So the winner of the unify fight match will be the undisputed champion of the lightweight. Both boxers are promoted by Bob Arum and Top Rank, so it’s probably easier to reach a deal, but Arum hasn’t said anything so far, except He is sure this fight will be this year.
At least one piece of information may be revealed with Lopez’s post. May 30th may be Lopez’s big day, and he’ll be on his way to lightning fast when he defeats Loma. What many people doubt, but he is confident. He disagrees that this fight against the one of the best boxers of our time, Loma is too early. He can’t wait to step in the ring, has a hard time waiting, wants to stay active and fight as soon as possible. According to him, Lomachenko is nearing the end of his career, not much time to write history until he has just begun to reach the top, he is only 22 years old. The fight against Lomachenko is a great opportunity for him to shorten the way to the top he will definitely reach, he wants to be a superstar.
