KYLE LOMOTEY is back in winning form after coming unstuck when 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.
Lomotey took time out of the gym for a few weeks after the defeat but was back on song in September outscoring Vasif Mamedov over six rounds.
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 wants to be busier in 2024 having had his first fight in 15 months just before the end of 2023 when he dropped Fernando Valencia but had to be content with a points win over six.
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.
