Ukraine's Vasyl Lomachenko knocked out Roman Martinez to grab the World Boxing Organization super featherweight world title -- his second world belt in just his seventh pro bout.

"Someone once said Vasyl Lomachenko wasn’t much of a puncher. It’s time to rethink that. The Ukrainian captured his second world title in just his seventh professional fight, knocking out Roman “Rocky” Martinez of Puerto Rico in the fifth round Saturday night before a crowd of 4,545 at the Theater at Madison Square Garden. Lomachenko, who earlier captured a featherweight title, took Martinez’s WBO junior lightweight belt in dominating fashion. After controlling the first four rounds, Lomachenko (6-1, 4 KOs) finished the Puerto Rican with a right cross at 1:09 of the fifth round, disappointing many in the crowd ready for an early start to Sunday’s Puerto Rican Day Parade. “I came to do my job and I did my job very well tonight,” Lomachenko said. He did indeed. Martinez (29-3-2, 17 KOs) seemed to have trouble solving Lomachenko’s southpaw style. Lomachenko found his distance with his jab, connecting with three straight at one", nypost.com
"NEW YORK (AP) — Vasyl Lomachenko turned a Puerto Rican celebration into a Ukrainian holiday with a brutal knockout of Rocky Martinez to take the WBO junior lightweight title Saturday night. Lomachenko, 129 pounds didn't exactly ruin the evening for the heavily Puerto Rican crowd that saw Felix Verdejo also scored a fifth-round knockout earlier. Lomachenko won Olympic gold in 2008 and 2012 — he has tattoos honoring those victories on each bicep — and beat Gary Russell two years ago for the WBO featherweight crown. In what has become a tradition for Puerto Rican fighters started by such champions as Felix Trinidad and Miguel Cotto, Verdejo dominated his Mexican opponent with sharp rights and precise jabs. Verdejo, 134 pounds, opened a cut under Martinez's right eye in the third round as the heavily Puerto Rican crowd of 4,545 in the Theater at Madison Square Garden cheered lustily. The two-time Olympic gold medalist and three-time world champion was in", www.seattlepi.com
"NEW YORK (AP) — With Miguel Cotto nearing the end of his career, Puerto Rican boxing fans are looking for his replacement. Rocky Martinez is also on the card, although he is the opponent for up-and-coming Ukrainian star Vasyl Lomachenko, who says he has plans to ruin the weekend for Puerto Rican fans. Top Rank CEO Bob Arum hopes Verdejo can be the star who brings out enthusiastic Puerto Rican boxing fans, but he needs a few more big wins before he can move from the theater into the big room. In addition to Verdejo, Martinez, a three-time world champion, said he is ready for the opportunity to fight at the Garden during Puerto Rican Day weekend and wants 'to be the man for all Puerto Ricans.'", www.chron.com
"Boxing champion Miguel Cotto added to his fame and fortune by being an annual fixture fighting in Madison Square Garden on the weekend of the Puerto Rican day parade. Beginning in 2005, Cotto fought six times in the New York area in early June, much to the delight of his countrymen. Now Felix Verdejo is being asked to assume that mantle. The 23-year-old native of San Juan will take on Juan Jose Martinez of Mexico in one of three featured bouts Saturday night at the Theater at Madison Square Garden. In the co-main event, Vasyl Lomachenko of the Ukraine challenges Roman “Rocky” Martinez of Puerto Rico for the WBO junior lightweight championship. As an added attraction, Zou Shiming of China makes his United States debut taking on Jozsef Ajtai of Hungry. HBO will televise. Verdejo (21-0, 14 KOs) is viewed as the next great champion out of Puerto Rico, but hasn’t looked impressive in his last two fights. He knows he needs to look good being showcased in New York on", nypost.com
