Leonard Ellerby, promoter of four-time world champion American Jervonta Davis (24-0-0, 23 KO), said that he does not consider the lightweight leader (up to 61.2 kg), compatriot Teofimo Lopez (16-0-0, 12 KO), the absolute world champion.
“Which side” A “is he? He is not the undisputed champion, as he did not beat Davin Haney, who holds the WBC title. It’s not my business to count his belts, though.
Beating Lomachenko is a huge achievement, but it was the biggest fight Top Rank could ever have. And when Lopez declares that he is the “A” side, it only says that he does not understand how business works. Correct me if I’m wrong: did he lead the show before the fight with Lomachenko? ”Ellerby said.
