Ukrainian boxer of the first middle weight Sergei Bogachuk (20-1, 20 KOs) shared his thoughts on the strange civic position of ex-boxing champion in three divisions Vasyl Lomachenko.
“Lomachenko remains in Ukraine. He could leave and not say anything. If he was specifically for that country, he could box for it. I think that he was offered more than once to change his citizenship, box for that country and represent it. But he stayed here and, be that as it may, he won two Olympics. Vasya constantly glorified Ukraine for a long time, raised the flag of Ukraine and played the anthem. Few have done what Vasya did for Ukraine.
And now to criticize him … The only thing he says is: “We are brothers, we are brothers.” On the 24th, when the war began, everything became clear. Brother does not attack brother and brother does not kill brother,” said Bogachuk.
