According to Loma, his age appears to be the main reason.

In the future, if my promoter can make a fight with a fighter from 59 kg (super featherweight division - 112 International.), I will go down there. In order to get a top opponent. I am not going to welterweight. I am not 20 years old, I am 31. The lightweight division is my natural limit,” Lomachenko said.
