Lomachenko is supposed to take on an undefeated lightweight. This match will go down once the whole coronavirus situation settles down. Teofimo Lopez was supposed to appear opposite him at Madison Square Garden for a 12 round bout this May. Unfortunately, that stands postponed until we receive further clarification on the situation.

Meanwhile, The 21-year-old Haney is supposed to take on Dominican Republic’s Javier Fortuna in his next bout. Fortuna is ranked on top of the WBC lightweight division. He was originally supposed to take on England’s Luke Campbell, who stands just below him on the list. But that fight too stands postponed indefinitely.

Haney had requested to fight Fortuna for the title next but had to back out due to shoulder surgery in December. This saw Haney lose his title as the surgery prevented him from appearing at his mandatory defense match. Once it all resumes to normal, we will hopefully see Devin Haney take on Fortuna.
