Top Rank announces three MAJOR Vegas cards

June 12: Stevenson vs. Nakathila | June 19: Inoue vs. Dasmarinas | June 26: Lomachenko vs. Nakatani

Top Rank returns for a quartet of fight nights at Las Vegas’ newest world-class casino resort, Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.  Fans will be permitted inside the venue for all four fight cards.

The debut event, May 22 features the previously announced undisputed junior welterweight world championship showdown between WBC/WBO champion Jose Ramirez and WBA/IBF champion Josh Taylor on ESPN. In the 10-round junior welterweight co-feature, two-time world title challenger Jose “Chon” Zepeda will now face Philadelphia veteran “Hammerin” Hank Lundy.
The action continues three weeks later, on June 12, when undefeated former featherweight world champion Shakur Stevenson fights Jeremiah Nakathila for the WBO interim junior lightweight world title.

On June 19, undefeated superstar Naoya “Monster” Inoue defends his IBF and WBA bantamweight world titles against Filipino IBF #1 contender Michael “Hot and Spicy” Dasmarinas.

On June 26, former three-weight world champion Vasiliy Lomachenko goes against Masayoshi Nakatani in the 12-round lightweight main event.

  • Great fights coming up! Loma vs Masayoshi Nakatani shoul be a classic.

  • 3 major cards? The only competitive fight is Ramirez-Taylor. But the other three nothing but a one-sided yawn.

  • With an obnoxious name like Hot & Spicy, I cannot wait for Monster to knock this punk ass out.

  • Taylor vs Ramirez is one of the best fights in Boxing. Taylor would get p4p with win here

  • I concur. Great fights, and often. T.R. is doing everything that PBC does not.
    Loma’s fight “could” be competitive. Donaire “could” dominate, or his fight could be competitive. I love those crossroads fights. like Haney fights Linares. Will Haney do what he should? Or will Jorge L. show he still has some greatness left and school the kid?

  • Not sure I’d call them major, since these three are a bit one sided.

  • “Hot and Spicy?” Buahahaha! That’s got to be the most ridiculous nickname I have ever heard in my life, let alone for a boxer lol. Whoever came up with that name has got to be the biggest goofball ever!
