Huh, I thought he was being groomed to fight Lomachenko. I guess Bob is looking to acquire belts under his promotion so they can unify them under Top Rank. Makes sense because it looks to me like Lopez and Lomachenko are the divisions two best unless Mikey moves back.
I think this is more a business plan than that. He's probably trying to be more aggressive with PBC since they're freezing him out at WW. PBC has a lot of guys around 135/130-area. Plus, I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that Lopez will beat Commey. No risk/high reward for both Top Rank and his fighter.
