Vasiliy Lomachenko TKOs Las Vegas' Jorge Linares in 10th

GETTY    
   Vasyl Lomachenko takes on Jorge Linares for the world title

Fight Vasyl Lomachenko - Jorge Linares will take place on 12 may at the legendary 20-thousand arena "Madison Square Garden" in NY. And now history is his once again.

The two fighters have taken over NY this week and it is easy to understand why.

Lomachenko broke the record held by Australian legend Jeff Fenech, a Hall of Famer who won world titles at bantamweight and junior featherweight before winning a belt at featherweight in his 20th fight in 1988.

Who do you want to see Linares and Lomachenko fight next? He captured his first world title in 2007, when he scored a 10th-round stoppage over Oscar Larios to win the vacant WBC Featherweight crown.

Lomachenko (10-1, 8 KOs) beat his last four opponents so thoroughly that their corners wouldn't let them take more punishment from the Ukrainian.

Vasyl Lomachenko will take on WBA Lightweight Champion Jorge Linares at the famous Madison Square Garden in NY, undefeated Irish prospect Michael Conlan will also be part of the BoxNation live stream broadcast on May 12.

Yet the man who will share the ring with Lomachenko (10-1, 8 KOs) inside New York's Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET, ESPN) enters as the class of the 135-pound division for the majority of this decade.

"I know I have my advantages". I think he knows and he's going to prepare for that. I'm the natural lightweight here - he's coming up. "I know where I'm at, and I know what I'm capable of doing with the preparation I've had". But hard work, my dedication, got me back. We both have to be at our best.

"You have to respect where the fans and the media and everybody has him at because he's earned it", Linares said through an interpreter when asked about Lomachenko's status on the pound-for-pound list.

I know Loma's style because we were together during the 2012 Olympics.

Linares thinks things are about to get risky. He fought at mid-distance where he was comfortable and was landing fast shots that swelled Linares' left eye almost closed by the middle of the fight. But his championship run will likely come to an end Saturday.

At the time of the stoppage, there was no clear victor on the judges' scorecards. "Before the fight, all boxers talk trash". But landing said punch consistently against a jitterbug southpaw in Lomachenko is far from an easy proposition.

But the fighters themselves wanted the bout and when they insisted it happen, the promoters got it made.
