The popular American super lightweight (up to 63.5 kg) Ryan Garcia (23-0, 19 KOs) suggests that the strained comeback of 34-year-old veteran Vasily Lomachenko (17-2, 11 KOs) after a long downtime without fights is not so much a consequence of “rusty ”, How many long-known reasons: he is still too small for light weight (up to 61.2 kg), and it’s difficult for him here.
In October, after a break of almost a year, Loma defeated Jemaine Ortiz by decision, but for this he had to sweat much more than observers and boxing fans expected.
“Loma just might be too small for 135 pounds,” Garcia wrote on social media, where he was asked to evaluate the fight he saw.

Do you think Lomachenko made a weak performance on purpose? The American specialist thinks that Lomachenko is still very good.
