Lomachenko Looks To Extend Streak With Verdejo

LONDON — Vasyl Lomachenko is scheduled to show off his sweet skills at a perfect time to erase a sour taste in the Olympic boxing tournament.

Ukraine's sublime lightweight and defending Olympic gold medalist returns to the ring against Puerto Rico's Felix Verdejo on Monday in the first bout of the second men's quarterfinal session. The winner is guaranteed a medal, and Lomachenko is likely to get his first test in London.

Lomachenko didn't appear stressed about the bout while watching his teammate, top-seeded heavyweight Oleksandr Usyk, in his own quarterfinal bout Sunday night.

Usyk grinded out a win over Russia's Artur Beterbiev, but other heavyweights turned the card into an eyesore.
