Vasyl Lomachenko will make his boxing comeback in October of this year. Lomachenko (16-2, 11 KOs) has not fought in 2022. There are rumors that he has been making word of returning soon.
Legendary Boxing promoter Bob Arum in an interview said: “If he gets leave from the Ukrainian military, we can get Lomachenko in action in October. Then next year, there is a lot of ways for Lomachenko to go. I think Carl Moretti is working with the matchmakers to pick a suitable opponent, and I am sure we will come up with somebody that passes all the next... Remember, Loma has been inactive since December."
The fighters are coming back, and Vasyl Lomachenko appears to be the next. He is ready to go and anxious to step foot back into the ring, looking forward to a new appointment.
“One fight that has to be made — maybe not next for either guy, down the road. Probably next year. A fight that everyone would die to see is Shakur Stevenson and Lomachenko, and both fighters want that fight.”
Lomachenko, the world's No. 9 pound-for-pound boxer and a two-time Olympic gold medalist, suffered a high-profile loss to Teofimo Lopez in October 2020. He had surgery on a torn rotator cuff immediately after the loss and went on to win successive matches over Masayoshi Nakatani and Richard Commey.
