Who should Loma fight next?


PhilBoxing.com



Loma (R) and Lopez.
Boxing fans wonder about Vasiliy Lomachenko's next opponent, which is not yet known. Loma's promoter, Bob Arum, has said that he'd love to make Lomachenko vs Gervonta Davis (23-0-, 22 KO's) next.

Gervonta, 25, is the news today as the WBA "regular" lightweight champion has reportedly been charged with Simple Battery Domestic Violence after an incident with the mother of his child during the Super Bowl weekend.

In addition, Gervonta's handler, Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr., does not seem that much interested his boxer battling it out against the Ukrainian sensation... for the moment. Of course -- as in everything with Floyd -- things could change.

In the meantime, fans wonder how about the WBA/WBO Lightweight king Loma unifying against unbeaten IBF 135 pound world titlist Honduran-American Teofimo Lopez? 🔥🔥

In fact, a lot of fans in the world of boxing would prefer Loma vs Teofimo Lopez (15-0, 12 KO's) next. It would be an awesome natural fight that no fan would want to miss, as well as one of the highlight fights for the 2020 boxing year. Would Loma vs Teofimo happen next?

If not, then there's a third option: unified WBA/WBO king Lomachenko (14-1, 10 KO's) vs WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney (24-0, 15 KO's). Sounds good too? Or not?

However, it is precisely this one -- Lomachenko, vs Haney -- the one that Matchroom Boxing's Eddie Hearn has in mind.

The prolific British promoter feels that Haney is ready to get in the ring against Vasiliy Lomachenko, and that the fight would grab worldwide attention. That much so, that he would love to promote it with Arum. The old fox disagrees.

Indeed, the Hall-of-Famer Top Rank boss does not see Lomachenko vs Haney being neither a blockbuster, nor a competitive fight.

So who will be Loma's next dancing partner, that's what we all wonder.

Your guess is as good as mine, though whoever his next opponent is, all eyeballs will be again on the superbly skilled Lomachenko, one of the very top attractions in boxing today. 🔥🔥
