Back with a series of blockbuster events at the end of the year, Top Rank Boxing – the world’s leading boxing promotion company brings the world’s top boxing event with 9 matches.
In particular, the focus that is most awaited by the audience is the unification of light championships between “Hi Tech” Vasyl Lomachenko – owner of the WBA (Super) and WBO belts, against young talent Teofimo Lopez – the person holding the IBF belt.
Considered one of the best Boxers at the moment, Vasyl Lomachenko is known for unifying the world championships with the fewest number of games.
After only 15 times, the Ukrainian boxer has gathered 3 prestigious boxing belts including WBC, WBA (Super) and WBO. In particular, his defeat of generals recently are very strong martial artists such as Jorge Linares, Luke Campbell, Guillermo Rigondeaux.
On the other side of the line, Teofimo Lopez is the youngest talent Lomachenko has ever faced. The American boxer born in 1997 is considered the first of the new generation to challenge the position of the puncher who won the Olympic gold medal twice.
In the last match, Lopez only took 2 innings to beat Richard Commey knockout, bringing back the prestigious IBF belt – joining the ranks of young punchers who own the world belt.
Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Teofimo Lopez is the next light boxing match
In fact, the feud between Lomachenko began when both appeared in an event in 2018. At that time, Lomachenko fought with Jose Pedraza to unify the two belts, and Teofimo Lopez was a martial artist to compete with Mason Menard for the WBC – NABF belt.
When they met at the boxers’ hotel, Teofimo Lopez’s father approached and wanted to get to know Lomachenko but was refused. This was then used as a reason to “regain honor” for his father when determined to defeat Vasyl Lomachenko.
This is the first pay-per-view sale of two boxers
