Lomachenko Is Number 1
According to the stat wizards at CompuBox, Vasyl Lomachenko takes over the #1 spot on CompuBox's Plus Minus List with a +20.9 rating after his Saturday night win over Nicholas Walters.
“He's the highest rated fighter since Floyd Mayweather (+24.5). Lomachenko also ranks first in opponents connect pct. at 16.1%– .7% higher than master boxer Guillermo Rigondeaux.
“This stat is so impressive given Loma is the busier offensive fighter (22 of 59.5 per round) to Rigo's 11.6 of 49.4 per round. Normally a busier fighter is more susceptible to opponents counters. Mayweather averaged 16.9 of 38.9 per round. Money's opponents landed 18.9%. Lomachenko lands 49.4% of his power punches, 12.1% higher than the CompuBox average. Lomachenko's opponents land just 22.7% of their power punches, 14.6% lower than the CompuBox average.”
