Artem Lobov to take part in charity wheelchair boxing match against Paddy Holohan
Artem Lobov will face Paddy Holohan in a charity wheelchair boxing match in Dublin, Ireland.
It’s safe to say that “The Russian Hammer” is easily one of the most popular cult hero fighters in recent memory. From his never telling attitude to the way he behaves, it was always exciting when Lobov got into the cage or the ring, whether it was mixed martial arts or boxing.
After his last unarmed outing in July, it seemed like he was withdrawing from all forms of combat. Now, however, he’s coming back for a special cause – a wheelchair boxing meeting with his friend Paddy Holohan.
What a day. What an experience! The absolute gentleman @RusHammerMMA invited me for a little practice before my fight with @paddyb_ireland and it was huge. And not only that, but he will now participate in the wheelchair charity fight against none other than @PaddyHolohanMMA pic.twitter.com/W41XeaFTos

Holohan, as many remember, chose to retire from mixed martial arts after being diagnosed with factor XIII deficiency, a rare blood disorder. It has been more than five years since he made the announcement and lately Paddy has decided to turn his attention to the world of politics – a move that has received mixed reactions so far.
Conor McGregor is still expected to compete in a similar contest in the not-so-distant future once his leg heals, but for now it’s up to Lobov and Holohan to carry the torch.
