Vasyl Anatoliyovich Lomachenko is a Ukrainian professional boxer. He has held the WBO junior lightweight title since June 2016, having previously held the WBO featherweight title from 2014 to 2016. Known for his excellent hand speed, timing, accuracy, creativity and lateral movement, Lomachenko is one of the most highly rated fighters in boxing today, as well as arguably the greatest amateur boxer of all time. Competing in the featherweight and lightweight divisions as an amateur, he won a silver medal at the 2007 World Championships, consecutive golds at the 2009 and 2011 World Championships, and consecutive golds at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.
Lomachenko last faced Nicholas Walters in a fight that was anticipated to be competitive, but Lomachenko totally outclassed Walters, and the frustrated Jamaican quit on his stool after the 7th round. Lomachenko is looking to rematch Orlando Salido in early 2017 (who gave him his only loss), and then move up in weight.
