The world champion under version IBF in a light weight Teofilo Lopez continues to insist that his priority is to fight with the owner of the titles WBA, WBO and WBC Franchise Vasyl Lomachenko. 22-year-old boxer has repeatedly said that in the near future is going to climb into the top Welterweight. Despite the fact that the fight with Lomachenko was in limbo because of the pandemic coronavirus, Lopez is still going to wait to fight the Ukrainian at 135 pounds.
“No matter where or when, I just want to kick that guy’s ass”, – quotes Lopez Twitter account of the promotion company Top Rank.

Recall that the match Lopez – Lomachenko is scheduled for may 30 in new York. Formally, this night of Boxing is not yet abolished, but, given the situation with coronavirus in the US, the organisers, apparently, have to endure the event.
As recognized by the Top Rank boss Bob Arum, a fight between two of its star wards can be held in the summer. However, he still wants to fight took new York.
