The head of the boxing promotional company Top Rank, Bob Arum, answered why there is still no agreement on the boxing bout between Vasyl Lomachenko and Teofimo Lopez, EsNews reports.
“We will make this fight in April or May. I am looking forward to it. For me, this is an exciting fight. Lomachenko has the best skills that I have ever seen. This guy, Lopez, has tremendous power, and he is younger. So this is a great fight. The fight will happen, but I do not know the exact date,” Arum stated.
According to Vasyl’s promoter, the choice of the venue for the upcoming clash in lightweight division 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.
As we reported earlier, WBO, WBA and WBC lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko began his training camp for an upcoming match against Teofimo Lopez.
Ukrainian boxer traditionally starts his preparation in native Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky.
