Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko had the first lightweight fight with Jorge Linares from Venezuela in NY. The right hand is working and landing regularly, and it could be an early night for Barrera if he doesn't defend against it. If Barrera had some more gas in the tank, he probably could have hurt Adames. His power shots came from his right hand, but he was still fluid and smooth in his southpaw stance. "I just want to stay busy and get a title shot". Lomachenko shook his head confidently as he came back to his corner, as if to assure thousands of Ukrainian fans in the building that he was OK. "After this fight, we know now that he's a fighter". That win was a decision against the outmatched Gary Russell Jr.
"Every fight in my life is important because the man standing across from me is there to beat me", he said. Whilst, Lomachenko has broken more heart than he's had to show so far, however, he did fight to the end against Orlando Salido in only his 2nd Pro contest.
A ferocious flurry of blows in the 10th, which concluded with a thudding left to the body that sent Linares to the canvas, was enough to convinced referee Ricky Gonzalez to award Lomachenko victory by technical knockout. This was not only Linares' fourth title defence at 135 lbs but also Lomachenko's debut in this division, a weight class in which he first started out as an ammeter.

The three at the back system was used to counter the similar formation used by West Ham who rely heavily on width to get forward. It was competitive", said Mourinho. "I don't think they [United's players] grasp the importance of these games".
According to CompuBox punch statistics, Lomachenko landed 213 of 627 punches (34 percent) and Martirosyan and Linares connected on 207 of 739 (28 percent).
By then, Linares' nose was bleeding.
Linares' comeback is the type that can strengthen one's confidence.
Spanish Grand Prix Qualifying: Hamilton on POLE in Mercedes front row
His team-mate Brendon Hartley was not able to qualify as the team was unable to fix his auto in time following his crash in FP3. But the German lost out by 0.132secs on this track that exposes the aerodynamic qualities of a vehicle like few others.
Lomachenko had been on top before Linares countered with a stiff right in the sixth, which left the Ukraine fighter needing a round to recover. Lomachenko took it well and fired punches back at Linares. Lomachenko was focusing on that cut throughout the remainder of the eighth round as momentum swung back in his favor. "He fought a much bigger guy who knows how to fight and wasn't going to quit".
Venezuelan Linares, who had vowed to suss out 'Loma's timing before committing to any power shots, was the aggressor but largely inaccurate in a tentative opener: Lomachenko, ever-fluid, kept his head in perpetual motion and out of the line of fire, rendering it hard for Linares to detonate with anything significant.
Loma scored a sneaky, ideal left hand to the body in that 10th and final round.
