I thought she did enough to win the last two rounds but the last (10th) was close. Really good fight though. Tough ladies

Confirmed lads, Lomochenko v Lopez.

https://www.boxingscene.com/lomachenko-lopez-deal-reached-october-team-lopez-pumped--150880

Quote
The much-anticipated Vasiliy Lomachenko-Teofimo Lopez Jr. lightweight title unification fight has been agreed to.

After weeks of difficult negotiations between Lopez and promoter Top Rank, the sides came to terms on Wednesday night, David McWater, Lopezís manager, told BoxingScene just after he said he and Top Rank chairman Bob Arum finished hammering things out.

Lomachenko had already agreed to terms with Top Rank and was waiting for Lopez to do the same.

The fight, initially penciled in for Oct. 3, will instead take place either Oct. 17 or Oct. 24

Comfortable win for Frampton. He'll need to improve a fair bit if he wants to win a world title though. Plenty of rust.

Carl should just go for the money fights now. No need to slog it out against fighters who need to prove something.


I think he's fighting Jamal Herring for the WBO Super Featherweight title next.

Don't doubt something that's pretty much confirmed from Bob Arum mate.  ;D

He said if Carl came through this fight the next one is going to be against Herring in November/December time.

Donít know whatís happened to Frampton since he beat Santa Cruz. Not looked the same fighter. Thought he was poor given the level of opponent tonight. Did I hear he didnít make weight for it either, thatís not the first time if so. Not entirely convinced he really wants it anymore.

Dillian Whyte has been fighting on box office for a while now, Povetkin's not going to come over for an apple, an orange, a horse shit sandwich and the promise of being another Matchroom show in the future. You've also got Katie Taylor vs Persoon on the undercard which stole the show in New York last year.

But you have the P4P #1 currently not fighting on PPV for his next fight. Which is arguably his biggest and definitely most toughest fight.  ;D

I do get that during a normal year it would be PPV but as Samie points out above itís more for me that youíve got Lomachenko fighting in a massive fight on free to air plus the current situation in the world. It just doesnít seem to be the right time for PPV events.

I agree it's not the time for PPV events but without a crowd it's the only way they can pay for it. I'd be surprised if it does more than 200,000 buys. They might also use the PPV to forecast the buy rate for Joshua-Pulev because there is no guarantee they'll be crowds again this year.

But you have the P4P #1 currently not fighting on PPV for his next fight. Which is arguably his biggest and definitely most toughest fight.  ;D

The US PPV model is different from the UK one, primarily because they pay a lot more in the States. Essentially they're paying £60-£75 and I don't know the strength of the undercard.  Here are Bob Arum's comments on the subject.

https://www.espn.co.uk/boxing/story/_/id/29654068/teofimo-lopez-jr-fight-vasiliy-lomachenko-always-personal

"I think that sanity prevailed," Top Rank CEO and founder Bob Arum told ESPN. "I don't blame anybody here, if this was ordinary, normal times, the fighters would've got what they believed the fight was worth, more money.

"But again, we had to make them understand that I don't have a live gate, which was at least two, three million dollars. I couldn't do it on pay-per-view because I don't have an essential element -- the closed-circuit [showings], all the bars and places are closed. Who's going to buy it?"
