Vasiliy Lomachenko has returned to the Belgorod-Dnestrovsky Territorial Defense Battalion in Ukraine after a trip to Greece. He’ll join the army entrusted with halting Russia’s assault into Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital.

The internet has been critical of both Oleksandr Usyk and Vasiliy Lomachenko since the Klitschko brothers joined the Ukrainian military to protect their homeland. Both of these fighters are in their primes and have major contests on the horizon. Despite this, they chose to return to their homeland and fight for the defense of their motherland.

Both Usyk and Lomachenko have displayed tremendous bravery. Both of them are multi-millionaires who might have sought asylum from the violence in any country. They have, however, presented a united front for Ukraine, following in the footsteps of the Klitschko brothers.

They have become a symbol of hope for the Ukrainian people and the rest of the world. Both boxers were afterward praised for their actions on Twitter. The 34-year-old is seen with a weapon and dressed in army fatigues in camouflage. He’s believed to be joining the resistance near Odesa, in the country’s south, as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters on the planet.

He wrote a message on Instagram two days ago asking for prayers for “the peace of the entire globe.” He is the latest boxer to enter the ring in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Lomachenko, 34, is a two-time Olympic gold medallist who has also won world titles in three different weight classes. He has a 16–2 record with 11 knockouts, and his most recent fight was a unanimous decision victory against Richard Commey in December. His next fight is set for June 5 in Australia, where he will face undisputed lightweight champion George Kambosos.

Lomachenko agreed to fight undisputed lightweight champion George Kambosos on June 5 in Australia earlier this month. Lomachenko, a former three-division champion, has won back-to-back fights since losing by decision to Teofimo Lopez in October 2020. In addition, the 34-year-old had surgery to repair a damaged rotator cuff.
