Too Soon for Teofimo?
Teofimo Lopez (15-0), has the power and personality to be catapulted as a boxing star. Lopez who is only 22, has lot’s of time to grow and evolve as a fighter. Lopez Sr who has cornered his son for years, seems to want the Lomachenko fight the sooner rather than later.
Speaking with Fight Hub TV, Lopez Sr has this to say about getting a shot at Vasiliy Lomachenko: “Well everybody knows that fight is gonna be made. We ain’t going nowhere. 2020, April. We ain’t going nowhere so now he gotta man up and face us. I know what I have and when the night comes he’s gonna be victorious again.”
The Matrix Returns in 2020
Yes, The Matrix 4 does come to cinemas in 2020. We however are talking about Lomachenko as The Matrix. The Ukrainian boxer has big plans for 2020, including another belt at lightweight.
If that means Teofimo Lopez then for all reason we can see this fight going ahead. As a 1/4 favourite expect lot’s of money to be bet on Loma, where he will probably be 1/6 by the time the fight is official.
When it comes to Lomachenko’s next opponent, Gervonta Davis is another prime target in 2020. Davis meets all the criteria, with the star power and has flourished since knocking out José Pedraza in 2017. With Lomachenko and Lopez both Top Rank fighters, a mega-unification bout should be made in 2020.
