Lomachenko is on the shortlist of the absolute champion


The absolute champion of the light age (up to 61.2 kg) Devin Haney (28-0, 15 KOs) from the USA, as before, wants to be next to the titled Vasily Lomachenko (16-2, 11 KOs), in the sense of going out with him into the ring and fight. The American has been saying this for more than a year, but things are still there. Perhaps now everything is finally moving towards organizing such a fight at the beginning of 2023.

“This is definitely a fight that I would love,” Haney told reporters in his room. “I’ve challenged Loma for years. This fight is definitely on my shortlist after that. (rematch with George Kambosos next month – ed.)“.

“Loma is the one on my short list, of course,” Devin added, if anyone didn’t understand the first time.

Vasily, by the way, has a new potential rival – “Businessman” from the USA. In early September, he spoke about the fight with Ortiz.

Regarding the possibility of a fight against another top contender, compatriot and knockout Gervonta Davis (27-0, 25 KOs), Haney said the following: “I don’t think Tank wants to fight me or anyone else. [вменяемым]”.

“If you look at his track record, he almost never fought anyone like that. And how old is he? 27? So my resume is better than his. I am an absolute,” Haney repeated what was said earlier.

And earlier he wondered: why is Lomachenko in P4P?
