Lomachenko vs Nakatani at a glance

This title fight takes place at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas in Nevada, USA on Saturday, June 26.

Vasiliy Lomachenko and Masayoshi Nakatani's ring walks are expected at around 10pm ET / 7pm PT / 3am BST / 12pm AEST

Prior to his surprise loss to Lopez on points, Lomachenko was widely regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world and the 33-year-old will be keen to repair his damaged reputation.

The fallen champ hasn't taken an easy path to regaining his title, kicking his comeback off against the well-regarded Nakatani.

The 32-year-old Osaka-born fighter has a record of 19 wins and one defeat, which intriguingly also came against Lopez, and notched up his most recent win against Felix Verdejo back in December.
