Lomachenko vs Haney. Roy Jones opinion


If the absolute lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg) American Devin Haney (29-0, 15 KOs) and Ukrainian ex-champion in three categories Vasily Lomachenko (17-2, 11 KOs) still enter the ring soon , then no one will have a clear advantage, and the chances of winning are approximately equal.

Such an opinion in
conversation with Fight Hub TV voiced by the legendary Roy Jones Jr.

“Loma is a technical fighter, he has always been one of my favorites. But so does Haney,” Jones admits. – In favor of Haney is that it will be a confrontation between size and experience. Haney is bigger and (Teofimo) Lopez has shown that big fighters are a problem for Lope. That’s how Loma suffered his first loss as a pro – his opponent (Orlando Salido) didn’t make weight and beat him.”

“And not only is Haney bigger, he can also box,” Roy notes. – Will Loma be able to enter the ring and level out all of Devin’s boxing skills? We don’t know. But to say “Haney doesn’t stand a chance” is just bullshit. It’s a 50-50 fight. Haney’s size and skill versus Lomachenko’s experience and skill. The chances are equal.”

Last week it became known that negotiations began on the Haney-Lomachenko fight.
