What can be said about Vasyl Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KO’s)?  Is he the perfect boxer? The answer is yes, especially after he took apart Miguel Marriaga (25-3, 21 KO’s) and embarrassed him this past Saturday night.  It was an unbelievable performance from start to finish, and I believe that Lomachenko is the hardest man in boxing to defeat.  From start to finish, he was toying with Marriaga, hitting him from all angles with every kind of punch imaginable.  In the first 3 rounds, Lomachenko was zooming in and out of punching range, creating all kinds of angles and just tapping Marriaga.

After the 3rd round, Lomachenko started punching a bit harder.  It didn’t really matter if he exposed himself defensively, because its not like Marriaga could hit him anyway.  Lomachenko knocked Marriaga down in the third with a perfect straight left while marriaga was off balance.  In the 6th round, Lomachenko actually turned around and walked straight into the corner and begged Marriaga to come at him.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a boxer do that before.  Lomachenko continued to come forward and pressure Marriaga after that, and in the 7th round he knocked him down again.  Between rounds 7 and 8, Marriaga’s corner informed the referee that Marriaga no longer wanted to continue.  There was no point really, as Marriaga lost every second of this fight in embarrassing fashion.  There was absolutely no way that Marriaga had any chance to do anything meaningful in this fight, so there was really no point to continue.
