Loma, a.k.a. Vasiliy “Hi-Tech” Lomachenko, (14-2) is still one of the most respected and feared boxers today, but this former pound-for-pound king is trying to pick up the pieces after his big loss last year. The Ukrainian Lomachenko was long known for his epic 396-1 amateur career, including boxing Gold medal wins at both the Beijing and London Olympics. Then the man known as the Matrix went head to head with Teofimo Lopez in one of the biggest fights of 2020, and he found out he could no longer dodge bullets.
Loma never looked himself in his fight against Lopez, and the younger fighter used Loma’s best moves against him. Because Loma analyzes his opponents every move to create a game plan in the ring, Lopez was aggressive early so he won rounds and put Loma far behind on the scorecard. One Loma thought he had found a specific foot movement to cut off Lopez, he saw Teofimo change his motions and counter punch Loma off balance. By the end of the fight, Loma found himself desperate to fight for a stoppage, knowing that a win on the scorecards was unlikely. Now, Loma hopes to put the old formula back together against another tough opponent and prove he’s ready for a big rematch against Lopez. If he can’t, then a move down in weight class might be Loma’s best next step.
Masayoshi Nakatani (19-1) is a powerful Japanese boxer with an amazing opportunity in front of him. He is in only his third fight outside of his home country, where he was 18-0 to start his career.. Nakatani only once fought a fighter as good as the one before him tonight, but this fight comes with a huge upside that wasn’t there last time. Nakatani and Loma have a powerful common opponent— Teofimo Lopez.
When Nakatani fought Lopez, neither was a champion and Lopez was not yet the superstar he is now. The fight went a full twelve rounds, and while Lopez won a unanimous decision, many experts who have watched the fight felt it was closer than they expected. Loma would like to prove that he can beat Nakatani easier than Lopez in order to make a rematch appealing. But Nakatani is not a stiff with no chance, but instead a live underdog who can make this tough fight into a golden opportunity.
