Boxing promoter Bob Arum wants to match Vasyl Lomachenko and Teofimo Lopez Jr. in September at Las Vegas' new Allegiant Stadium, Boxing Scene reports.

"A big fight, we are hoping to do it in September with a limited audience," Arum told Sky Sports.

He is hoping that the current restrictions on live audiences will be eased up enough to run a big event with a limited number of live fans in the near future.

"We are talking to the new American football team, the Las Vegas Raiders, who have a beautiful new $1.8 billion stadium. They are talking to us about doing this fight in their stadium in September for maybe 10,000 people spread out. Everybody is working to get these things done. We cannot talk definitely until we have satisfied all the regulatory bodies," Top Rank CEO noted.

As we reported earlier, a fight between Ukrainian boxer Serhiy Derevyanchenko and four-weight world champion Saul Alvarez is in talks.

According to journalist Mike Coppinger, it may take place on September 14, at 168-pound weight category.
