The reigning undisputed lightweight champion American Devin Haney (29-0, 15 KOs) challenged his predecessor, compatriot Teofimo Lopez (17-1, 13 KOs).
However, in reality it was not quite so. This is coach father Bill Haney.
threw a challenge to father-coach Teofimo Lopez Sr.: “Senior, you can’t hide from me so easily! We do so. We deal with Vassily Lomachenko and you deal with the guy who beat Mikey Garcia (with Sandor Martin). But after we solve the turnover, we will immediately deal with our personal differences. I know you opened your dirty mouth and threw it at my son. I heard everything.”
“So now I need a clear and direct answer from you. We will resolve our differences after we deal with current affairs or not? If not, then I will find you at that gas station, or rather near that liquor store, near which you constantly hang out. Did you hear me? I don’t want to waste my free time on you, ”said Haney Sr. and sent a message to Lopez Sr.
With a high degree of probability, we are talking about holding a super lightweight fight – Lopez has already moved to 63.5 kg, and Haney is going to do this next year after the fight with Lomachenko. Meanwhile, the sidekick of the Ukrainian said that the fight between Haney and Lomachenko was 90% ready.
The top prospect in the boxing world believes that “Vasily is better than Devin.” He does not miss the fights of the Ukrainian boxing genius. Do you think Haney and Lomachenko will fight on PPV? The boxer promoter has the answer.
