You never know how a guy will react in his first pro fight, in a 10-round distance he's never done with small gloves and no headgear, and against a solid guy who has gone rounds. Different ball game. Sure he pulled it off and looked pretty darn good, but the risk can easily backfire at any moment. Why push him so fast? I think all this talk about him winning a legit world title within a few fights is premature. He has the talent to pull it off, but it would be wiser to get him the proper experience first so that he can learn a few tricks and generalship of the pro game, which is different, especially at the elite level - I don't care how good of an amateur he was. Why risk your blue chip guy so quickly before he has had time to develop fully?
Lomachenko has already fought several six rounders with no headgear against good comp. He fought in that semi-pro boxing league.

Vinnie, please don't forget the condition Vysotskyy laid out as the OP:

I'd already reiterated Vysostskyy's restriction in post #15:

Not picking on you [certainly not, as you're one of my favorite posters], just reemphasizing what an excellent challenge the thread creator laid out for us.

The massive Scottish flyweight Jackie Paterson knocked out 29-1 (and future flyweight world champion) Rinty Monaghan (in 5 rounds no less) in just his second professional bout.
I just wanted to mention it.

Evander Holyfield had a very good and tough first fight against a boxer by the name of Lionel Byarm. Byarm by no means was a great fighter but was a solid pro and gave the real deal a very tough test in his first fight.
