Vasyl Lomachenko vs Masayoshi Nakatani Fight Preview

A southpaw fighter out of Ukraine, Lomachenko has been in constant title contention throughout his 16-fight career. In his professional debut in 2013, he claimed the WBO International Feather Title. Lomachenko then missed out on the WBO World Feather Title by split decision in his second match. From there, the now 33-year-old claimed the WBO World Feather Title in his third match, adding the WBO World Super Feather Title, WBA Super World Light Title, and WBC World Light Title over the next six years.

Nakatani will be the much bigger man on fight night, with nearly a five-inch height advantage and being a much more natural fit at lightweight. There has been talk from many — though not from Lomachenko — that a return to 130 pounds would be the best career move as Lomachenko moves toward the back end of his career. How the fight with Nakatani plays out will show if there’s any truth to that line of thinking.

Top Rank’s Bob Arum has instead said Lomachenko has a focus on the big names at lightweight, suggesting fights with Davis and Haney are possibilities, in addition to the Lopez rematch.

“Obviously, if Lomachenko wins, he doesn’t want to sit around waiting,” Arum told FightHype. “Lomachenko only wants to fight the best, and who are the best? Maybe Devin Haney or maybe Tank Davis. I mean, Loma would consider both of them big challenges, and we would certainly like to make those matches. But again, it takes two to tango.”

Who is Vasyl Lomachenko

A southpaw fighter out of Ukraine, Lomachenko has been in constant title contention throughout his 16-fight career. In his professional debut in 2013, he claimed the WBO International Feather Title. Lomachenko then missed out on the WBO World Feather Title by split decision in his second match. From there, the now 33-year-old claimed the WBO World Feather Title in his third match, adding the WBO World Super Feather Title, WBA Super World Light Title, and WBC World Light Title over the next six years.

Who is Masayoshi Nakatani 

At 32 years old, Nakatani has been boxing professionally since 2011. He’s held the OPBF Light Title since 2014, recording 11 successful defenses. He claimed his first major title in December when he picked up the then-vacant WBO Inter-Continental Light Title. A win over an opponent like Lomachenko will likely lend legitimacy to his resume.
