Vasyl Lomachenko and Gamalier Rodriguez

Leo Santa Cruz vs. Jose Cayetano

Labeled as the “Greatest Amateur in Boxing History” by Top rank Head Honcho, Bob Arum, the 27 year old Ukaranian - Vasyl Lomachenko will only be fighting his fifth fight in his professional career against a seasoned veteran, Gamalier Rodriguez. Rodriguez who hailed from Puerto Rico, will be bannering his 25-2-3, 17 KOs record against the younger boxer’s 3-1-0, 1 KO.


Lomachenko has been Ukraine’s pride for constantly bringing Gold Medals home since 2004 during his amateur years. He was also a 2012 London Summer Olympics Gold Medalist in a 132-pound weight category. The Kid who is also a southpaw like Manny Pacquiao will try to astound the crowd with a shocking win over Rodriguez. But the Puerto Rican will use his experience to foil Ukranian to keep the title.

Leo “El Terremoto” Santa Cruz who is still undefeated in 29 bouts is now eyeing to add Jose “El Tigre” Cayetano in his list of victims.

Boxing scouts and analysts describe Santa Cruz as an accurate and crushing puncher who has a clean record of 29-0 and has sent 13 of his last 15 opponents into sleep. His fellow Mexican and low-profiler Jose “Tigre” Cayetano is clearly the underdog in this bout. But his decent 17-3-0, 8 KOs record will keep his chances alive against the heavy hitter Santa Cruz.

The Lomachenko vs Rodriguez will be trading fists at exactly 9:00 am followed by Santa Cruz vs. Cayetano title bout. Stay online for the LIVE updates brought to you by The Summit Express.
