How Much Money Has Vasyl Lomachenko Earned from His Boxing Career?
Vasyl Lomachenko, the former world lightweight champion, has earned enough accolades in his fighting career to cement himself in the top-tier slot. Besides, it has brought sheer stardom and success to the Ukrainian legend. ‘The Matrix’ holds an active record of 14-2, which may not look very impressive, especially when there are umpteen unbeaten champions around.
However, Lomachenko’s technicality and Olympic success have helped him become a household name. Hence, the Ukrainian star is undoubtedly one of the highest-paid boxers of the time. The 33-year-old has a reported net worth of $10 million, and a lot of it has come from his in-ring scraps.

However, he doesn’t seem to fight for money any longer. ‘Loma’ has earned enough to hang his gloves and spend the rest of his life without working. Despite this, he is still hungry for challenges and is a relevant name in the lightweight championship ride. Here’s a look at his earnings from boxing.
