3Top Rank chief Bob Arum said HBO has given him April 15 for a card to be headlined by junior lightweight world titleholder Vasyl Lomachenko, of Ukraine, with up-and-coming Ukrainian light heavyweight Oleksandr Gvozdyk ticketed for the co-feature, ESPN reports.

Arum said the opponents are not set, but Lomachenko could face Panama’s Jezreel Corrales in a title unification fight. On New Year’s Eve, Corrales scored his second win in a row against Takashi Uchiyama, from whom he took the title last April in a major upset.

“Obviously, Corrales is the preferred opponent because it’s a unification fight and [Lomachenko] is obsessed with getting the other titles,” Arum said. “But there are other options.”

Gvozdyk may fight Cuban defector Yunieski Gonzalez, who many felt was robbed of a decision on HBO against former world champion Jean Pascal in 2015.

Arum said the card could take place at the new MGM National Harbor Resort & Casino, which sits on the banks of the Potomac River in Oxon Hill, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C.
