I still think he looked sharp, but he was gunning it and less patient than usual, maybe trying to erase the memories of his close one with Selmilov a few weeks back.He struggled against Bashenov. Although he won widely, he didn't look as devastatingly good as he did against Valentino. He seemed to get caught plenty downstairs and was hit more often than he usually does. Still, though, I can't complain. Bashenov is no slouch and Lomachenko dominated.
Still, got a lovely clean knockdown and, as always, looked a completely rounded operator.
Amateur boxing should be like this across the board, but 3 rounds. WSB should be next step, 5 rounds. That's pretty much what is happening anyway though, right?
