The head of the Top Rank promotional company, Bob Arum, shared his opinion about the former world champion in three weight categories, Vasily Lomachenko.
“Of course, the situation in Ukraine affected Lomachenko. He was asked to defend his country, and war is war, his home is ten miles from Odessa, which was bombed by the Russians. So it must affect him.
He was in uniform, but he had to take up arms, and he is constantly ready to return to this. How this will affect him now, when he wants to become the undisputed lightweight champion, you ask him.
I love Lomachenko, I think he is a real Ukrainian patriot, he will do everything in his power. He left Ukraine and came here, but his thoughts always return to Ukraine, because he does not know when a rocket can destroy his house,” Arum said.
