The head of the Top Rank promotion company Bob Arum made it clear that in the near future Vasily Lomachenko should not count on a rematch with Teofimo Lopez, whom he lost by unanimous decision last weekend in the fight for the title of the undisputed world champion in lightweight.
Arum also hinted that Lomachenko should go down in weight, since fights in the light division are too difficult for him.
“If we arrange a revenge, then I want to organize it after the end of the coronavirus pandemic, when people will be vaccinated, due to which we can monetize the fight. Then we will have tickets and everything else.
Lomachenko’s strategy to fight Lopez was ridiculous. He gave up half of the fight. Lomachenko went ahead, but it was too late. It seems that the lightweights are too big for him, “Bob Arum told ESPN.
We will remind, earlier Arum did not agree with the decision of the judges in the fight Lomachenko – Lopez.
