Lomachenko Defends WBO Title With Ninth-Round Stoppage!

Vasyl "Hi-Tech" Lomachenko successfully defended his WBO Super Featherweight title by stopping a very game Jason Sosa at the end of nine rounds.

Lomachenko faced a very game and defensive Sosa in the early rounds but the champion finally caught up to the challenger and Lomachenko was able to land solid shots to Sosa's face and causing a welt over Sosa's left eye.  Eventually,  Lomachenko's offense proved to be too much and the Sosa corner, on the advice of the ringside physician, would not let their fighter come out for the 10th round.

"I came into to show everyone the 'Hi-Tech.  I think I did that very well,"  Lomachenko said.  Lomachenko is now 8-1, five KO's.  Sosa, a former WBA Super Featherweight champion, is now 20-2-4, 15 KO's.

We will have a post-fight wrap-up show in a few moments!
