We will remind, earlier the head of the Top Rank promotion company Bob Arum confirmed that the next rival of Lomachenko will be Nakatani. According to him, their fight will take place on June 26 or July 10.
Note that Lomachenko will return to the ring after the defeat by unanimous decision from Teofimo Lopez, which he suffered in October last year. Nakatani also lost to the reigning undisputed world champion in the lightweight division, but already managed to close that defeat, effectively knocking out Felix Verdejo last December.
