Vasyl Lomachenko Undergoes Surgery – Pound-for-pound superstar Vasiliy Lomachenko (11-1-0, 11 KOs) underwent arthroscopic surgery Wednesday morning at Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Los Angeles to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder.
Lomachenko suffered the injury during the second round of his title challenge of Jorge Linares (44-4-0, 27 KOs) on May 12th, but the two-time Olympic gold medalist still managed to score a 10th-round stoppage victory.
The surgery, performed by world-renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. Neal S. ElAttrache, will preclude Lomachenko from fighting August 25th as originally scheduled. Lomachenko will begin the recovery process immediately and is hopeful that he will defend his World Boxing Association (WBA) and Ring Magazine lightweight titles before the end of the year.
