyes available.Posted June 22, 2014 7:20 pm

“The person that scored 114-114 should be held accountable. Boxers work to hard to have their future placed in the hands of people that have no business judging a prize fight.” – Dick Tiger is exactly correct. The judge who “scored” it 114-114 was Lisa Giampa, who only got the job because her dad is Chuck Giampa a longtime judge. Lisa Giampa needs to be banned. Fight wasn’t even close so she is either corrupt or incompetent, period.Posted June 22, 2014 2:55 pm

VERY GOOD WIN for Lomachenko, who looked at what went wrong with Salido and he made the adjustments for Russell.
This was a good match up and stylistically didn’t disappoint.
I liked the fact Lomachenko worked the body whenever he git an opportunity and then switched to the head. Russell had fast hands and fast flurries, but they are useless if there is no strategy or thinking as to where to place them and when and also why you are targeting those areas.
Lomachenko used good footwork to work his way round Russell and I think his footwork to get in and out and round the side coupled with his body work was the difference. Russell couldn’t or didn’t want to adjust. I think Russell must have trained real hard (but not smart) as he took so many decent body shots, but he never once tried to cover up, drop his forearm to catch the punches or even try to tie Vasyl up.
I would prefer fighters to get good seasoning fighting guys who will push you in different areas, rather than rack up win after win over patsy after patsy.
Vasyl learned a bitter lesson in the art of infighting and close quarters exchanging and he was determined to keep the pace of the fight high and to have Russell reaching and eventually winging.
I would like to see Lomachenko vs WBA champ Axeman Walters (who I think is Top Rank). I think Walters’ only advantage is he seems to be a big puncher, but would be outmatched in all other areas, but it would be a good match up.
Russell needs to work on his footwork. He’s static and I wish he would use his jab more effectively. Sometimes one jab is more effective than a directionless flurry and it can set up so many more follow up punches.
Russell has a lot to learn, but has heart and can come back stronger, knowing he went 12 tough rounds.Posted June 22, 2014 1:05 pm
This cat named Vasyl is good. Real good. Could be why he won a gold medal, heh? I think he won a UD in this fight. The judge scoring a draw must have been counting the grunts Russel would do every time he threw a punch, missing or not, judge must have been confused. Toss that judge out or send him/her back to judging school. Vasyl is the real deal.Posted June 22, 2014 12:29 pm

GREAT performance from Lomachenko. SKILLS is the most important factor in Boxing and I THANK him for helping ME to make MY point.Posted June 22, 2014 11:53 am
Lomachenko was nothing short of spectacular. He looked like the seasoned professional. Speed, crisp clean shots. Beautiful ring generalship. He dominated like I thought he would. I had picked him to win this fight because he is a special talent. You could see it in the Salido fight. Russell Jr. looked more like the amateur even though he showed his skills in the fight. Lomachenko was simply better in all areas. His jab and right hook to both the head and body were excellent. His jab landed right on the button. His head movement was beautiful as he he gave different angles. He would slip to the left and counter than slip to the right and counter. Those body shots were great. He clinched effortlessly when he felt the need. When he stepped inside and got his punches off, he was always aware of Russell’s right hook counter. Lomachenko was a pleasure to see. Having come in with only to professional fights on his record and performing like he did shows you why elite amateur experience helps a lot. This kid will be one of the great ones. Look for this kid to do some big, big things. Russell did well also, but he didn’t have the true fighting experience fighting D level fighters. He will be very good also if he stays confident and focused. Lomachenko juts may very well be another Manny Pacquiao if that is even possible.Posted June 22, 2014 11:31 am
The person that scored 114-114 should be held accountable. Boxers work to hard to have their future placed in the hands of people that have no business judging a prize fight.Posted June 22, 2014 11:08 am
Russel fought well but Lomanchenko fought better, worked the body and head up and down all night. Russels speed was a nonfactor and was negated by Lamanchenko was opening and closing the distance all night long. Lomanchenko learned alot from that Salido fight. Russle is still a fast fighter but had not fought anyone like this coming up in the ranks. The judge who had this a draw needs to be out of boxing, no where near a draw.Posted June 22, 2014 11:06 am
Its obvious Lomachenko has what it takes to be a top fighter, but although his priorities were to win a belt, those priorities need to be evaluated and perhaps change a bit. He should now concentrate on gaining some professional experience, as he still has flaws that smart opponents can take advantage of.
As for the referee that saw the fight a draw, he needs to be investigated by the boxing commission…of course; we know that will never happen. These corrupt judges will continue judging fights and making the same bad decisions.Posted June 22, 2014 10:51 am

Congratulations to the champion. Good performance from both boxers , high level competition. 400 amateur fights is not a waste of time as a lot of people think. Both fighters drain themselves to the limit and that is how you get an experience.Posted June 22, 2014 9:56 am
Belly, you hit the nail on the head with Vysotsky. I actually mentioned him in an article on the heavyweights some time ago as the only man to have beaten Teofilo Stevenson in his prime. He beat him twice, the second time by KO and KDed him in each fight. Stevenson developed a real fear and complex against Vysotsky who was practically a light-heavy in today’s money.
i dont think that is sredmond – his racism is much more subtle and implied. but yeah its sad the trolls always turned these threads into a racial flamewar.
thank goodness the fighters from eastern Europe can all turn pro for the last 20 years, imagine if they were allowed to turn pro back in the 70’s, Igor Visotsky would have been the heavyweight champion.Posted June 22, 2014 9:24 am
Wow Sredmond, and Drejo what is up with the Racial comments.Posted June 22, 2014 8:50 am
Congratulations Vasyl ! Great performance , despite a valiant effort by one ” judge ” to torpedo Vasyl’s performance . He’s probably a Russian , or one of the posters , who claimed Russel was going to beat Vasyl . Great champions , are made by overcoming great adversities ( as in Wlad Klitchko ) , and the former setback , will only make Vasyl better on the way to becoming a great champion !Posted June 22, 2014 8:16 am
Wow! What’s with all the race comments… Boxers are simply that, who care’s about their race smh.. The better man won tonight, bottom line.. I like russell, an predicted he would get a split decision before the fight but I was wrong.. props to chenko!!! Can only go UP from here… Would love to see him against the casual fans nightmare\ Best pure boxer in the sport imo RIGO!!!Posted June 22, 2014 8:11 am
If Eastern European boxers could fight professionally back in the 50’s, right now we wouldn’t be able to country more than 15 African- American champions in history just like in kickboxing, olympic wrestling and MMA. African-Americans are grossly overrated and the most overprotected boxers in the world. Period.Posted June 22, 2014 8:01 am
That doesnt even sound like sredmond ……. Gary fought well did he is best … He just hasnt fought the best competition going round ….Posted June 22, 2014 7:18 am
I think the 116-112 scorecards were a little kind to Russell let alone a draw. Lomachenko was pure class I would go as far as to far p4p list. The loss against salido means nothing the guy has been a serial cheat throughtout his career and came in several pounds over which was the difference in that fight.Posted June 22, 2014 6:48 am
