Having already gifted us excellent videos on virtually every top technical pugilist in the game today, including Roman Gonzalez, Gennady Golovkin, Guillermo Rigondeaux, Andre Ward, Canelo Alvarez and Floyd Mayweather, it was just a matter of time before Lee Wylie turned his attention to one of the sport’s most thrilling and creative performers. In only seven matches, “Hi-Tech” has firmly established himself as one of boxing’s most gifted practitioners, his inspired movement and tactical innovation marking him as something very special indeed. Despite his paltry level of pro experience, no one doubts his skill and potential; Lomachenko has all the hallmarks of a future Hall of Famer. Wylie shows us exactly how and why that is the case in another of his insightful and entertaining videos. Check it out:
“Rigondeaux vs Lomachenko would be a superlative clash, featuring as it does two of the finest boxers in the game today, two former amateur stars and two men desperate for quality opposition. Simply put, it’s a fight that absolutely must happen. For Lomachenko, it’s the ultimate opportunity to display his art, a chance for the man who could very well become boxing’s next big star to produce an undisputed tour de force that will be talked about for years to come.
As defined by the Cambridge Dictionary, a muse is described as an imaginary being or force that gives someone ideas, and helps them to write, paint or make music. Lomachenko, a man who wants to be remembered as a ‘boxer-painter,’ may very well have found his muse in “The Jackal,” the adversary who might evoke a performance for the ages, a masterpiece. All we can do now is wait and hope that this match will be made in the very near future and admirers of the art of boxing will get their dream fight.” From “Lomachenko’s Muse” by Daniel Attias
