Lopez gave an interview.
American boxer Teofilo Lopez, who was supposed to be the next opponent of Vasyl Lomachenko, said that the fight against the Ukrainian will not be held due to the closure of the borders, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to Browser.
“To inform all that the fight against Lomachenko will not take place because it is located in Ukraine. Due to the closure of the borders he will not be able to arrive in the United States. We tried to arrange a match against Devin Haney — but the response from its representatives and has not received. As for the 15 best boxers in the IBF in my weight category, most of them are located outside the United States. It’s annoying,” said Lopez in an interview with YouTube channel Fighthype.
We will remind that earlier American stated that they will refuse to fight with Lomachenko, if it will not be present by the audience.
