World champion at lightweight, WBA, WBC and WBO Vasyl Lomachenko (14-1, 10 KO’s) do not go into the ring until the end of 2019, says his promoter Bob Arum.
“I spoke with the Manager Lomachenko Egis Klimas this week and he said that Lomachenko’d rather wait for the winner of the battle of Comm Lopez, if you do not receive an offer on the big match this year. So he’s willing to wait for the winner of this fight – quotes Arum Boxing Scene.
Add that Lomachenko for the fourth time in his professional career can hold only two games for the year.
We will remind, fight for the only missing in the collection Lomachenko belt – the IBF between “holder” belt Richard Komi and Teofilo Lopez on December 14.
Thus, it is likely Lomachenko will fight for the title of absolute world champion in the March-April 2020. Therefore, simple Ukrainians may be more than six months.
