Lomachenko-Lopez fight postponed again

Top Rank chairman Bob Arum has said that a lightweight title unification fight between WBC Franchise champion Vasyl Lomachenko of Ukraine and IBF title holder Teofimo Lopez of the United States has been postponed again.

Arum told this to BoxingScene.

"Loma-Lopez, we had scheduled it for Sept. 19 as the working date but now it will probably go on pay-per-view and that means the working date now is Oct. 3. Right now, with the (coronavirus) spike going on Nevada we couldn't schedule it even with limited spectators. Hopefully, and we have some time, we're looking to do that fight for 2,000 or maybe 2,500 people," Arum said.

The boxers were initially supposed to meet in the ring in the spring, but the fight was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
