Vasyl Lomachenko is one of the greatest amateur boxers of all time with just one loss on an otherwise excellent record.
The double Olympic gold medallist and world champion is among the most decorated fighters in the history of the sport.
From his teenage years all the way up to the age of 25, Loma had no mercy in the amateur ranks and built up a remarkable record consisting of 396 wins from 397 bouts.
His sole defeat came against Russia’s Albert Selimov at the 2007 World Championship.
Lomachenko was just 19 and attending his first major competition at the time.
He maintained his undefeated record to make the final, however, he only left with the silver medal.
Selimov beat him 16:11 on points and the young Ukrainian was visibly distraught as the result was announced.
After this day, Lomachenko never lost another amateur bout and even got revenge on Selimov by beating him twice in their two future contests.
Now, as a professional, Lomachenko has a record of 14 wins from 13 bouts.
His only defeat came in controversial fashion in 2013, against Orlando Salido, as he leapt up in levels, boldly attempting to win a world title in just his second pro bout.
As in the amateurs, the man also known as ‘High-Tech’ has gone from strength to strength since suffering the loss and is now a three-weight world champion.
He is currently the the WBA, WBC ‘franchise’ and WBO champion, and is set to make his next defence against IBF king, Teofimo Lopez on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
