Bob Arum Talks Future Opponents For Loma – Venerable promoter Bob Arum is still going strong and he has his Top Rank Promotions on ESPN this Saturday night live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The card is topped by one of the jewels of the Top Rank stable as WBO world super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko defends his world title against Miguel Marriaga.
It has been clear since Arum started promoting Lomachenko that he feels he has found something special in the young Ukrainian fighter. Lomachenko won two Olympic gold medals representing the Ukraine before turning professional and he remains one of the most decorated amateur boxers in history.
Arum’s card on August 5th in Los Angeles features former U.S. Olympian Mikaela Mayer’s professional debut showing that Arum is always keeping an eye out for amateurs with a strong pedigree.
