The head of the Matchroom Boxing promotion company Eddie Hearn admitted that he did not believe in the current undisputed lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez on the eve of his fight against Vasyl Lomachenko, in which the American scored an unexpected victory by unanimous decision.
Bob Arum, the promoter of the former world lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko, shared his opinion on a possible fight between his ward and WBC title holder Devin Haney. According to Arum, he will gladly arrange this fight if the undefeated American fighter wants to enter the ring with the Ukrainian.
Teofimo Lopez (16-0, 12 KOs) announced that he was not going to give rematch to Vasyl Lomachenko (14-2, 10 KOs). The 23-year-old fighter defeated the Ukrainian on points in October, taking away his IBF, WBA, WBO and WBC lightweight titles.
