Eddie Hearn making an attempt to resign Devin Haney
In his final battle, WBC World Light-weight champion Devin “The Dream” Haney (26-0, 15 KO’s) achieved lots. In Jorge Linares, he fought his most achieved competitors so far, he boxed superbly and he efficiently braved his first main episode of adversity. Together with being a beautiful bout for his skilled development and maturity, it was his final battle contracted to Matchroom Boxing. Two years ago the native Californian signed to Matchroom Boxing, who airs their fights through the boxing app DAZN.
Since signing with Matchroom, Haney has staged six bouts with probably the most notable names being Yuriorkis Gamboa and Jorge Linares. All through their partnership collectively, Group Haney and Eddie Hearn of Matchroom have solely expressed mutual satisfaction. But now it’s time to put that relationship to the take a look at. Freed from his obligation to battle for Matchroom, it will likely be attention-grabbing to see if Haney goes elsewhere.
Unified light-weight champion Teofimo Lopez and former three division world champion Vasiliy Lomachenko are within the Prime Rank secure. Would Haney entertain becoming a member of that camp to reinforce his probabilities of touchdown these bouts? There’s a chance however in all probability not a giant one considering how much dirt Bob Arum has kicked on his name. Maybe Haney will head to the PBC with common WBA World Light-weight champion Gervonta Davis on his thoughts. That will be an enormous battle within the division.
There is no such thing as a doubt that The Dream has choices. But if Hearn has his method, he’s already within the means of retaining Haney for the second time.
“We are literally engaged on a brand new contract in the mean time, that was his final battle [Jorge Linares] with us. We’re joyful to increase it, so is he, planning out the longer term and alternatives. He does have a compulsory which is the winner of [Joseph] “Jo Jo” Diaz towards [Javier] Fortuna, however we’d like to make the Ryan Garcia battle or the Teofimo Lopez battle.[On working with Top Rank]… we will make that battle [Haney/Lopez] on ESPN, no drawback! I’m joyful to make that battle on DAZN, ESPN wherever. I’m joyful to take a look at alternatives for Devin and similar to the Canelo [Alvarez] relationship as nicely.”
Solely time will inform who Haney in the end indicators with. But no matter who it’s with, 3kingsboxing will likely be there to report the information.
