The head of the Top Rank promotion company Bob Arum said that if the undisputed lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez wins over George Cambosos, one of the possible opponents of the American will be Vasily Lomachenko, whom he defeated by unanimous decision in his last fight.
“If Lopez defeats Kambosos, then there are good pay-per-view fights for him: a rematch with Lomachenko, a fight with Josh Taylor or even Jose Ramirez. So I’m not worried about big fights for Teofimo in the future.
Will eight titles be on the line against Taylor? No, only four. You get either four belts or none, but there will never be eight. I don’t know if a fight with Taylor is the most likely for Teofimo, because Josh has to fight this guy from England, Catterall. When he fights with him, perhaps the next year will already come.
On the other hand, Taylor intends to move up in weight to fight Crawford. There are many good fights. In the future, we will see who will fight whom, “- said Bob Arum in an interview with YouTube channel Fight Hub TV.
We will remind, Arum also commented on the postponement of the fight Lopez – Kambosos due to Teofimo’s positive test for coronavirus.
