"Vasya, you're an a**hole and you suck". Klitschko's ex-coach blasts Lomachenko for his "abandonment of Ukraine"
One of Wladimir Klitschko's former trainers, Sergei Gorodnichev, criticised the action of Ukrainian boxer Vasyl Lomachenko (17-2, 11 KOs), who refused to say directly that he was dedicating his fight against Haynie to Ukraine. Instead, Loma mentioned "this country", ranking it fourth in importance in his life.
"I watched the Lomachenko-Haney press conference. Vasya is an a**hole, sorry for the expression. He couldn't say which country he was boxing for, which country he was dedicating the fight to. "I dedicate the fight to the country". What country? Vasya, you're a Ukrainian, right? So say so. Then he started talking about God. I do not offend believers, no questions asked. But who is at war? Who is fighting? With what? Weapons, trenches. The boys are dying for what? Vasya, you certainly suck," the coach said on his YouTube channel.
It is worth noting that at the same press conference, the 35-year-old native of Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi also spoke about the war in Ukraine, saying that it was pointless to do anything, as it would not change anything anyway.
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.
On February 24, a Ukrainian lightweight posted an image of a dove with two joined hands, painted in the colours of the flags of Ukraine and Russia.
