Lomachenko Jabs The Olympic Judges, Eyes a Pro Run

By Ruslan Chikov

Two-time Olympic boxing champion Vasyl Lomachenko of Ukraine, said the judges at the 2012 London games were not objective. Despite being a heavy favorite in the lightweight division, he was very worried before every fight because of the officiating.

"Every victory at the Olympics was difficult," Lomachenko said. "Despite the wealth of experience, before each fight I was worried. They were judging quite ambiguously, and unfairly, especially against Ukrainians. We should work on the result rather than showcase a nice fight. Everyone tried their best not to miss a single shot."

As reported before on BoxingScene.com, the talented fighter is finally looking at a lucrative run in the pro ranks.

"Most likely, this was my last fight in amateur boxing. But I still don't know the opinions of my father and coaches [on this move]," he said.
