Originally from the Ukraine, Vasyl Lomachenko is considered one of the greatest amateur boxers in the history of the sport and is on his way to becoming one of the top pros in his division now as well.
Before wrapping up his amateur career, he garnered an astonishing record of 396-1. He won a silver medal at the 2007 World Championships, a gold medal at both the 2009 and 2011 World Championships, and a gold medal at both the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.
“Hi-Tech” turned pro in October 2013, where he defeated Jose Ramirez to win the WBO international featherweight title by fourth-round TKO. One fight later, he lost the gold to Orlando Salido.
After that defeat, Lomachenko regained the title after it was vacated and defended it successfully three times. In June 2016, he defeated Roman “Rocky” Martinez to take the WBO junior lightweight title, winning it with an impressive fifth round KO over his Puerto Rican opponent.
