Schwarzenegger visits Ukrainian boxer Lomachenko in hospital

Legendary actor, governor and philanthropist Arnold Schwarzenegger has visited Ukrainian boxer Vasyl Lomachenko (11-1, 9 KO), who is recovering after surgery on his shoulder.

Recently, the WBA world lightweight champion successfully underwent surgery on his right shoulder after an injury sustained in a title match with Venezuelan Jorge Linares.

Schwarzenegger visited Lomachenko at a U.S. hospital and congratulated him on a great victory in the previous fight.

Lomachenko said he hurt his shoulder during the second round of his 10th-round stoppage victory over Jorge Linares in New York on May 12. 

Lomachenko could return to training in early October and be ready to fight in early December. The most likely opponent of the Ukrainian boxer is WBO lightweight champion Ray Beltran of Mexico (35-7-1, 21 KO).
