VASYL LOMACHENKO has thrown his support behind the decision to allow professional boxers to compete at the Olympics.

The two-time Olympic champion has picked up the WBO featherweight title since turning over in 2013, and will vie for the super-feather belt against Roman ‘Rocky’ Martinez on June 11.

While AIBA’s decision to allow pros at the Games has been met with widespread derision, Lomachenko likes the idea.
