Vasyl Lomachenko bet Jose Pedraza by decision to win the WBO lightweight title and defended his WBA (super) and The Ring titles from Madison Square Garden in New York.

That performance was undeniably a solid one. But another lightweight put on a title-sealing victory of a different kind. The flamboyant Teofimo Lopez won the vacant NABF lightweight title by knocking out Mason Menard in the first round.
