The head of Top Rank Bob Arum commented that the world champion under version IBF in a light weight Teofilo Lopez may withdraw from a fight with WBA/WBO/WBC Franchise Vasyl Lomachenko.
Earlier it was reported that Lopez was not satisfied with the fee in the amount of $ 1.2 million.
“We explained to the team of Lopez, that we will not have revenue from ticket sales and PPV. That is, we want to pay them a big fee, but, again, I’m not going to lose millions of dollars at the event due to the fact that Lopez appreciates himself more.
If we make the deal, then reject this match. In this case, we will look for Lomachenko another opponent in the fall. But I still remain optimistic that we will reach a consensus,” said Arum.
The battle Lomachenko – Lopez plan to hold in October.
