Lomanchenko destroys Martinez
Vasyl Lomanchenko (6-1, 3 KOs) continues to improve, as he earned his second world title by dethroning WBO junior lightweight titlist Roman Martinez (29-2-2, 17 KOs) on Saturday night.
In what was the main event on HBO from Madison Square Garden, Lomanchenko was simply too quick and slick for Martinez, as he counter punched well and landed at a high percentage. In the fifth round, Lomanchenko connected with a ruthless left-right combination that sent Martinez down hard and for the count.
The win gives Lomanchenko a title in his second weight class.
