Like Einstein and Newton, Lomachenko & Rigondeaux discovered at an early age what nature had wired their brains for. They realized their true talents and for most of their life pursued their destiny. After achieving 2 gold medals apiece, and victories in over 900 fights combined, their paths will cross this Saturday. Two of the slickest, technical wizards of a generation, put a lifetime of work on display for our entertainment. Who will win?... the lighting blend of agility, footwork and timing or the defensive spellbinder that hasn't lost since 2003. We get our answer soon.
This fight demonstrates that Genius is not only about having a high IQ. Genius is knowing what one should be doing and doing it as much as possible. Doing your best at what your best at. Under this definition, we all have the potential to be a type of genius.
But just like a poor Ukrainian and Cuban boy did early on, we all must figure out our true purpose and get to work. The clock is ticking. And achievement comes to those that get a head start.
