Loma Talks Commey-Lopez Winner, Potential 2020 Options
Vasyl Lomachenko views the winner of Richard Commey and Teofimo Lopez’s December showdown as his next opponent, but the unified lightweight champion won’t refuse other options.
Speaking to ESPN Deportes at the 57th WBC convention, Lomachenko said he’d be up to fight Gervonta Davis, Devin Haney or even Naoya Inoue, as long as the Japanese fighter is willing to move up to 130 or 135 pounds.
“I think a fight that would be interesting and a good challenge would be Gervonta Davis, also Devin Haney would be a good fight,” Lomachenko told ESPN Deportes.
“But let’s see, we must also wait for the fight of Commey and Teofimo in December.”
With the IBF on the line between Commey and Lopez’s fight inside Madison Square Garden, Lomachenko favors fighting the winner so he can finally unify the division.
“What I have achieved in professional boxing has exceeded my expectations, I did not reach professional boxing thinking about being the best pound for pound in the world,” said Lomachenko. “There is talk of Teofimo, but first he has to beat Commey.”
