“I used to assume it was a belt scenario,” undisputed light-weight champion of the world Devin Haney says in an interview posted by FightHub, “however now that I’ve received every little thing they nonetheless don’t need to battle me.” Haney is referring to his friends in and across the light-weight division, the place names like Lomachenko, Davis, and Garcia reside. One one who sure DOES need to face Haney is his October sixteenth opponent, former light-weight titlist George Kambosos, the person Haney defeated to change into undisputed champion final June.

“It simply proves how a lot of a risk I actually am,” he says of the very fact he’s but to face one of many division’s greater names – not less than not but. “They care about preserving an 0,” he says of those doable opponents. “They don’t need to lose.” Whereas it’s fairly a cost (one this author isn’t prepared to make), that Haney is being outright ducked by these nicely regarded fighters round him, it’s apparent that the 23 yr previous is a really powerful night time out for anybody he may face.

Nonetheless, it’s Haney who holds all the main belts at light-weight. Anybody who desires to rule the presently pink sizzling division goes to need to get previous the Las Vegas resident first. “In due time these fights will occur,” the fighter often known as “The Dream” says to FightHub. “After they do occur, I’ll be prepared.” The reality is without doubt one of the main battles Haney desires could come earlier than some may assume. Bob Arum, who promotes each Haney and Lomachenko, reportedly desires the the 2 males to sq. off as soon as Haney presumably will get previous Kambosos and Lomachenko presumably will get previous Jamaine Ortiz when the 2 males do battle on October twenty ninth.

Ought to the hoped for Haney-Lomachenko battle come to fruition, there’s little question Haney will take care of the stress of a excessive finish bout the identical approach he’s handled having to face Kambosos twice within the man’s native Australia…with unflappable resolve. It’s what one of the best fighters do in an effort to place themselves head and shoulders above the remainder – they carry out nicely underneath stress. “I’m simply going to maintain beating whoever they put in entrance of me,” Haney says matter of factly. Anybody desperate to show Haney incorrect may have to take action within the ring.
