4.Vasyl Lomachenko :

Boxing’s next big thing?

One of the greatest amateur boxers ever Vasyl Lomachenko is just five fights into his pro-boxing career and already is being touted as the next big thing in professional boxing.

He is a master at controlling distance and has power in both his hands as was evident from his victory over Gamalier Rodriguez last week.  This well-rounded approach to the game makes him highly pleasing to the audience thereby helping him in getting bigger fights and continue his journey up the pound for pound ladder.
