Highlights! Lomachenko Scores Face-Plant KO In Dominant Title Defense

As boxing’s pound-for-pound best, reigning WBA (Super) and WBO lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (13-1, 10 KO) needed to dominate last night (Fri., April 12, 2019) live on ESPN+ from inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Luckily for the champ, he was able to put a stop to English veteran Anthony Crolla (34-7-3, 13 KO) via fourth-round knockout.

In typical “Matrix” fashion, Lomachenko took his time in the opening rounds to gauge Crolla’s movements with feints and pressure. Once he downloaded enough information Lomachenko piled on vicious combinations in Round 3 that put Crolla against the ropes and forced a referee break for a technical knockdown.

In Round 4, Lomechenko continue to pile on the offense. A few combinations and a body shot backed Crolla towards the corner. Lomachenko then landed a left hand followed by a brutal right hook on the side of the head that shut Crolla off and sent the Englishman into a faceplant on the canvas.

Check out the memorable fourth-round finish below along with some more action:

With this win, Lomachenko proves yet again that he’s the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world. The 31-year-old lightweight finally looked healthy after shoulder surgery last year and it showed in his performance against Crolla. “Matrix” is simply dominating the competition at every turn so it may be time to pit Lomachenko against WBC and IBF lightweight champion Mikey Garcia.

Neil Magny hopes a dominant win at UFC 215 will earn him a welterweight title shot

Magny faces former champ Rafael dos Anjos at Edmonton’s UFC 215 on September 9th.

Following months of recovery from back and neck injuries, it’s been a slow 2017 for welterweight contender Neil Magny. UFC 215 marks his first fight of the year, and it won’t be an easy one: he faces former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, who kicked off his 170 pound run with a dominating win over Tarec Saffiedine.

But Magny isn’t worried about how tough dos Anjos is. Rather, he’s excited that he’s been given an opponent that could potentially leap frog him right into a title shot if he puts on a great fight.

“I feel great for a potential title shot after this win,” Magny said during an interview with MMA Junkie at the UFC 215 media day. “The biggest thing is to focus on beating dos Anjos first, but I’m pretty sure a title shot is within reach with an impressive performance against dos Anjos.”

Magny was in high demand during his months on the sidelines, getting called out by several rising stars in the welterweight division.

“I was like man, I haven’t fought in six months, and you guys have the biggest wins of your careers and the first thing you bring up is me!” he said. “On the other side of it, it made me feel pretty good knowing I had some job security once I got cleared by a doctor.”

Cleared and ready to go, Magny is hoping to build on the momentum he gained off an insane 2015 with five fights, a run that has him sitting at 6-2 over his last 8. Considering Rafael dos Anjos was being considered as Tyron Woodley’s UFC 214 opponent if Demian Maia wasn’t ready, he’d be a great name to add to his list of victims, one that’s already full of guys like Hendricks, Lombard, and Gastelum.
