    Lomachenko Heading To 135 in 2018, Will Target More Gold

    By Miguel Rivera

    This coming Saturday night, Vasyl Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KOs) may take part in his final super featherweight encounter.

    According to his promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank, the Ukrainian boxer has already indicated to him that he intends to move up to the lightweight limit of 135-pounds to pursue more world titles
    - with lucrative names like Jorge Linares, Robert Easter and Mikey Garcia at the weight.

    "Yes, he is indeed [going up to lightweight]. Lomachenko said that next year he will be fighting at 135 pounds," said Arum said to ESPN Deportes.

    This Saturday night at The Theater in Madison Square Garden in New York City, Lomachenko will defend his WBO super featherweight crown against Guillermo Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs), who holds the WBA title at 122-pounds and is moving up by two weight divisions to take the fight. This will be Lomachenko's third defense of that title in 2017 and fourth overall.

    This will be Lomachenko's first fight in the venue since his one-punch fifth-round knockout victory of three-time WBO junior lightweight champion Roman "Rocky" Martinez on June 11, 2016 to claim Martinez's title.

    The Martinez victory not only made Lomachenko a two-division world champion, but he once again he broke a record doing it, winning world title No. 2 in a record least amount of fights -- seven.

    Lomachenko captured his first world title -- the vacant WBO featherweight title -- winning a scintillating majority decision over the previously unbeaten and future world champion Gary Russell Jr. on June 21, 2014. It remains the only blemish on Russell's record.

    The win over Russell was Lomachenko's third professional bout, tying him with Thailand's Saensak Muangsurin for fewest fights to win a world title. Muangsurin won a junior welterweight title in 1975, also in his third professional fight.

    Lomachenko successfully defended the WBO featherweight title three times during his reign before vacating it to challenge Martinez in 2016.

    The WBO championship at lightweight is currently vacant, after Terry Flanagan of Manchester dropped the belt to move up to junior welterweight.

    Vasyl Lomachenko To Go on a World Tour in 2018?
    By Steve Kim

    This weekend from the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, WBO super featherweight titlist Vasyl Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KOs) faces Guillermo Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs) in an unprecedented battle of two-time Olympic gold medalists that will be televised on ESPN.

    If Lomachenko should come out victorious, what's in store for the gifted southpaw in 2018?

    "You can not believe the proposals that I have from all over the world who want a Lomachenko fight," said his promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank, to BoxingScene.com. "I mean from Asia, to Europe to the Middle East, everybody wants Lomachenko. Maybe we'll have him do his next fight in Australia, England or the Middle East because ESPN has shown a great willingness to do fights from outside the country. And then bring him back here."

    Lomachenko has already captured featherweight and super featherweight titles and Arum added - "I would say by the end of the year he'll be challenging for a world lightweight title."

    As for how many times he'll perform in 2018, Arum explained," Lomachenko will fight in 2018 at least three times. He's going in December this year and then three more times. I said to Lomachenko four times a year but we're not on a calendar year."

    This will be Lomachenko's first fight in the venue since his one-punch fifth-round knockout victory of three-time WBO junior lightweight champion Roman "Rocky" Martinez on June 11, 2016 to claim Martinez's title.

    The Martinez victory not only made Lomachenko a two-division world champion, but he once again he broke a record doing it, winning world title No. 2 in a record least amount of fights -- seven.

    Lomachenko captured his first world title -- the vacant WBO featherweight title -- winning a scintillating majority decision over the previously unbeaten and future world champion Gary Russell Jr. on June 21, 2014. It remains the only blemish on Russell's record.

    Rigondeaux: What Happened to Brook, Khan Won't Happen to Me
    By Keith Idec

    NEW YORK – Guillermo Rigondeaux thinks too much has been made about him moving up two weight classes to challenge Vasyl Lomachenko.

    The unbeaten Cuban southpaw has never weighed in at more than 125½ pounds for any of his 18 professional bouts, but will battle Lomachenko at the super featherweight limit of 130 pounds Saturday night. The long-reigning WBA super bantamweight champion considers skill more important than weight, though, and the two-time Olympic gold medalist feels he has been underestimated entering their 12-round title fight in The Theater at Madison Square Garden.

    “[Weight] has nothing to do with it,” Rigondeaux said through a translator before an open workout Wednesday at Mendez Boxing Gym. “When there’s quality, you don’t need size or anything else.”

    Based on their face-to-face meetings, Rigondeaux doesn’t think Lomachenko is all that much bigger than him.

    Ukraine’s Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KOs), who began his professional career at featherweight (126 pounds) four years ago, is listed at 5-feet-6. Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs, 1 NC), who has been almost exclusively a super bantamweight (122) since he turned pro eight years ago, is listed at 5-feet-4.

