Vasyl Lomachenko, Oleksandr Usyk and Oleksandr Gvozdyk are the boxers flying the flag at the highest level for Ukraine - a trio of the finest fighting men in the world right now.
But whispers in the boxing word are growing louder about another potential Ukranian great, and it soon might be a case of 'move over fellas', it’s time for stunning Serhii Bohachuk to fly the nation’s flag.
BoxNation subscribers get a glimpse of the latest Ukrainian nightmare when he faces Mexico’s Fernando Marin in Los Angeles on Sunday 28th July.
His power has already been compared to Gennady Golovkin and he’s trained by the legendary Kazakh’s former trainer Abel Sanchez and promoted by Tom Loeffler, who advises GGG.
All 14 professional fights have ended in knockout victories and Loeffler says: “Serhii Bohachuk is one of the most destructive fighters I have ever witnessed.”
With Loeffler and Sanchez on board there are bound to be comparisons with Golovkin, who the Super-Welterweight has trained alongside in Big Bear.
Time will tell if Bohachuk is a pretender or contender. But after 14 fights Golovkin was arguably less known than Bohachuk.
GGG had fought 13 of his contests in Germany and another in Denmark. He had also been the distance in three eight rounders. Bohachuk is already making noises in the Unites States, thanks to Loeffler.
It was another five or six fights before Gennady started winning proper titles, and he has remained at the top for 10 years.
Bohachuk was a savage in the WSB for Ukraine Otamans where his best win came against Ronnie Iglesias, the London 2012 Olympic gold medallist and 2009 World Amateur Champion.
He even lit up York Hall when the Otamans took on the British Lionhearts, outpointing Nottingham’s Ekow Essuman in a thriller.
“Serhii has passed every test thus far,” Loeffler told Boxingscene.
“Sparring Gennady and learning from Abel has paid off and he has gotten better in each fight. He is certainly someone that can make great strides in 2019 towards becoming a legitimate contender.”
Looking at Bohachuk’s fights he is improving under Sanchez. He was a talented, raw kid when he switched over, but Sanchez has tightened up his defence and improved his latest prospect’s head movement greatly.
He last boxed in May when he stopped former World Title challenger Freddy Hernandez inside five rounds.
It was a step up in class and full of promise, but the opponents will get tougher and not all will crumble under his power. Questions will be answered then.
Against Hernandez, Bohachuk showed patience, but ultimately his aggression and youthfulness told.
This is a ride that you don’t want to miss, tune into BoxNation and watch Bohachuk in action this Sunday night at midnight.
