Vasyl Lomachenko was the last on the list in USA fight night. He was defending his WBO title in a battle against Jason Sosa. From the start it was obvious that Ukrainian is ahead of his opponent. The speed of feet and punches by Lomachenko were so fast that Sosa had really hard time defending, constantly taking the hits. At the same time, Sosa showed himself focused and strong, as Lomachenko’s pressure is not easy to bear. American and his team made it to 9th round. Sosa’s eye became swollen, thus he could not continue the fight. His team refused to continue after 9th round.
