Vasiliy “Loma” Lomachenko (His Full Resume, Current Records He Holds, and His Impact Left on Opponents πŸ“—

Often when you see an outrageous number, or series of numbers to outline a career of some sort, it normally brings with it a level of intrigue, admiration, and something quantitative to use in random boxing talk whenever an individual with these accolades come up in discussion, or a level of surprise.

While many times, those intriguing factoids hold up…..the devil is in the details, as when you take a needed πŸ”¬deeper look, often times gaudy records can fall folly to context, being relegated to reality after turning every page of the detailed book, to where it doesn’t appear nearly as impressive as it presented itself at face value. πŸ‘‘πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦Vasiliy Lomachenko does not fit into that narrative at all throughout his 17 year historic boxing ledger, and his journey is a rare as one when you cast it under the microscope…it actually enhances his standing as a true boxing great.
