Former world champion in three weight categories Vasyl Lomachenko (17-3, 11 KOs) posted a promo for his new fight on Instagram, provoking a wave of comments from Russian fans. The 35-year-old native of Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi will fight 30-year-old local boxer George Kambosos (21-2, 10 KOs) on May 12 in Perth, Australia.

At stake will be the vacant International Boxing Federation (IBF) lightweight championship belt, which Vasyl failed to take away from Teofimo Lopez (19-1, 13 KOs) in October 2020 and which he has never held in any weight class.

The Russians support Vasyl in every way possible, saying that they will be rooting for him in the fight.

"Understand one thing, you are not a Ukrainian, you are a Russian, Vasily Anatolyevich, the whole Donbas has been with you, is and will always be with you," "These belts should rightfully be yours, you are a real warrior-boxer," "Good training without injuries," "We are waiting and holding our fists for you, Vasily, you are a great boxer. The whole of Russia is for you", "The whole of Russia is drowning for you! Go ahead! Vasya, Russia supports you!", "Russia is with you," they wrote online.

It should be noted that this is not the first time Loma has collected a huge number of enthusiastic messages from Russia. This happened after the Ukrainian published a poster for his battle with Cambosos.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, on January 7, Lomachenko published a Christmas greeting from the head of the UOC-MP, Metropolitan Onufriy. In April last year, the clergyman and more than 20 other priests were found to own Russian passports.

On December 14, Vasyl posted a new post on social media for the first time in more than two months. On his Facebook and Telegram accounts, Loma congratulated his father and coach on his birthday. On December 14, Anatolii Mykolayovych turned 58 years old.

On October 19, Vasyl reacted to the adoption by the Verkhovna Rada of Bill 8371 banning religious organizations in Ukraine affiliated with Russia. On his Instagram, the 35-year-old native of Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi posted the results of the vote, writing "This world will not be the same...".

On August 20, Vasyl Lomachenko refused to respond to the terrible rocket attack on Chernihiv by the Russian occupiers. A few hours after the tragedy, Vasya posted a quote from Archimandrite Sergius (Sribnyansky) of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Prior to that, the Ukrainian boxer bowed down to the head of the Moscow UOC, Onufriy, who had previously been found by the SBU to have a Russian passport. After that, the Ukrainians offered to exchange him in Russia.

It should be noted that during a press conference before the fight with Haney, our compatriot said that only God can stop the war in Ukraine. In addition, Lomachenko did not say the word "Ukraine" when he said who he would fight the American for.

Earlier, Lomachenko refused to call Russia the aggressor and said it was difficult for him to explain the situation. In addition, the Ukrainian recalled how the war began for him, and later refused to condemn Putin and his decision to send troops to Ukraine.

Vasya also expressed confidence that many Russians do not support the war, noting that he sees no point in appealing to the Kremlin leader, whom he called the commander-in-chief.
