The promoter is not going to meet the financial demands of Lopez.
The head of the promotion company Top Rank Bob Arum commented on the situation around the battle of champion WBA/WBO/WBC Franchise Vasyl Lomachenko with the IBF Teofilo Lopez.
Lopez is not satisfied with the fee in the amount of $ 1.2 million, so the fight is on the verge of collapse.
“We explained to the team of Lopez, that we will not have revenue from ticket sales and PPV. I mean, what are we prepared to pay him a large fee, but then again, I’m not going to lose millions of dollars in the event because he thinks he’s worth more.
If we make the deal, then abandon this fight and will look for Lomachenko another opponent in the fall. But I’m still optimistic that we will agree”, – quotes the Arum ESPN
