WBC confirmed on Instagram that WBC Franchise champion Vasyl Lomachenko of Ukraine (14-1, 10 KOs) would hold a unification fight with IBF title holder Teofimo Lopez of the United States (15-0, 12 KOs) in September.

"Vasyl Lomachenko is the WBC Franchise champion and will be facing the IBF champion in the ultimate unification clash in September. WBC champion Devin Haney will be making a voluntary defense against an opponent to be named in the coming days which will be followed by the two mandatory defenses of his WBC title. Multi-division World Champions Jorge Linares and Javier Fortuna will meet in the ring during the month of August and Luke Campbell is to meet Ryan Garcia in a date to be determined. This tournament in the lightweight division will certainly provide tremendous excitement in the world," the World Boxing Council said.
