2017 was a big year for Vasiliy Lomachenko (10-1, 8 KOs).

The newly dubbed “NoMasChenko” racked up another 2017 award to add to his 2017 RingTV.com Fighter of the Year award as RBRBoxing’s fans voted “Hi-Tech” the 2017 boxer of the year.

Lomachenko scored three stoppage victories over Jason Sosa, Miguel Marriaga and Guillermo Rigondeaux to go 3-0, 3 KOs in 2017.

Lomachenko christened the MGM National Harbor in April of 2017 in front of 3,000 plus fans–many of which were rowdy Ukrainians who made the trip to Oxon Hill, MD.

Next up, Lomachenko dominated Marriaga on ESPN from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

And finally, Lomachenko met up with fellow two-time Olympic gold medal winner, Rigondeaux.

While Lomachehnko was favored because of his youth and size, many people were left sur

 

prised and just how easily Lomachenko dispensed of Rigondeaux–eventually making the Cuban amateur legend quit on his stool.

Lomachenko received 40 percent of the RBRBoxing fan vote, while his Top Rank stablemate Terence Crawford–who collected the 2017 ESPN Fighter of the Year award–finished in second place with 19 percent of the vote.
