The world champion in easy weight under version IBF Teofino Lopez (15-0, 12 KO’s) and the winner of the WBC, WBA, WBO Vasyl Lomachenko (14-1, 10 KO’s) will not be able to meet in September. This was stated by the promoter of both fighters, Bob Arum.
“Earlier working date of the battle Lomachenko – Lopez was 19 September. But now we want to have this fight on pay-per-view, so the new date is 3 October.
At the moment we can’t plan a fight, even with a limited number of viewers. I hope we will be able to put on the arena at least 2000-2500 people,” said Arum.
