0

LOS ANGELES: Two-time Olympic boxing gold medalist Vasyl Lomachenko won a world title in just his third pro fight on Saturday with an impressive majority decision over Gary Russell. Ukraine’s Lomachenko improved to 2-1 with one knockout in his pro career as he captured the vacant World Boxing Organization featherweight world title with the victory over the previously unbeaten Russell. By claiming the belt, Lomachenko matched the record of Thailand’s Saensak Muangsurin in winning a world title in only his third bout as a professional.
