Bob arum, promoter of Top Rank, commented that he would like to see a confrontation between Teófimo López and Ryan García, and will try to make it happen this year.
“If I had to pick someone it would probably be Ryan Garcia because it means so much more to one event than the other two, Devin Haney and Gervonta davis“, said Arum in interview iFL TV. “Garcia They follow him a lot because of his social networks and because of his personality. I think if Garcia will face Theophimus it would be a great pay per event ”.
And second after Ryan Garcia, Arum would put Gervonta davis as a rival for Teofimo Lopez.
“Afterwards, I think a fight (of Theophimus) against Tank davis it would be very lucrative, because Davis it has a good fan base, ”added the promoter. “In third would be Haney because it hasn’t developed the same fan base as the other two. (The promoter) Hearn talked to me about Haney, and he’s a good fighter but it doesn’t mean much. You can’t put it in the same category of Garcia and of Tank davis as attractions ”.
Teofimo Lopez and Bob arum want to save, first the obstacle of the mandatory rival of the FIB, the australian George Kambosos.
“We are looking for him to be in Australia where he fights against Kambosos, which is the mandatory FIB“, said Bob arum about the next fight of Theophimus. “Then we will look to fight one of those guys, either Garcia, Haney or Davis. If they are not available, then we will do it in winter against the winner of Taylor vs. Ramirez, which we hope will happen in May ”.
