Lomachenko Takes Over Top Spot on CompuBox Plus/Minus List

Following his dazzling performance vs. Nicholas Walters, Vasyl Lomachenko takes over the #1 spot on CompuBox's Plus Minus List with a +20.9 rating.  He's the highest rated fighter since Floyd Mayweather (+24.5). Lomachenko also ranks #1 in opponents connect pct. at 16.1%-- .7% higher than master boxer Guillermo Rigondeaux. 

This stat is so impressive given Loma is the busier offensive fighter (22 of 59.5 per round) to Rigos 11.6 of 49.4  per round.  Normally a busier fighter is more susceptible to opponents counters.  Mayweather avg'd 16.9 of 38.9 per round. 

Money opponents landed 18.9%.  Lomachenko lands 49.4% of his power punches, 12.1% higher than the CompuBox average.  Lomachenko's opponents land just 22.7% of their power punches, 14.6% lower than the CompuBox average.

LAS VEGAS — Vasyl Lomachenko successfully defended his WBO junior lightweight title, winning when Nicholas Walters was unable to continue after seven rounds Saturday night at the Cosmopolitan.

Lomachenko, the 28-year-old Ukrainian star who won two Olympic gold medals, improved to 7-1. Walters dropped to 26-1-1.

Lomachenko had his best round of the fight in the seventh, landing multiple power shots, including a hard shot to the temple that ultimately led Walters to stop fighting.

Lomachenko began to take control in the sixth, displaying superior technical skills and controlling the ring. By the end of the seventh, Lomachenko had the fans on their feet as he looked to finish the fight, landing a number of powerful combinations.

Walters survived the flurry and appeared fine as the round ended and he headed back to his corner. However, between rounds, Walters’ corner informed the referee that he was unable to continue and the fight was stopped and ruled a TKO for Lomachenko.

[QUOTE=-PBP-;17240594]2 different fighters bro. Ward relies a lot more on his inside game so of course he's going to take more punishment. 2 future hall of fame fighters and Olympic gold medalists. Why not just appreciate the skill of both?[/QUOTE]…

This is why Rigo vs. Loma would be a boring fight to the casual eye. Both of these guys rarely get hit. Rounds could be decided by a single jab.
