Lomachenko vs Marriaga: Live streaming results and round by round coverage

Vasyl Lomachenko returns tonight on ESPN.

Top Rank

Tonight at 10:00 pm ET on ESPN, Vasyl Lomachenko returns to defend his WBO super featherweight title against former featherweight title challenger Miguel Marriaga in the main event from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Lomachenko (8-1, 6 KO) has entered the discussion as the world’s best pound-for-pound fighter in his recent outings, dominating Rocky Martinez, Nicholas Walters, and Jason Sosa since his move up to 130 pounds.

Marriaga (25-2, 21 KO), frankly, is not expected to present much more of a challenge than those opponents did. The Colombian is coming off of a gritty loss to featherweight titleholder Oscar Valdez, and also lost to Walters back in 2015.

In the co-feature, lightweights Ray Beltran (33-7-1, 21 KO) and Bryan Vasquez (35-2, 19 KO) will do battle. Minor titles are on the line for Beltran only, as Vasquez missed the contracted weight.

Wil Esco will be on the round-by-round call tonight. Join us!
