New York – Commemorating the weight of the most important fight in his life, Puerto Rican looked Jose Pedraza calmly yesterday.
This is, despite the fact that many people think the best fighter in the world, Vasyl Lomachenko.
The Ukrainian Lomachenko (11-1, 9 KO), scored 134.4 pounds yesterday on the duel tonight at the Madison Square Garden Theater in this city, greatly hitting the game. Pedraza (25-1, 12 KO), however, does not invest his time reading the expert's forecast.
"I'm not really focusing on that. It does not matter to your favorite," said Pedraza, who stopped the scale yesterday at 134.2 pounds. "Instead, focus on the fight, what I need to do to win. It's not easy for me to focus on who is best for you. Not for Lomachenko really."
However, considering their behavior this week, Ukrainian gives some validity to the forecasts and gabebles, which gives it as a winner tonight an offense of up to 30-1.
Over the past few days, Lomachenko spent more time talking about potential future dues with Manny Pacquiao and Mikey Garcia, not because of his reconciliation tonight. Lomanchenko is a lightweight champion of the World Boxing Association (WBA), and Pedraza of the World Boxing Organization (WBO).
Lomachenko said he was recovered from injury to his right shoulder, which had to be worn after his final winner, Jorge Linares, a huge victory on May 12. This was the first appearance in the light section (135 pounds).
"I had a very good training camp and I was able to use all my pins to my right. I'm sure my shoulder (before Pedraza) will work as before the operation," said Lomachenko.
On these occasions, Pedraza comes from three solid lightweight productions, the final victory unlike Raymond Beltrán who will be a WBO champion.
"Five pounds have a huge difference," said the player from Cidreño, who won the 130-pound title, but from the International Boxing Federation (IBF). Lomanchenko comes from a championship at 126 and £ 130 with the WBO.
The strategy showed
"Le Beltrán we were pulling lots all night long. We did some types of fights in the two rounds and we were able to do it with it. With (Antonio) Morán identical," said Pedraza, who goes over Ukraine at the head inch height (5 "vs. 5", 7 ") and at eighteen inch (71" vs. 65 ").
"Lomachenko is a boxer who is strong natural. It does not matter if it's 130 or 135 pounds, but it's just as we say. And our style allows us to use enough distance, but moving so as not to allow it to use its lateral movements, "continued the cello.
"Linares tried to use areas, but it's a fighter (low movement). It was easier to get in. However, I'm fierce with more mobility and I know how to use a good distance. And we hope to use this in the fight, "said Pedraza, named" Goldo "for his family and friends.
To stop the Vasyl struggle
His father and coach, Luis Espada, made sure his son strive to beat Lomachenko over the Porcupines. Vasyl has already beat Gamalier Rodriguez, and all the Champions Jason Sosa and Rocky Martinez are all screaming.
"But Goldo is tackling that. That's a cabal. The streak is over now," Espada said.
The co-brawl will be showing Isaac Dogboe (22-0, 14 KOs) and the Mexican challenge Emanuel Navarrete (25-1, 22 KO). Yesterday, weighing Dogboe 120.8 pounds and Navarrete 122.
The billboard will be broadcast on ESPN from 10:00 p.m.
