Well-known coach and boxing analyst Teddy Atlas commented on the victory of Ukrainian Vasily Lomachenko over Jemaine Ortiz from the USA.
“Sometimes boxers get old in a fight, especially when they fight a young and confident fighter. But Lomachenko shows his championship class towards the end of the fight. Good fight!
Awesome, tough, close fight. Lomachenko acted like a champion when it was most needed against a young and talented opponent. Experience, pressure and close range work put Lomachenko ahead at the end of the fight,” Teddy Atlas wrote on his Twitter page.
