18:18, 8 August 2018

BWAA, the Boxing Writers Association of America, has once again recognized Ukraine's Vasyl Lomachenko as No.1 among the world's top boxers - regardless of the weight category.

The Hi-Tech (Lomachenko's well-known nickname) has been first on this list for two months in a row. In his previous fight this spring, the Ukrainian defeated Jorge Linares, the famous Venezuelan fighter.

Thus, Lomachenko became the WBO and WBA lightweight champion of the world. After the fight, the Ukrainian underwent a surgery on his shoulder. He plans to resume his career already this month.
