But this fight was not like every other bout.

Jorge Linares proved that Vasiliy Lomachenko was human, but not even knocking down Lomachenko for the first time in his career wasn't enough to stop him.

Arum hailed the character shown by Lomachenko against Linares, adding: "Going into this fight, we knew Loma was a huge talent". His power shots came from his right hand, but he was still fluid and smooth in his southpaw stance.

The great ones always seek out the most hard challenges, and Lomachenko said he would like to unify. "It happens. I prepared for the last few rounds and my father told me, 'You need to go to the body'". The first round was very close with most ringside observers split on who won the round.

Lomachenko found a ideal left hook to the body in round 10 to stop Linares and close the show.

"It just made this fight much more interesting", Lomachenko said, declining to make a big deal of it.

It's nearly time for two of the best current Pound-for-Pound fighters to meet in the middle of the squared circle and with that, I wanted to do a bit of a comparison based on my views of their attributes so that we can look at how close this contest really is on paper!

Lomachenko was moving up to the 135-pound class to challenge a champion who came in with a 13-fight winning streak, including seven title defenses.

Linares: 44-3 with 27 knockouts.

This will be a good fight. But by the end of the third round, Lomachenko's fast hands and feet began to turn the fight in his favor.

"El Nino de Oro" delivered a one-two to the kisser at the resumption, but halfway through eight Lomachenko upped the ante again, pouncing upon the cut which now flanked Linares' right eye.

That knockdown marked a turning point in the bout, as it seemed to shake Lomachenko's confidence and help boost Linares'. He also found the target with a left and a right, but was unable to follow up.

A Lomachenko-Garcia fight would be epic because, at worst, they're both in the mythical pound-for-pound top 10 and each is a complete fighter with no discernible weakness. He said at the post-fight news conference that he injured a hand in the second, but it was hardly noticeable in his performance. "He has a fighting heart".

Said Linares: "The knockout punch was perfectly landed".
