Haney suddenly talked about a rematch with Lomachenko
The light-welterweight champion of the world Devin Haney (30-0, 15 KO) unexpectedly changed the rhetoric of his statements about the rematch against Vasyl Lomachenko (17-3, 11 KO). After the controversial win on May 20, the American flatly refused a rematch with the Ukrainian, but now he didn't rule it out.
In the interview to YouTube channel The Danza Project Haney emphasized that the second fight with the native of Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky should make sense for his career. The holder of all four division belts promised to share his plans shortly.
"I never said I wouldn't fight Lomachenko again, my father said that. I never said I would or wouldn't do it. I'll fight anybody, if it makes sense and everything comes together. I'll fight anybody, and I've always said that. I know that if I beat somebody once, I can beat them a second time. It's never about not fighting Lomachenko again, it just has to make sense. Right now there's nothing in front of me that makes sense to me," Haynie said.
We remind that Vasyl Lomachenko lost to Devin Haney by unanimous decision of the judges, which caused a lot of controversy among fans and experts. United heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) called it a robbery from the American side.
American cutman and trainer Russ Anber said that he reviewed Vasyl and Devin's fight three times and every time he gave the win to Lomachenko. And the World Boxing Organization (WBO) deprived the Ukrainian of the first place in its ranking.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the day before Devin Haney was bullied on Twitter after he announced his support for Ukraine and his intention to donate to our country.
