Vasyl Lomachenko and Jamaine Ortiz are set to collide in “The Big Apple” this weekend. “Loma” has been out of action since his decision victory over Richard Commey last year. Since then, the former champion has been in the military. He returned home to Ukraine to enlist once the war began earlier this year. However, he’s now set to return to the ring this Saturday, with a possible date with Devin Haney hanging in the balance. Standing in his way is the relatively unknown lightweight prospect Jamaine Ortiz, who’s riding high after a win over Jamel Herring.
Vasyl Lomachenko is one of the best pound-for-pound boxers on the planet, and it speaks to the strength of the division when he’s not a champion. “Loma” is one of the greatest technicians in the sport of boxing. He’s not the most athletically gifted, hardest hitting, or anything like that, but his mindset for the game is second to none.
Funnily enough, he will be facing Jamaine Ortiz on Saturday, who’s a great technician himself. The 26-year-old earned the nickname “The Technician” for a reason. While he’s not yet seasoned at the top level, he’s clearly a great boxer and has loads of potential. Funnily enough, he will be facing Jamaine Ortiz on Saturday, who’s a great technician himself.

The former champion has made it clear that he doesn’t care if it’s too soon for his sparring partner Ortiz. It’s hard not to blame him, as Lomachenko is in a position where he’s fighting someone who’s great but is worse at everything than him. “The Technician” helped retire former champion Jamel Herring in May. However, a quick glimpse into his resume shows that he hasn’t accomplished much beyond that victory.
