This was the scene in the ring last Saturday night on HBO Boxing After Dark, when Vasyl Lomachenko layed out Roman “Rocky” Martinez, to capture his second world title in as many weight classes.  Lomachenko won his second world title over the weekend in just his 7th professional fight.  The two time olympian was absolutely brilliant in the ring against the overmatched Martinez.  It was evident from the opening bell that Martinez could not match the skill, speed, or power of Lomachenko.  Lomachenko easily won every round in the fight, coming from angles never seen before, as he side stepped Martinez and popped him time and time again, from angles that could simply not be defended.  At one point, Lomachenko side stepped Martinez so quickly, that when he hit him with a punch, he was almost directly behind him.  The end would come in the 5th round, when Lomachenko threw a left uppercut that raised Martinez’ head, and banged him with a right hook.  The punch put Martinez down for the count, as Lomachenko cruised to an easy victory.
