Lomachenko to face winner of Beltran-Andreev fight

WBA world lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko will hold his next bout against the winner of the fight between Russian Roman Andreev and Mexican Raymundo Beltran, the Ukrainian's promoter, Bob Arum, has said in a comment to Boxingtalk.

He said that Beltran would still fight on August 25. "He has a mandatory (Roman Andreev) due and we tried to get the guy to step aside, but he didn't want to so there's going to be a purse bid in Puerto Rico (today) and we're going to do that fight in August after we win the purse bid," Arum said.

He said that the winner of that fight would face Lomachenko. 

Lomachenko is now recovering from surgery on his shoulder.
