Vasyl Lomachenko next fight

Short Feature: Lomachenko Speaks On His Father’s Influence On His Boxing Career

Published On June 12, 2016 | By Niall Doran | Boxing News, Boxing Views and Opinion

Vasyl Lomachenko recorded his latest win this weekend and went down in the history books by doing so.

The Ukraine native captured the WBO super-featherweight title and became the first man in professional boxing history to lift titles in multiple weight divisions inside an astonishingly short seven fight career (to date!).

The achievement almost speaks for the stellar boxing skills the man has, but not many realise where it all began for a young Vasyl.

Like a lot of kids growing up, his parents were instrumental in getting him involved in sports and in particular, his father played a key role in getting him into the sport of boxing as a youngster.

The folks at HBO have put together an excellent short watch from Lomachenko this weekend before he won his title, where he speaks about his father’s influence and where those ridiculously good boxing skills came from:
