Top Rank Boxing wraps up its June schedule with a lightweight showdown between former champion Vasiliy Lomachenko (14-2, 10 KOs) and Masayoshi Nakatani (19-1, 13 KOs). This is Lomachenko’s first fight since losing his belts to Teofimo Lopez in October of last year, and Nakatani is coming off a dramatic KO of Felix Verdejo last December. Japan’s Nakatani notably took Teofimo Lopez the 12-round distance in a decision loss.

Betting odds have Lomachenko as a -1200 favorite but Nakatani figures to be a live dog at 5’11” and with good all-around boxing skills. We’ll see whether vintage Loma emerges or if Nakatani can pull off a shocking upset.

The main card of this ESPN+ exclusive broadcast starts at 10 PM ET/7 PM PT. Prelims are at 7:15 PM ET/4:15 PM PT. You can discuss the event here and we’ll have a results and highlights post afterward.
