“Lomachenko is fighting Lopez, that is done,” Arum said “Now the question is the site of the fight.“We have Madison Square Garden bidding against Barclays in Brooklyn and we are also getting a bid from Saudi Arabia to do that fight.“It will be April, or a worst case scenario it would be in May if it went to Saudi Arabia because it would be after Ramadan (the Muslim holy month that finishes on May 23).
The Two time Olympic gold medalist from Ukraine and three division titlist will be looking forward to become an undisputed lightweight champion when he shares the ring with the 22 year Old IBF lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez in April. Lomachenko has the WBO, WBA and WBC titles, while Lopez stopped Richard Commey in December to win the IBF belt.

Both fighters aren't in the same realm when it comes to experience as the two time gold medalist has faced better opposition than the Lopez and his Amateur experience is a river compared to a pond in Lopez's case. However, they both have 15 professional fights under their belts and will both stand a chance at undisputed status come April.
“Lomachenko has all these young guys [wanting to face him],” Arum said. “The Lopez fight is a hell of a fight.”
When asked whether Lopez was ready to face a boxer like Lomachenko, Arum replied: “Lopez thinks he is. Lopez is the kind of fighter than really surprises everyone. I was shocked with the Commey fight, I thought that was a long difficult fight.”
