If I would ask what division is the most promising right now, what would your answer be? Heavyweight? Welterweight? No. The most intense, stacked and promising division right now is the 135 pounds, the lightweight division.
Yes, It is the division that is making the headlines for the recent months and is giving the audience the best actions they can get.
Teofimo Lopez Jr vs Vasily Lomachenko for the unified lightweight belts.
It was indeed an upset. Lopez won via decision to become the youngest unified champion in the history of boxing. What’s more interesting is that he did it against one of the top pound-for-pound fighter Lomachenko.
That vicious perfect uppercut was all around the internet for days! It was a dogfight. Both were exchanging blows that made the fans in attendance roar.
How would you end it better than an uppercut in the middle of the exchanges?
Ryan Garcia vs Luke Campbell.
Garcia the famous one, in the social media platforms, was tested. It was indeed the turning point of his young career towards the title match. And wool, he did respond. Garcia was initially knocked down, but then a brutal body shot whom, I bet he learned from the pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez, ended the match.
Campbell was on his knees, praying for the pain to stop. Dubbed as the “liver shot,” Garcia delivered it perfectly after finding an opening. He was all hyped up that he jumps right to Canelo after the victory.
Owww, I forgot, Devin Haney has yet to fight.
All the winners mentioned above have one thing in common. ALL ARE UNDEFEATED! So even if you shuffle, you will still make a head-turner match.
