In particular, the 26-year-old American said that such a fight is possible because both boxers are represented by the same promotion firm – Top Rank.
"I think I can make 140 [63.5 kg] easily, and I think if the opportunity comes before I unify all other titles, if the opportunity comes to face Lomachenko, then I will take that fight. […] It's a possible fight because we're both Top Rank," he told the EsNews sport site.
Ukrainian boxer Vasyl Lomachenko topped BoxingTalk's pound-for-pound ranking of the world's best fighters, regardless of weight class. The World Boxing Association (WBA) also recognized his fight with Venezuelan Jorge Linares as the best battle in 2018.
