Lomachenko was just about the hottest favorite of the London
Games after he followed up the featherweight gold he won with ease in Beijing
four years ago with a world title apiece at both feather and lightweight class.
It was the same story in London when he rarely had to move
into top gear despite moving up a class and he had too much for South Korea’s
Han Soon-chul, easing to a 19-9 victory and earning a congratulatory hug from
Klitschko at ringside.
“The first time I was a bit more excited, I am more
calm now but I am still very happy and delighted to win another medal,”
Lomachenko told reporters.
