Teofimo Lopez won the lightweight title in his 15th professional fight on November 14, as he stopped Richard Commey in just two rounds.
According to Lopez, negotiations are being held and there are two potential dates – April 11/18 2020. Teofimo wants the bout to take place in New York.
It is worth noting that Lopez is undefeated in his professional boxing career. 12 of his 15 wins ended in a way of stoppage.
As we reported earlier, Head of Top Rank, Inc. (boxing promotional company – ed.) Bob Arum and promoter of WBC, WBA, and WBO lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko said that his client would definitely not fight for the absolute world championship in the United States of America, ISport informed.
Arum also said that he had a lot of offers regarding the battle. He noted that the fight would take place in Europe and, most likely, in April 2020.
