Via Hector Gonzalez – This story doesn’t begin with George Kambosos Jr. beat Teofimo Lopez or with Vasiliy Lomachenko losing the title to Teofimo Lopez. This story really started back in 2010 when Top Rank made a move to set boxers with multiple amateur records to win the world title in no time. It started with first-place boxer Guillermo Rigondeuax winning the interim WBC belt in just six fights. In 2014, Zou Shimings, another First Class fighter, won the WBO international flyweight championship in his first match. That same year, Vasiliy Lomachenko was jumped over the line and became the WBO’s mandatory featherweight after only 1 match. And in the same year Naoya Inoue, another Top Rated fighter, won the WBO flyweight title in just 6 fights.
To add to the story, the original fight for the WBO featherweight title vacated in 2014 was allegedly between Gary Russel jr and Orlando Salido, apparently Vasiliy Lomachenko jumped over Gary Russel Jr to win a hit on The WBO featherweight title was vacated even though Gary Russel Jr. is mandatory. What’s worse is that Lomachenko actually lost the fight for the vacant WBO belt and just two months later he was allowed another shot than was originally required at Gary Russel Jr. Perhaps it doesn’t matter that he goes on to beat Gary Russel Jr, which might make it seem as if he jumps over Russel, but that’s not the point, Lomachenko has been given opportunities unfair association that other boxers do not have.
Most of the so-called boxing fans know nothing about Francisco El Vandido Vargas. So, for those who don’t know, Vargas became an expert years before Lomachenko did. The old general is over 30 this year, losing only 3 or 2 times to his ex Miguel Berchelt and most recently at the age of 36 he lost a decisive match against Little Mike Tyson, Isaac The Pitbull Cruz. The sad part of the story is that El Vandido Vargas was a featherweight contender years before Lomachenko, what’s worse is that El Vandido Vargas didn’t win a title until his 24th bout, at the age of 24. 32. What is Vargas defeating Takashi Miura in the 2015 fight of the year. In 2016, Vargas once again had another game of the year when it came to a controversial draw against Orlando Salido. This is just one example of how Lomachenko can jump rope, having an unfair advantage in a waist shot.
Lomachenko once again got an instant title for the WBO Superweight belt. I say this with no disrespect to Rocky Martinez, but he was the weakest Super Junior belt holder at the time, and I say this to say it…. There’s a science to why Lomachenko lost to Teofimo Lopez and Orlando Salido, both physically strong boxers who can put Lomachenko in the back leg.. all of that to say in at that time, in 2016 there were two fighters Lomachenko could go up against, Miguel Berchelt and El Vandido Vargas, in fact after Lomachenko lost to Orlando Salido, he never fought another Mexican boxer.
Once again, Lomachenko got the belts in an instant at 135 just by moving up, his first match at 135 was against Jorge Linares for the WBA title, again, the first game. his first match at 135. His second fight at 135 was to win the WBO lightweight belt… and again, automatically gave another title to the empty WBC ahead of Luke Campbell.
This is where it starts to get interesting. Devin Haney is a mandatory WBC in 2018, which is more than three years, but he still hasn’t had a title fight. Let’s put this in context, over 3 years ago, Haney was forced and still hasn’t won a championship match, yet Lomachenko automatically gets championship matches, fighting one after another. . Worse still, Devin Haney actually had to petition the WBC, and in fact, he was denied and asked to wait in line behind Luke Campbell, which Lomachenko didn’t have to do. Furthermore, when Devin Haney was finally required, Lomachenko petitioned for the WBC franchise belt to automatically deny him a hit for the belt even though he was waiting in line, even though he was obligatory person.
For one reason or another, there is a story that Vasiliy Lomachenko automatically enjoys these titles. Some fans seem to believe that even though Vasiliy Lomachenko opted out of the rematch clause with Teofimo Lopez, he somehow has the right to a rematch and the same story is playing out now, some fans Graves seem to believe that Lomachenko, even though he lost all of his belts to Lopez, now automatically deserves another shot when there are other boxers in line.
You see, in the eyes of Top Rank, Lomachenko losing to Lopez is not a big deal because Teofimo Lopez, another boxer in Top Rank, is said to not lose to George Kambosos Jr., Lopez vacated. down 140 will be available all belts. again for Lomachenko. The problem is that Kambosos Jr. ruined the plan. Moreover, it also prevents the Lomachenko model from collecting belts from the weak opposition. No respect for Rocky Martinez, Jose Pedraza, or Jorge Linares, but none of them were ever top boxers in their respective weight classes. All three had been stopped before taking on Lomachenko and Luke Campbell had lost to Jorge Linares just a year earlier. In fact, Teofimo Lopez is the first undefeated boxer Lomachenko has faced since Nicholas Walters, and Walters had just fought to draw Jason Sosa in the previous match, a fighter who had been brutally KOed by Berchelt for four years. the match.
Devin Haney has been waiting in line for over three years now, he deserves the title. Also, give George Kambosos Jr his respect. He is an undefeated champion who unlike Lomachenko has actually beaten the previous undefeated champion.
Lomachenko lost his belt, simple as that. Now is the time of Kambosos and Haney.
