"Won twice." Haney made an unexpected statement about what happened to Lomachenko
Bill Haney, father and trainer of undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney (30-0, 15 KOs) claimed that his son scored a double-double in his fight against Vasyl Lomachenko (17-3, 11 KOs). According to his mentor, the Ukrainian first lost in the ring and then when he filed a protest.
"You lost. You lost in a fight, and then again. You should accept defeat like a man, instead of saying you're going to go to all the authorities and look for a way to overturn a result that three judges unanimously voted for," Haynie Sr. said in an interview with YouTube channel DontaesBoxingNation, translation of which is cited by fightnews.
Recall that Loma fought his 20th fight in the professional ring on May 21. The lightweight title fight at MGM Grand Garden Arena against Devin Haney went all 12 rounds and ended by unanimous decision 116-112, 115-113, 115-113 in favor of the American.
Note that the refereeing notes, which were published after the fight, caused a heated debate among experts and fans.
Lomachenko's team announced that they are filing a protest against the result of the fight. In addition, the fight's punching stats confirm that the Ukrainian won at least five rounds.
