Lomachenko vs Commey main event preview

Vasiliy “Loma” Lomachenko (15-2) (aka "The Matrix) is not only one of the most respected and feared boxers today, but he’s eyeing a return to the top of the lightweight division. His loss last year to Teófimo López took away his four world championship belts and his aura of near invincibility. Loma bounced back with a ninth round knockout of Massayoshi Nakatani, and he is hoping to convince the boxing world that his loss to Lopez was just a glitch.

Loma can make an even stronger case now that López lost his title defense once he finally faced George Kambosos Jr. Now Loma doesn’t need to convince López to give him a rematch, and everyone in the division sees an opportunity to potentially beat Kambosos and claim some titles with ease. But first Lomachenko needs to win this tough fight and prove he’s ready to be the best lightweight again. Expect Loma to analyze Commey’s every move early on as he creates a game plan in the ring.

Richard “RC” Commey (30-3) is himself a former lightweight world champion, and he knows this is his best opportunity to earn another title fight soon. This Ghanaian boxer started his career with a 24-0 streak, with most fights in his home country. Commey didn’t win a world title on his first try, losing a 2016 fight against Robert Easter Jr. for the vacant IBF title. Once Commey did win a world title in 2019, he immediately called out Lomachenko, hoping to take him down in explosive style. The fight didn’t come together at that time and in Commey's second defense he lost his title to Teófimo López. Commey bounced back himself with a win this February, and now he hopes to still bring an explosive knockout to Loma.

Lomachenko is a heavy favorite to win this fight at -1100 odds.
