Lomachenko: Salido Decision Was Fair, I Blame Myself

By Alexey Sukachev and Yuri Tarantin (Allboxing.ru)

Last Saturday night in San Antonio, Vasyl Lomachenko (1-1, 1 KO or 7-1, 1KO to others) made a very ambitious move by taking a significant step up in competition by taking on three-time and reigning world champion Orlando Salido in a fight for the WBO featherweight title. Salido was only Lomachenko's second opponent outside of the World Series of Boxing.

The Ukrainian talent pushed Salido to the limit, but lost a twelve round split decision in the end. Lomachenko came very close to stopping Salido in the final round. Lomachenko reflected on his first pro loss with Allboxing.ru/BoxingScene.com.

“First of all, I want to thank all of my fans and supporters. I have already reviewed the tape a couple of times, scoring the contest myself. In my mind, it was an even fight but – as a challenger – I should have proved considerable superiority over my opponent, by winning the match-up much more comfortably. It didn't happen and I failed to achieve what I should have. I consider the decision to be fair," Lomachenko said.

“The only one to blame for such an outcome is myself, because I didn't follow the full scope of the game plan and ideas, which my beloved father-trainer put together and explained to me. I didn't follow the pre-fight plan at about 40%, making the biggest mistake with my decreased activity. I didn’t throw enough punches. Perhaps, I was trying to preserve enough energy for the closing rounds."

"In any case, I don’t want to concentrate on any complaints and excuses. I have a lot of work to do in the gym. Now I’m superbly pumped up and my desire for training is higher than ever. We – myself and my team – will learn this lesson and I will become stronger than we were before. Once again, I want to thank my family and my team. Thanks to all of those supporters and critics, who were carefully watching my fight. Thank you so much.”

Wish more fighters had the balls and the self confidence to take a loss like this guy, when even when his fan base doesn't.
