LiL Gary looked drained at the weight ins. should move up to 135 or 140.

Lomachenko is a very promising young fighter that quite honestly could be the future of the sport. If Lomachenko can take all of his amazing attribute's and put them together this Saturday, he may just end up being the new WBO Featherweight Champion.

Odds have been slowly shortening on two-time Olympic gold medalist Vasyl Lomachenko all week for tonight’s showdown against unbeaten 2008 U.S. Olympian Gary Russell Jr. tonight at the StubHub Center and televised on Showtime. The Top Rank-promoted Ukrainian star is currently a -190 favorite against Golden Boy fighter Russell, who is at +165. The over/under is 9.5 rounds with “over” at -370, the “under” is +310.

Gary fought a very competitive fight, people saying he looked terrible don't know boxing. Both boxers showed great skills and a lot of heart. I still say Lil G is the best boxer from the DMV
