On Saturday night in San Antonio inside the Alamodome, the Ukrainian gold medalist, Vasyl Lomachenko is out to make a statement here in the United States as he looks to capture the WBO Featherweight title as he takes on Orlando Salido.

Throughout the early rounds, the action was few and far between. While some expected Lomachenko to make that statement early, Salido has done a great job at preventing that from happening.

Of the notable action in this one so far has been Lomachenko landing a few stiff shots on Salido as he was being backed into the ropes.

However, part of the reason that Salido has been able to stick in this one may be due to the fact that he has been holding Lomachenko down–literally
