Vasyl Lomachenko just 8 months ago arguably was regarded the best the best pound pound fighter 1,2,3, you can flip around till Teofimo Lopez pitched a first 6-7 rounds shutout. Till this day (Deontay Wilder voice) people still cant understand how Teofimo Lopez neutralize the man that was called the matrix and the best technician in boxing. Did Loma have a off night or Teofimo Lopez is just that special. Teofimo Lopez is the takeover and he showed that night how to takeover and strip Loma off his Aura. Now Loma on June 26th is trying to regain it back by showing he still The matrix vs dangerous Masayoshi Nakatani.
Nakatani who made his name by giving Teofimo arguably his hardest challenge. Nakatani stripped the invincibility of Teo like Teo stripped Loma’s “matrix” Aura. All while suffering a career threatening orbital bone fracture in the hands of Teofimo. The winner of this fight may very will be in line for rematch with the Lightweight Undisputed champion in Teofimo. Loma who is giving up a towering 4-5 inches, will have to find a way to get inside Nakatani’s house and go out the backdoor quick enough before Nakatani is within range to counter.
Nakatani had an impressive win vs Alleged murderer Felix Verdejo. Nakatani got dropped twice and rallied to stop Verdejo in the later rounds. Nakatani after that fight vowed to go for knockouts for now on and during fight week leading up to his loma fight, he utter the same settlement. Lomachenko wants to perform better than Teofimo did vs Nakatani. This is a hard and challenging fights for both contestant but fans should applaud both warriors for taking this risk.
