Mehdi Zatout Gives Vasiliy Lomachenko His First Muay Thai Lesson

French Muay Thai specialist Mehdi Zatout kicks Nong-O

Mehdi “Diamond Heart” Zatout has a passion for Muay Thai and a track record for being one of the world’s best strikers.

While at Venum Training Camp Thailand in Pattaya, the Frenchman had the opportunity to work with another one of the world’s best strikers – Vasiliy Lomachenko.

The Ukrainian, who is one of the greatest pound-for-pound boxers on the planet, stepped inside the ring to get a few pointers from Zatout in “the art of eight limbs.”

The video begins with the Frenchman teaching the revered boxing champion some of the finer details needed to throw a roundhouse kick.

After a couple of practice swings, “Diamond Heart” donned the pads and let Lomachenko put his quick lesson to work.

Unsurprisingly, he was a fast learner and had the pads popping as the two friends laughed. In a reply to the Instagram post, Lomachenko thanked Zatout for the lesson.
