Lomachenko will battle Masayoshi Nakatani this weekend as he looks to get his boxing stint back on track. The last time ‘Loma’ stepped inside the ring, it was against the current champ, Teofimo Lopez. Prior to entering this clash, the Ukrainian boxer was considered a favorite. But the way this fight chalked out shook everyone from the core.

The underdog Lopez, who didn’t even have substantial in-ring appearances, defeated Lomachenko and dethroned him from the champion spot.

Loma fared well in this fight, but by the time he picked up the pace, it was too late. However, he still managed to hammer ‘The Takeover’ to a certain extent, but eventually ended up losing the contest. Since then, he hasn’t stepped inside the ring and the only fight he wanted was a rematch with Lopez.

But the second contest between the pair didn’t come to fruition, and now the southpaw is aligned to face Masayoshi Nakatani. This fight is highly important for Lomachenko to revive his boxing career and he’s excited to pull off a thriller.

That said, here we look at some of the most vital details regarding this contest.
