Sergei Gorodnichev, a former member of the coaching staff of Vladimir Klitschko, said he does not consider Anatoly Lomachenko, the father of ex-world champion in three weight categories Vasily Lomachenko, a legendary coach.

“Who is a legendary coach for me? This is the one who raised a galaxy of some boxers. For example, Emanuel Steward, who raised 13 world champions. This is a legend. And what is the legend? He’s just his son’s coach and that’s it, nothing more. Did he appear somewhere, officially work as a coach for someone else? No. So how can he be legendary? What did you come up with?

The fact that he is a good coach, I agree with you one hundred percent. I don’t deny it. Yes, he is a great coach, but his son’s coach. He does not train Usyk, Berinchik, Gvozdik, Shelestyuk or anyone else. How can you call him a legend? He’s a coach and that’s it. Well, he brought up an Olympic champion – you never know such? “- said Sergei Gorodnichev in an interview with the resource” Boxerskaya Pravda “.

We will remind, Gorodnichev also said that Anatoly Lomachenko “drove” Vasily.
