The head of the Top Rank promotion company, Bob Arum, said that if, after defending his titles in a fight against George Cambosos, the undisputed world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez wants to stay in the 135-pound division, then the most profitable from a financial point of view for him will be revenge with Vasily Lomachenko.
“I spoke with Teofimo’s manager David McWater and he has several options. In particular, if he wants to fight in the lightweight division, the best fight if he wants pay-per-view is a rematch with Lomachenko. would be good business.
But Lopez may also decide that his goal is to fight Josh Taylor. In that case, I will place him with one of our light welterweight fighters. For example, with the winner of Saturday’s fight between Julian Rodriguez and Jose Pedraza. Teofimo’s fight with one of them will be interesting, “said Bob Arum in an interview with YouTube channel SNOWQUEENLA.
We will remind, earlier Lomachenko said that he did not intend to ask Lopez for revenge.
