The (Anatoly) Lomachenko Effect (Part 2) Alexander Besputin || Breakdown •
Vasyl Lomachenko and his father/trainer Anatoly Lomachenko have certainly transcended the landscape. And (to some degree) the traditions of modern boxing, and combat sports. We are all witness to a new era of “Eastern Bloc” fighters dominating in Boxing and MMA.
In Part One of the series, I focused on dominant Cruiserweight Oleksandr Usyk. Here in Part Two, my focus will be on Russian Welterweight prospect, Alexander Besputin. Whom I’d best describe as an angry Lomachenko. What he lacks in finesse and footwork he makes up in aggression and power. Making the 27-year-old (12-0 9 KO’s) someone to watch out for in a talented weight pool.
Alexander is a three-year pro. At 147 pounds ranked No. 1 by the WBA. He was an elite amateur at the international level before his debut and had three wins in AIBA’s World Series.
He is a stablemate of Lomachenko, Usyk, welterweight contender Egidijus Kavaliauskas. And super lightweight prospect Maxim Dadashev. All are managed by Egis Klimas.
Alexander moved to Oxnard, California to pursue his professional career and made his debut two months later in December. He trains at the Boxing Laboratory Gym with trainer Marcos Contreras.
Lomachenko Style Training
From the unorthodox, or uncommon training methods to the way in which we have seen a sudden rise in Grade A Prospects cut from the same cloth from the same lands. The Matrix Effect is very real. Fighters like GGG, to ultra-talented welterweight prospect (suddenly turned) contender Alexander Besputin (12-0, 9 KO’s).
To (teammate) Heavyweight Olympic Gold Medalist turned 2018 Fighter of the year at Cruiserweight Oleksandr Usyk (16-0, 12 KO’s). To local Golden Gloves fighters; the Lomachenko family is changing the world’s oldest sport.
Throughout the series, I will focus on some of the similarities as well as differences in styles. And of course, what they are doing that makes them all so dominant in their respective lanes. Their movement, speed, distance management and evasion are all stellar. And in some ways, hard work meets creative approaches to fighting in not only preparation but execution.
In part 3, the final installation, I will focus on how Lomachenko’s training and father’s brain for boxing work with such efficacy. For now, enjoy the show, much love.
