Saturday night, there were a lot of people that expected Vasyl Lomachenko to walk into the Alamodome in San Antonio and make some quick work of Orlando Salido.

Well, that certainly hasn’t been the case this evening as Salido is making the Ukrainian Olympic champion work for everything that he’s going to get this evening.

At one point, Salido was able to catch Lomachenko while he was ducking to get out of the way with a stiff right hand that had the Ukrainian reeling just a bit.

Again, Salido has done a fantastic job tonight of pushing aside the naysayers and making it very difficult for Lomachenko to walk away with an easy win in this one, something not many saw coming.
