Everything you need to know ahead of Vasiliy Lomachenko’s long-awaited return to the ring against Masayoshi Nakatani in Las Vegas today online. After losing to Teofimo Lopez last October, a cloud of uncertainty hung over future Hall of Famer Vasiliy Lomachenko.All eyes will be on the 33-year-old two-time Olympic gold medalist Lomachenko (14-2, 10 KOs) to see any signs of slippage in his game, as he’s coming off a loss to Teofimo Lopez last October.
The Japanese fighter is a solid opponent for Lomachenko who will be expected to easily overcome Nakatani with superior skill, speed, timing and footwork. However, Nakatani’s height may prove a problem for the two-time Olympic gold medallist.

However, Nakatani’s height may prove a problem for the two-time Olympic gold medallist.This could be a tough night for Lomachenko if Nakatani has the right plan of attack and can exploit any lingering shoulder issues the pound-for-pound legend might have, but it looks unlikely. However, that fight isn’t possible this year because Teofimo is ill and his previously scheduled defense against George Kambosos Jr has been moved to September 11th. That’ll be the last fight of this year for Teofimo.
Brant scored a huge upset in 2018 when he dominated 2012 Olympic champion Ryota Murata for the WBA belt. However, he got stopped in the rematch. He is a good outside boxer if a bit standard in his style. Good footwork, a solid one-two and a high guard but lacks any outstanding attributes. He is good enough to be tough fight for most but unlikely to find consistent success against the elite. Whether Alimkhanuly is elite as a pro remains to be seen but he’s a bigger puncher and Brant’s style is something he’s seen countless times in the amateurs and that makes him the favorite in my mind.Before his loss to Lopez, I had Lomachenko as my No. 1 pound for pound fighter. But there’s no doubt that he has struggled at 135 pounds, getting knocked down by Jorge Linares in 2018 and, simply put, not looking as dominant as he did at 130. Nakatani is a good test, but if Lomachenko is anywhere near his prime, he should put on a nice show. I think Lomachenko will be gunning for the knockout, and in the ninth round, he’ll finally get it.
