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 reports.
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.
Vasyl’s rival is still unknown, but he will be determined on December 14. Richard Commie (current IBF titleholder) and Teofimo Lopez (mandatory challenger) will meet in the ring.
As we reported earlier, ex-world champion in super-featherweight division American Gervonta Davis commented on a potential duel with Ukrainian lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko in a quite defiant style, Segodnya informed.
“Lomachenko? His time is coming to an end, but mine is not,” Gervonta said.
“I believe that our fight will take place, but at the right time. No offense. I respect his achievements, but I do not respect the fact that he is being extolled. He has achieved nothing in this world. He has fourteen fights and he is already a franchised champion,” he stressed.
