Connor Ruebusch and Patrick Wyman talk about Sergio Pettis and Vasyl Lomachenko, and answer listener questions.
This weekend, Sergio Pettis gave fans hope. The younger brother of former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis earned the biggest win of his career, a clear and very impressive victory over Brandon Moreno. Pettis showed off his striking skill–both pressuring and countering–and carried himself with a level of comfort we had yet to see from him in the cage. We may have a serious contender on our hands, people.
Then it’s on to Vasyl Lomachenko–and speaking of hope, we discuss Lomachenko’s opponents, who rarely seem to have any. Miguel Marriaga is not the most skillful adversary to date, but he fights well and hits hard, with 21 of 25 wins by knockout. And yet when round one began and Lomachenko met Marriaga in center ring, the puncher wanted nothing to do with “Hi-Tech’s” hands.
And at the end of today’s show, we answer some questions from the Heavy Bag. Thanks patrons!
