Ukrainian boxing champions Aleksandr Usyk, Vasyl Lomachenko and Oleksandr Gvozdyk all recorded victories on a seven-bout boxing card at the MGM National Harbor Arena in the U.S. state of Maryland on April 8. It was the first time three Ukrainians performed in one night in the U.S, with channel HBO Sports broadcasting their fights worldwide.
Lomachenko paid tribute to the global viewers after his win over Jason Sosa.
“I entered the ring tonight to show high-tech boxing and to entertain everyone here in the arena and everyone who’s watching our fights on HBO,” he said.
