    From the Scene. Whoever wins the Vasiliy Lomachenko-Teofimo Lopez fight won't owe his opponent a rematch. Lopez confirmed during a recent appearance on the DAZN/SiriusXM "Ak And Barak Show" that there is not a rematch clause in the contracts for their lightweight title unification fight.

    Thoughts? So pretty much it's all or nothing and the winner of this fight will have to fight Tank or Haney.

    Very interesting. Most big fights do. Guys like Pac and Floyd and Clenelo had rematch clauses. I wonder who said no.

    Have to fight Haney? Both of them would toy with Haney, having to fight Tank would be much harder.

    If Loma loses he`ll be forgotten and his legacy will be shattered, nobody will touch him with a barge pole after if he gets beat.

    What makes you think that? I think that's a ridiculous assumption. Would the same be said about Lopez if he were to lose badly to Loma?

    Nobody would want to figt Loma because it would be high risk and low reward, Lopez is much more beatable and if he wins it would be due to his power.

    Loma is already 32 but Lopez is only 23 he has time to rebuild.

    Nah I don't see that happening.
    Age doesn't mean much. It depends on how mentally tough Lopez really is. If Lopez gets dominated in humiliating fashion and quits on his stool then I'm not sure if he would be able to fully recover from a bad loss, given how much he's been talking.

    Not surprising. Lopez wanted to move up for long time and Loma, on the other side, never intended to go to 140.

    This is a make or break fight for both sides with the bigger risk on Loma's side. But I guess, he doesn't care about it. He just wanted a good fight and make history. And making history is about taking the risk.

    Age does matter because Lopez has more time to rebuild if he loses.

    I'm fine with this. A rematch only needs to happen if it's a split decision or too controversial to let go IMO.

    Good, the less rematches clauses in boxing the better for all. Too much leverage for the money fighters.

    Alot of balls for Loma to take this fight without a rematch clause. No matter how talented you think he is if I he loses this fight it's going to be hard for him to cement any kind of lasting legacy for himself with 2 losses in less than 20 fights and no marquee wins on his resume

    Rigondeaux? Handed him his first loss. And a KO one at that. Not just beat him— toyed with and humiliated him.
