This Saturday night, live on ESPN from Madison Square Garden in New York, two of boxing's top fighters will square off for the WBO super featherweight title. Current champion Vasiliy "Hi-Tech" Lomachenko (9-1, 8 KOs) will put his title on the line versus Guillermo "El Chacal" Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs). Both fighters are two-time Olympic gold medal winners and have storied amateur careers. Rigondeaux, one of the most avoided boxers in the history of boxing, is looking to finally get the recognition he feels he deserves and is jumping two weight classes to get his chance at glory. He will get that chance against a guy who many consider one of boxing's top pound-for-pound fighters.
