No doubt about it Vasyl Lomachenko (1-0, 1 KO) amature and olympic trials look as impressive as Guillermo Rigondeaux's, and who knows, he may give him a run for his money in the future to come, but is it fair that he's getting a title shot in his second pro bout against Orlando Salido, even if he wins?

What makes this man any different from other olympic gold medalists past and present who actually grind there way through the pro ranks to get there shot?

Y'all are trippin. I guess I've been gone too long. Lomanchenko is a two time gold medalist. He stopped a very solid fighter in his first fight as a pro. He's going to be Salido as well. He's the real deal.

Rican please, he could very well be the real deal but after one pro fight you anointing this guy? Nah, I need to see more. I wasn't sold on Thurman but he's got me hooked now because he has improved each time out. I can't crown a dude who had success in the ams because this ain't the ams, this the big boy league

I think many of us here believe Lomanchenko can win but if Salido can weather the early on slaught then Vasyl will be in trouble most likely. He still don't deserve no title shot I'm his 2nd fight, IDGAF what you say. He's not that's good and you know it, to deserve that...and Rigo beats his ass everyday of the week and 3x on Sunday. I already see fear in him and his team in regards to a fight with Rigo

I've been sold on Thurman. I don't need to see a guy 20 times before I know he has skills or not. Again...he fought 6 fights without headgear in the WSB. His pro debut under toprank was his 7th without a headgear. He is a 2 time gold medalist. They are rare in boxing. He ha aligned himself with a powerful promoter. it doesn't matter if we think he is ready or not...he's getting his shot. When he beats Salido easily come back and talk to me.

Maaybe that's the problem, too many gimme's being handed out to those who haven't earned it. I'll let you pom pom and pull your skirt up for the guy, I'm not built like that.

Don't be so quick to write Salido off, I expect more from someone who calls them self a professor. Lomanchenko isn't as good as you make him out to be. This ain't the Olympics and who the fuck follows that WSB shit? I stated that he could beat Salido but if that fight goes into the later rounds it could interesting. I guess you were impressed with his pro debut, and I mean his REAL pro debut?

Let's say he does win, I think GRJ is a mandatory for that belt and another one as well, I don't even think he could beat Gary. When he does something of substance to warrant this cheer leading then you can come back and talk to me
