#1 in the Pound for pound rankings, the Ukrainian has unified the WBA and WBO belts in
2018, WBC in 2019, and with the IBF belt in his sights he will become the unified
champion of the lightweight category.
A double gold medalist at the Olympic Games, Lomachenko won 3 world titles in just 12
professional bouts. Holding the record of becoming a world champion after only his 3rd
professional fight. The Ukrainian’s unprecedented amateur career of 397 fights with 396
wins and 1 unjust defeat, had already put him in the spotlight and proven his world class
abilities, there was no question of him fighting any warm-up fights or second rate boxers.
Egis Klimas (his manager) was therefore responsible for finding a promotion who would
offer the double Olympic champion a contract to match his prowess. Vasiliy, a tireless
worker, is considered a true genius in the ring by the world of boxing. Nicknamed Hi-tech
or Matrix for his ability to see several shots ahead of his opponents, almost a robotic like
system, the Ukrainian artist’s glowing comparisons never end to the point of considering
his fights works of art, even being compared to Picasso. Far from the glitzy rhinestone
image and trash talking sometimes associated with boxing, Loma has only one motivation,
becoming the best boxer of all time and making history.
Trained from an early age by his father Anatoliy Lomachenko, he has developed exceptional
capabilities via unique and ingenious training methods forming a duo unequaled to this day.
Today Vasiliy is beyond being a great boxer is a great athlete, he rewrites the codes of
boxing, and establishes himself every day a little more as one of the best boxers in history…
