Lomachenko-Lopez fight scheduled for Sept 19 - Arum

Top Rank chief Bob Arum has confirmed that a unification bout between lightweight titlist Vasyl Lomachenko of Ukraine and American Teofimo Lopez is scheduled for September 19.

The fight is to take place in Las Vegas, but the arena is still unknown, according to ESPN.

"In talking with Lomachenko and Lopez, neither of them want an interim fight. So we would plan to do that in September, with or without an audience," Arum said.

Lomachenko holds WBC, WBA, and WBO lightweight titles. Lopez holds the IBF belt.
