Lomachenko? I don’t see anything special in him – Haney


Undisputed lightweight champion American Devin Haney (29-0, 15 KOs) has confirmed that ex-division hegemon Ukrainian veteran Vasily Lomachenko (16-2, 11 KOs) is his most likely next opponent.

“Today, my most realistic next opponent is Lomachenko,”
He speaks Haney. – Especially since making this fight is easier than a steamed turnip. But let’s wait and see. For now, I’m just confirming that Lomachenko is the most likely opponent. A fight against one of the best in history? Look, it’s you who think he is, not me. That’s when we meet him in the ring, then we’ll see if he is who he claims to be.”

Lomachenko and Haney collaborate with promoter Bob Arum (Top Rank). He claims that the final decision has not yet been made: “The fight between Haney and Lomachenko is, let’s say, only a preliminary plan. First, I will talk to Vasily, Devin, and also Shakur Stevenson. But in any case, at the beginning of next year, we will give you an unforgettable fight in lightweight.”

Stevenson has never boxed at 61.2 kg before. Is he ready to immediately rush to the leaders of the division? Arum’s response: “Well… He thinks he’s ready. Shakur loves challenges.”

But do not forget that first, the ex-champion from Ukraine will have to beat the American prospect Jemaine Ortiz (16-0-1, 8 KOs) – the fight will take place this weekend in New York (USA).
