Absolute lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg) American Devin Haney (29-0, 15 KOs) and former division leader Ukrainian Vasily Lomachenko (17-2, 11 KOs) are preparing for a head-to-head fight. The fight is likely to take place in May. It is possible that the fight will not be in the United States, but in Saudi Arabia.
British age heavyweight Derek Chisora (33-13, 23 KOs) is not
doubts in the victory of the reigning champion: “Why him? I watched him go to Australia twice and beat up a local guy (George Kambosos) there. Moreover, they all tried to interfere with him by talking about the fact that there would be no coach father in the corner. To be honest, I myself thought that this could be a decisive factor. But do you know what happened? God took Devin under his wing. And Haney just got on a plane, flew over there, beat up their guy, and came back. And that guy is still sitting with his head in his hands, and still can’t understand: “What the hell happened?”
Chisora is confident that the same will happen in the fight with Lomachenko: “How did he beat the previous opponent? Yes, he simply outwitted him. Devin isn’t trying to win over the crowd with mahachi. He outplays his opponents. And it all starts with the jab. Eat it! And so every time. Any attempt by the opponent to get close ends for him with a missed jab. Eat this one more time! And one more time! And you know what? It works. Jab rules. He starts with the jab and everything else just falls into place.”
Do you know why Haney vs Lomachenko hasn’t been announced yet? The champion has the answer. By the way, he also has no doubts about victory: “I will show how much I am higher than his levels.”
