Lomachenko vs Nakatani 

My goal is to get a revenge match against Teofimo Lopez in order to win my world championship belt back from him.

Lomachenko vs Nakatani

The first step to regaining his place in the lightweight class will take place this weekend.  Vasyl Lomachenko - two-time Olympic champion and former world championship champion among professionals in three different weight classes - will meet tomorrow, Saturday, live on ESPN +, in the 'Virgin Hotel Las Vegas' on the Japanese Masayoshi Nakatani (19-1-1, 13 knockout victories  ).  The fight is his second straight in Vegas and the sixth overall, dating back to his professional debut in October 2013 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

The fight with Lopez came about during the pandemic and at a time when fans were not allowed to attend events in Nevada.  Such restrictions have since been lifted and a full house is expected this weekend to see if Lomachenko returns to his triumphant paths.

"My goal is to be as active as possible, but above all against the highest competition," says Lomachenko.  “It doesn't matter where the fight takes place.  The important thing is that I fight, the fans are back and I plan to win back all of my titles. "

 The weights of the main fighters:

 Vasyl Lomachenko ……………….  61.0 kilos

 Masayoshi Nakatani …………….  60.9 kilos
