He's got a pretty good sound too - not quite as nice as Basta, though.
Ah, that's right - Muay Thai. Damn that's ****ty how the government changed up like that. I believe athletes are some of the best, and most respected representatives of their country, and should be looked after properly. Glad you found new-found success, and everything that comes with in in Russia. Was it hard for you to get resident status in Russia with the current problems between Ukraine, and Russia?
I got another question - how did you learn to speak English so well? From my experience, a lot of younger people from Eastern Europe, and Russia, can speak English decently, but not nearly as proper as you. Did you just start taking lessons, and classes as a young kid? Also, would you say that your family in Ukraine is "middle-class"? or "upper-middle/wealthy"?
... I hope Arum carefully and truthfully builds Loma's career as a pro fighter.
I don't see a bright future for Lomachenko if Arum over-hypes and over-protects him. Loma needs to stay cool and progress in a sound manner. It would be a pity to see a "green" and over-confident Loma being dropped cold like Abner Mares, for instance...
I've watched the WSB Loma's fight with Albert Selimov (the best opponent to date)... In that fight Loma was quite slow... I'm aware of AIBA gloves issue -- but I remember that Golovkin KOd my boy Bute with the same gloves... Overall, I'm a big fan of the "Old Soviet Boxing School" -- let's say starting with Lemeshev, if you remember him... (I have nothing against Lomashenko, but Arum may waste him by pushing too fast.)
