Undisputed lightweight world champion Devin Haney assures that he never said that he would not give Vasiliy Lomachenko a rematch, and clarified that he would be willing to fight the Ukrainian again, but no one has offered him a rematch.
I’ll fight anybody if it makes sense: Devin Haney
Devin Haney and Vasiliy Lomachenko locked horns on 20th May at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, which ended with a controversial unanimous decision win for “The Dream”, which raised many eyebrows in the wake of the fight.
While there hasn’t been much conversation in making a rematch possible, Haney assures that he is willing to fight Lomachenko again if it “makes sense”.
“I never said I wouldn’t fight him again. My dad said I’d never fight him again. I never said I would, or I wouldn’t fight him again. I’ll fight anybody if it makes sense and everything aligns, and it makes sense,” Haney told The Danza Project. “One thing about me, if I can beat somebody once, I can beat them twice. Nothing’s come across my table that makes sense yet, but if it does, then it does.”
After the controversial win he had against Lomachenko, Haney has been the focus of criticism. he doesn’t care so much, because he sees it as part of the job, and acknowledges that it will always exist.
“When you’re winning, people are always going to have something to say,” he went on. “It’s something that comes with it. I get it. I try not to pay too much attention to it, or read comments, or read what they say. Because they always say something, if you look for it they will always say something, why didn’t I do it, or that I should have done something else. They’re going to say something, no matter what it is. It is what it is. It’s part of this. It’s my turn to keep beating the one they put me in front of.”
