It seems that the promoter of the lightweight leader (up to 61.2 kg), American Teofimo Lopez (16-0-0, 12 KO), Bob Arum nevertheless began to listen to the numerous statements of his fighter, who repeatedly accused Top Rank of not wanting to appreciate him.
“There always comes a moment when a young fighter who has shown himself and gained some fame begins to think that he should go to PPV. As for me, I am very conservative in this aspect.
I believe the Lopez need to get even more attention on free TV if they want to be real PPV stars. However, they decided otherwise. Well, this is their career, and his father stated that from now on they only want PPV fights. Their business, we will provide this opportunity, although I think that this is all premature, ”said Arum.
