"Or I could fight the two-time email world champion Devin Haney if they want that."

Haney replied via Twitter, writing: "Lopez vs Haney 2021 Let's do it! AllTheBelts".

Lomachenko had the pedigree heading into the bout, stemming back to a glittering amateur career that included two Olympic gold medals, through to winning world titles in three different divisions in the paid ranks.

But the Ukrainian star was also coming off a 14-month layoff as Lopez controlled the early rounds before withstanding a late rally.

"Just tried to keep pressuring him," Lopez said. "Just don't give him the jab, don't let him set up. Every time he did want to throw, I had something ready for him to stop the momentum.

"He was on a 14-month lay-off, and I knew it was going to take time for him to catch up."

Despite Lopez's early superiority, Lomachenko insisted: "I think the first half of the fight he got more rounds than I did, but in the second half of the fight I took over.

I definitely don't agree with the scorecards. At the moment, I thought I won. But the results are the results."
