Eddie Hearn, promoter of the “regular” WBC lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg), American Davin Haney (24-0-0, 15 KO), said on social networks that he is ready to organize a fight with the leader of the division Teofimo Lopez (16- 0-0, 12 KO), yesterday in Las Vegas who won a strong-willed victory over the Ukrainian star Vasyl Lomachenko (14-2-0, 10 KO).
But first, Haney needs to overcome the obstacle in the person of the Cuban veteran Yuriorkis Gamboa (30-3-0, 18 KO), with whom the fight will take place 7th November in the USA.
“Just spoke to Devin Haney. Of course we can do it! But first he must take care of the fight with Gamboa, which will take place in three weeks,” – wrote Hearn on his Twitter.
It is worth noting that Lopez himself expressed interest in this meeting.
