    Default Vasyl Lomachenko v Masayoshi

    Vasyl Lomachenko returns to the ring this weekend looking to bounce back from his shock defeat to Teofimo Lopez.

    Lomachenko was widely regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the sport but was stunned by Lopez in October.

    It was a humbling defeat for the Ukrainian who lost his WBA, WBO, and The Ring lightweight titles.


    Now, he’ll be eager to hit back when he faces Japan’s Masayoshi Nakatani in Las Vegas this weekend.

    Nakatani has a record of 19 wins and one defeat, which also came against Lopez, and beat Felix Verdejo in last outing in December.

    It should be another tough test for Lomachenko but he’ll be eager to put on a show and potentially set up a rematch with Lopez.

    This 12-round lightweight bout will take place on Saturday, June 26 and is being held at the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.

    The ring walks for Lomachenko v Nakatani are expected from 5am on Sunday morning UK time.

    The night’s action will be shown on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Action from 3am on Sunday morning.

    Promoter Bob Arum believes Nakatani will give Lomachenko a tough test this weekend.

    He said: “I mean look what he Nakatani did with Felix Verdejo [in his last fight] and he also gave Teofimo fits.

    “No, Nakatani is real.

    “I give Loma credit for, Loma would never take a tomato can or an easy fight.

    “He wants the toughest fights.”

    Vasyl Lomachenko returns to the ring tonight in an effort to kick-start his return to the top of the lightweight division against Masayoshi Nakatani.

    The Ukrainian shipped only his second career loss, and first in over five years, when Teofimo Lopez took his belts in Las Vegas last October with a dominant unanimous decision.

    And he's determined to haul himself back into contention when he welcomes the Japanese Nakatani, who has only lost once in his career, also to Lopez by decision.

    Nakatani is much bigger than Lomachenko, but likely won't be as fast as the once pound-for-pound great.

    Elsewhere in America, Gervonta Davis is back in the ring as he fights for the world super lightweight title against fellow undefeated fighter Mario Barrios in Atlanta.

    Davis last fought on Halloween in Texas, landing a viral knockout on Leo Santa Cruz at the Alamodome in San Antonio in one of the first boxing events with a crowd since the start of the pandemic.

    Quotes corner

    Vasyl Lomachenko: “What inspired me to take this fight is the fact that I just lost all of my titles, I have to start from scratch and wanted to face a top contender.

    “I didn’t want an [easy] opponent. This guy gave Teofimo Lopez a very tough fight and I have prepared well for his challenge.”

    I think the logic behind this fight is for Lomachenko to try and win more convincingly than Lopez so as to force the rematch.

    I don't honestly believe it will be that straight forward, Lopez may be more attracted to face anyone at 140 which renders this fight more or less pointless outside of a reputational rehab for Loma.

    Tell you what through this lead up Loma sure has not lacked for making excuses regarding the Lopez loss. Going to be real interesting to see if he fights with some early intensity tonight. Plenty of target to pick Nakatani is massive.

    Rob Brant was a former champion. Just let that sink in . His corner should have pulled him 2 rounds ago. Total domination by Zhanibek.

    On a side note Bradley needs to do less sound effects. It's not quite Lampley's BANG-BANG-BANG but he whooops and uhhhs a lot.

    Loma on point in 3rd. looked like kd on Nakatani

    Getting gritty 4th Nakatani roughing with upper frame and good shots to body and Loma squaring up and putting head in there. Better round Nakatani

    Nice to see Loma going for a KO, the japs are tough masochists though.

    Loma coiled around him nice! Brutal .Pretty sure Nakatani thought he punched himself looking up at the ref .

    Keep snapping him back high and hard like that it's a wrap just on visuals but Nakatani weathering it.

    Right eye of Nakatani looks like he was cold cocked with a sock full of ball bearings. Lomas to close it looks
