AMATEUR, PERSONAL BACKGROUND: 

Vasyl said through an interpreter, "I was born and raised in Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi, Ukraine. I have one sister. She's a gymnast. My father is a boxing trainer – he was also a schoolteacher – and my mother is a gymnastics trainer, so my whole family is involved in sports. My father was an amateur boxer when he was young.

"I can't even remember how old I was when I first started boxing, but I was very, very young. When I was born, I think they took me straight from the hospital to the gym. [note: Vasyl has said in published interviews that he started boxing at the age of four or five]

"I had 396 amateur fights, with one loss.

"I eat with my right hand, I write with my right hand, but I fight left-handed. When I first started, my father trained me and put me in the left-handed stance.

"I'm married. My wife's name is Elena and we have two children. My son's name is Anatoly. He was five years old on November 17. Our daughter was born on August 26, 2012. Her name is Victoria. I named her that for the victory – she was born on the same day I signed with Top Rank."…
