Lomachenko vs Nakatani Preview

Lomachenko (14-2, 10 KO) is 5’7” and Nakatani is just under six feet, so the height difference is very real. How much it affects Lomachenko will certainly be something to watch. Lomachenko also needs a victory pretty badly after his loss to Teofimo Lopez last October, when he lost the WBA, WBO and IBF titles.

He cannot afford to drop two straight fights, but after undergoing surgery on his right shoulder after the loss to Lopez last fall, it’ll be interesting to see how he looks here. He’s certainly not underestimating his opponent in this one.

“He is strong, very tall and very long arms,” Lomachenko said about Nakatani leading up to the fight. “He has experience at the top level, as he showed in a [competitive] fight with Lopez and the way he was able to beat [Felix] Verdejo. This is the perfect challenge for me. I’ve always aimed to face the highest level of competition.”

Nakatani (19-1, 13 KO) last fought in December of 2020, when he knocked Felix Verdejo out in nine rounds. He has a 71″ reach (Lomachenko’s is 65.5″), and with victories under his belt against the likes of Krai Setthaphon, Amphol Suriyo and Verdejo, he won’t be an easy out for Lomachenko.

“Watching Lomachenko, I never imagined that I would fight him. Prior to [him moving up to] lightweight, some of his bouts in which he outclassed the opponents, toying with them, amazed me,” Nakatani said.

“The unique footwork that no other fighter has,” Nakani continued. “His craftsmanship was so fantastic that [it] even made me wonder who on Earth could beat him. His dominant victories were simply great. Since Lomachenko moved up to the lightweight division, he looks different from how he used to be. To his credit, his hard-fought victory over Jorge Linares was impressive, showcasing his exclusive skillset, but otherwise, he has not displayed his own boxing [at lightweight], which used to make him so special.”
