Here are five major events that could happen in One Piece Chapter 1072 that fans are dying to see. From Vegapunk’s mysterious ally to the introduction of the island of Elbaf, there will be a few surprises.

Vegapunk’s mysterious ally

In the list of SportsKeeda Leading the revelations is the introduction of Vegapunk’s mysterious ally in the upcoming Chapter 1072. Sure, many theories are now circulating online about this mysterious person, but there is no evidence to prove his true identity.

The real Bartholomew Kuma

Another revelation that will be seen in One Piece Chapter 1072 is the arrival of the real Bartholomew Kuma, confirming that he is still alive and has yet to fully transform into a cyborg. There are theories that Vegapunk is giving the Sky Dragons a real pacifist model that Kuma is hiding on Egghead Island and that he will eventually come out when the time is right.

Garp’s plan to attack Blackbeard
