Vasyl Lomachenko, the former world lightweight champion, has earned enough accolades in his fighting career to cement himself in the top-tier slot. Besides, it has brought sheer stardom and success to the Ukrainian legend. ‘The Matrix’ holds an active record of 14-2, which may not look very impressive, especially when there are umpteen unbeaten champions around.

However, Lomachenko’s technicality and Olympic success have helped him become a household name. Hence, the Ukrainian star is undoubtedly one of the highest-paid boxers of the time. The 33-year-old has a reported net worth of $10 million, and a lot of it has come from his in-ring scraps.
