KYLE LOMOTEY will be looking to bounce back with a win after suﬀering his ﬁrst loss when he went on the road to Barcelona in April 2022.
The VIP team fancied his chance against unbeaten Spain-based Colombian Jhon Jader Obregon, but it was an oﬀ-night as he dropped a wide points decision.
Although manager Steve Wood was bitterly disappointed with the result, he believes matching his man will suddenly become easier now his 0 has gone.
Kyle was hotly fancied to win the ﬁrst ever Middleweight Phil Martin Trophy in December 2019, having hammered Ryan Kelly in a round when they met in the semi-ﬁnal.
Lomotey was fancied to beat John Telford, but just a week before the scheduled ﬁght a brain scan issue meant his licence was suspended and the ﬁght scrapped dashing his chances of the ﬁve-ﬁgure winners’ cheque.
He ﬁnally climbed back in the ring in September 2021 and started making up for lost time by outpointing Jan Ardon over six rounds.
Lomotey made it a perfect ten out of ten as a professional in November 2021 stopping Israel’s Nikita Basin in the second round.
Lomotey turned professional in October 2017 and his most high proﬁle moment came on an Amir Khan undercard in Saudi Arabia where he upset local ﬁghter Abdulfatah Julaidan, winning on points.
He had a solid amateur career and in 2012 became the ﬁrst Leigh born boxer to win a National ABA amateur championship, defeating Jamal Akay in the ﬁnal.