    There is a clause in their contracts that prohibits either fighter from weighing more than 138 pounds during a second-day weigh-in Saturday morning. Rigondeaux refused to answer Wednesday when asked how much he expects to weigh at the official weigh-in Friday afternoon, at the second-day weigh-in or when he enters the ring Saturday night.

    “More weight than what they think and less than what they really imagine,” Rigondeaux said. “Less than 140 and more than 122. You’ll see at the weigh-in.”

    Regardless, Rigondeaux is confident he’ll fare far better than other boxers who’ve moved up two weight classes for big fights in recent years.

    “What happened with Brook and what happened with Amir Khan,” Rigondeaux said, “it’s gonna be different because I’m gonna win.”

    Rigondeaux referenced England’s Kell Brook, who was stopped by Gennady Golovkin in the fifth round when Brook moved up from welterweight for a middleweight title fight in September 2016 in London. England’s Khan, another welterweight, also got knocked out by Canelo Alvarez in the sixth round when he moved up for their middleweight title fight in May 2016 in Las Vegas.

    ESPN will televise the bout between Lomachenko, 29, and Rigondeaux, 37, as the main event of a four-fight telecast set to start Saturday night at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST.

    Caribe Sues Roc Nation Over Lomachenko-Rigondeaux Fight

    According to numerous reports, Miami-based Caribe Promotions has sued Roc Nation Sports in Manhattan Supreme Court for allegedly freezing them out of Saturday's fight between two Olympic gold medalists Guillermo Rigondeaux and Vasyl Lomachenko, which takes place at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The fight is being televised as the main event on ESPN.

    Caribe, who became Rigondeaux’s lead promoter in 2009, cut a co-promotional deal with Roc Nation in November of 2015.

    According to the court documents, Roc Nation cut a deal for Saturday's fight with Lomachenko's promoter, Top Rank, without telling Caribe.

    Caribe also claim in the lawsuit papers that Roc Nation dropped their name from promotional materials and refused to give them tickets to the event or approve their attendance at press conferences.

    According to Caribe’s Vice President Luis Fonseca, the freeze out is in response to his refusal to pay for $108,000 in expenses related to another fight in June - when Rigondeaux stopped Moises Flores in the first round on the Andre Ward vs. Sergey Kovalev rematch at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The fight was later changed to a no-decision after it was determined that Flores as hit after the bell.

    Fonseca acknowledges the $108K amount, but says he was never warned about the costs. Caribe is asking the judge to force Roc Nation to share promotional perks for Saturday’s bout.

    Caribe claim that it will suffer "disastrous" financial consequences if it's brand name is not featured prominently in the fight.

    "Denying Caribe the benefit of association with its marquee fighter in this historic bout cannot be remedied by money damages," Fonseca said in an affidavit.

    The suit indicates that the two promoters are already in arbitration regarding a breach of their agreement. Caribe says it sued because the arbitration will not be resolved before the fight. The suit seeks an emergency court order, allowing Caribe to act as co-promoter of the event.

    ESPN Confirms Teddy Atlas Won't Work Loma-Rigo Broadcast
    By Keith Idec

    Longtime ESPN boxing analyst Teddy Atlas won’t work the cable network’s telecast Saturday night of the highly anticipated Vasyl Lomachenko-Guillermo Rigondeaux fight.

    Yahoo! Sports’ Chris Mannix reported Wednesday that the outspoken Atlas, a former trainer who has worked ESPN boxing broadcasts for nearly 20 years, won’t take his usual ringside seat alongside blow-by-blow announcer Joe Tessitore in The Theater at Madison Square Garden. The move comes less than month after Atlas spent a significant portion of an ESPN broadcast verbally sparring against Mark Kriegel, a former newspaper columnist and new member of the network’s announcing team.

    That distracting dynamic drew criticism from television and radio columnists and fans following the November 11 broadcast from Fresno, California.

    It is not known if the arguing between the always-animated Atlas and Kriegel had anything to do with Atlas’ removal from the Lomachenko-Rigondeaux broadcast or if it’s a permanent move. Stephanie Druley, an ESPN senior vice president for event and studio production, did tell Mannix that Staten Island’s Atlas, 61, has provided a feature piece for Saturday’s telecast and will continue to contribute to the network’s boxing coverage.


    “Teddy’s expertise and knowledge of boxing is unparalleled and he will continue to be part of our boxing coverage,” Druley said. “As we embark upon a new approach with our boxing coverage, we are also going to utilize different talent lineups.”

    She did not confirm the team that’ll work Saturday’s telecast.

    The four-fight telecast is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST. In addition to the 12-round, 130-pound title bout between Ukraine’s Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KOs) and Cuba’s Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs, 1 NC), it’ll include fights featuring 2016 Olympic silver medalist Shakur Stevenson (3-0, 1 KO), a featherweight from Newark, New Jersey, Irish featherweight prospect Michael Conlan (4-0, 4 KOs) and Puerto Rican super featherweight contender Christopher Diaz (21-0, 13 KOs).
