If you remember, Lomachenko has been missing from the fighting scene since his last match against Teofimo Lopez. It was at this fight where the pound-for-pound king lost his belt to Lopez. After a long time being away, he’s finally back to meet an even bigger opponent: Nakatani! We’re excited to see what new version of Lomachenko would present at his upcoming fight.

Let’s backtrack a bit to his previous match with Teofimo Lopez. At that time, Lomachenko’s performance was clearly not good. You can see that he was out of his usual self, barely showing his power during the clash. Moreover, during the early rounds, the former king didn’t manage to throw any punch. This was a big reason that led to him falling behind when counting the scorecards.

Many have reasoned that he could be wary of Lopez’s power and famous counterpunching abilities at first. But, instead, he started getting more aggressive in the later round, getting some actions in. If he didn’t make any move to engage, he would lose the scorecards for sure. So we could see that it might be a smart move. However, Lopez was the younger and stronger out of the two, so the outcome didn’t change in the end. Now that Lomachenko is back, he’s trying to get a rematch with Lopez, but he will need to get through Nakatani first.

Similar to Lopez, Nakatani is also a tough nut to crack. The fighter is famous for his durability and being a bigger build than Lomachenko. Their fight will take place on June 26. Stay tuned for more updates from us!
