From a two-time Olympic gold medallist to a three division boxing champion- Vasyl Lomachenko's journey 

Vasyl Lomachenko is widely regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world right now. Ahead of his fight this weekend, we take a look at his journey to the top. 

Early Start 

Lomachenko was introduced to the sport by his father who insisted he take dance lessons before he stepped into the ring. Many believe this tremendously helped his footwork. 

Olympic Glory 

Lomachenko has won not one but two Olympic gold medals. His first one was at the 2008 Beijing Olympic games and his second was at the 2012 Olympic games on London.

First World Title 

'Loma' secured his first world title win with a majority decision win over Gary Russell Jr to win the WBO featherweight title. 

Three weight world champion

'Loma' became a three-division world champion after an impressive unanimous decision win over Jose Pedraza.
