The chairman of the Top Rank boxing promotional company, Bob Arum, cannot wait to see a unification bout between Vasyl Lomachenko and Teofimo Lopez, The Ring Digital reports.
“That is a great fight. It is going to happen this spring. We all are looking forward to it. That is a terrific fight, I cannot wait to see that fight. Maddison Square Garden definitely wants this fight, and I am not going to say that it belongs there, because it would hurt my negotiations. It would be a tremendous accomplishment for Teofimo to beat Lomachenko, but it is not easy to beat Loma,” Arum stated.
As we reported earlier, according to Vasyl Lomachenko's promoter, the choice of the venue for the upcoming fight against Teofimo Lopez depends on Saul Alvarez.
“There is no specific venue yet. It could be Madison Square Garden, New York, but people from Las Vegas are also interested in this bout. It all depends on Saul Alvarez. Is he going to fight on Cinco de Mayo (May 2) in Las Vegas or is he willing to fight Ryoto Murata in Tokyo? We will see,” he added.
