Former world champion in three weight categories Vasily Lomachenko flew from Ukraine to the United States, where he will conduct the final stage of preparation for the upcoming fight with Japanese Masayoshi Nakatani. This was announced by the Instagram account LomUs.
“Readiness number 1. Vasily Lomachenko went to the USA, where the final stage of preparation for the fight with Masayoshi Nakatani will take place. Have a nice flight, champion!” – says the publication.
As a reminder, the Lomachenko-Nakatani bout will take place on June 26 and will headline the Top Rank boxing evening at the Virgin Hotels arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In this fight, the Ukrainian boxer will try to rehabilitate himself for the defeat from Teofimo Lopez, which he suffered in October last year.
Meanwhile, Nakatani, who also lost to the reigning undisputed world lightweight champion, closed that defeat last December by defeating Felix Verdejo ahead of schedule.
