You're reading: Lomachenko steps up for second gold
Popular
on social media

Lomachenko was just about the hottest favorite of the London
Games after he followed up the featherweight gold he won with ease in Beijing
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 win in front of compatriot and world
professional champion Vladimir Klitschko.

The irrepressible Lomachenko was in a different league to
the Korean, taking the first round 7-2 with fierce right and left upper-cuts,
punishing body shots topped off with sleek footwork that is almost unmatched
among the amateur game.
