Angeles, CA (August 5th, 2017) -Wunderkind

night to retain his WBO Superfeatherweight belt with a stoppage
over uber-tough Miguel Marriaga on the Top Rank promoted /
ESPN / ESPN Deportes televised main event at the Microsoft

landing some hard shots at Lomachenko, who mainly too the

went on to befuddle, out-think and out land the challenger
at every turn.
the fifth round, Marriaga, who had been down via a third round
left hook upstairs,
A clash of heads cut Lomachenko on the edge of his left eye,
after the latter landed a jarring uppercut, which bounced
Marriaga's head violently, cutting the champion.

after being reduced to a punching bag, prompting the challenger's
corner to call off the fight.
the win, Lomachenko moved to 9-1-0 with 7KO's, while Marriaga
fell to 25-3-0, with 21KO's.

shifty and very dangerous former WBA Super featherweight champion,
Costa Rican Bryan Vasquez in a ten round bout.
would win via hard-earned 95-95 and 96-94 twice.
