Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko named 2017 Ring magazine fighter of the year

The authoritative American boxing magazine The Ring has recognized WBO super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko as the best fighter of 2017.

“In the 89-year history of THE RING’s Fighter of the Year award, no boxer has ever earned the honor with as few fights under his belt as Vasyl Lomachenko has. Then again, few have achieved as much as the Ukrainian amateur star did after only 11 pro bouts,” reads the article.

In 2017, Ukrainian fighter defeated all his opponents: Jason Sosa, Miguel Marriaga and Guillermo Rigondeaux.

Following “Fighter of the Year” tradition, Vasyl Lomachenko will feature as cover star in the next issue of RING Magazine.

Earlier, HBO, Fightnews and Boxing News 24 named Lomachenko the fighter of the year.
