The two fighters have been bantering back and forth for a while now, and will finally meet for a bout that will likely be for the IBF and WBO Lightweight titles.

Lomachenko (14-1 10KO) is unbeaten since 2014 and plans on capturing the IBF Lightweight Championship from the young Lopez. Recently, it was announced that Lomachenko had taken a voluntary pay cut in order to meet the demands of Lopez.

Lopez (15-0 12KO) has taken shots at Lomachenko on social media and believes he will solve the puzzle of Lomachenko. The undefeated 23-year-old has knocked out four of his last five opponents and looks to make an appearance on the p4p rankings.
