The duel between Ukrainian champion in easy weight under version WBO and WBA Vasyl Lomachenko and a young prospect Teofino Lopez in the near future will not take place
This was stated by the head of the promotion company Top Rank Bob Arum.
Boxing functionary also said that the fight against the “pet” of Floyd Mayweather Cervante Davis can forget.
If the battle Lomachenko – Lopez will take place, it will take place before the end of 2019.
“If we talk about Teofilo López, the meeting with Lomachenko could take place in late 2019 or in the first months 2020.
As for Cervante Davis, he is an excellent fighter. But he is on contract with al Haimona, so what about his meeting with Lomachenko, you can forget. Al Haymon not allow his men to fight with anyone, except with other fighters.
I have no problems in relations with Oscar De La Hoya or Eddie Hirem, but I don’t even want to speak on the Ele Haimona,” said promoter Lomachenko in an interview with EsNews.
Previously, we wrote about the fact that undefeated boxer Teofilo Lopez wants a fight with world champion WBA and WBO lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko. 21-year-old American prospect, assessed the possibility of holding such a fight and ready to fight with the Ukrainian champion.
“Is it possible to fight with Lomachenko this year? At the end of 2019, maybe, maybe not, to be honest. While I don’t see how this fight could take place. Saying he wants to go back to 59 kg, and I plan to rise to 63.5 kg in next year. I don’t know if the opportunity to fight.
I think the IBF belt will be at the Commies. Then they plan to have him fight with Lomachenko. It seems that I look as young. But the fans and I want this fight. Why not make it a reality?
I think that Lomachenko did not want this fight, but we want the world title, we want to take away his title, organizing a fight. This is something that will come to see the fans, because they want big fights.
I’m ready to fight with Lomachenko, I’m not afraid, I not afraid of anyone, but to be honest, I don’t think this fight will take place”, — quotes Lopez Vringe.com with reference to NBC Sports Radio.
We will remind, earlier it became known, earned Lomachenko fight with Pedrosoi.
