Photos: Lomachenko Preparing Hard For Vegas Debut

By Alexey Sukachev / Photos by Miguel Salazar

Two-time Olympic gold medalist Vasily “Hi-Tech” Lomachenko finishes his preparations for the upcoming professional debut on Oct. 12 at Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, against 25-3 Mexican Jose Ramirez. The fight, scheduled for ten rounds, will be a final eliminator for the WBO featherweight title – an unprecedentedly ambitious move by a fighter with no professional fights whatsoever. The dream of Lomachenko is to become the first man in the history of prizefighting, who will win a world title in just two fights from the starters.

Yesterday Lomachenko finished his training camp in Los Angeles, where he had a good workout at CMC Pro Boxing Gym at Marina De Ray, CA, and today the entire team is heading for Las Vegas. Lomachenko's media open workout is scheduled on Monday at 1:30pm at Top Rank Boxing Gym in Vegas.

Vasily’s manager Egis Klimas praised the camp and members of the team: “We had a very good training camp here in California, mornings we’ve been working with the best conditioning coaches in the country, including Los Angeles Lakers conditioning coach Marko Yrjovuori, performance and speed specialist Rick Hagerdon. We also had tremendous sparring sessions at Wild Card Gym, owned by Freddy Roach. Team Lomachenko is fully ready for October the 12th. Tune in for the broadcast, as it will be a sensational performance!”
