Vasyl Lomachenko’s seven-year-old son Anatoly has certainly inherited his dad’s boxing instincts judging by his first ever contest.
Recorded in Ukraine and posted by Lomachenko fans, Anatoly displayed knowhow beyond his years as he jabbed away at his opponent.
Anatoly, named after Vasyl’s father and trainer, has a bright future ahead of him. He clearly has the family bloodline for the sport running through his veins.
Vasyl is currently one of the biggest stars around. ‘Loma’ put together an amazing amateur C.V. before adding further in the professional ranks.
Lomachenko lost just once in over 400 contests in the unpaid code. ‘Hi-Tech’ then turned pro. He is already a three-weight world title holder, unifying two of those divisions.
Reaching the pinnacle of pound for pound number one recently, Lomachenko is largely considered the best fighter in the world at 140 pounds and below.
A fight against Luke Campbell is currently in the pipeline. Lomachenko bids to add the WBC lightweight crown to his haul.
World Boxing Council chiefs put Lomachenko forward despite being unranked in testament to just how special the Olympic gold medallist is.
Campbell is mandatory challenger. The Hull fighter looks set to be handed home advantage for his biggest career test in the fall.
Furthermore, dates in late August are said to be on the cards.
