Boxing fans are about to be treated with one of the biggest and most anticipated fights of this year- the much awaited undisputed lightweight championship clash between the reigning champion Devin Haney (29–0, 15 KOs) and former unified titleholder Vasiliy Lomachenko (17–2, 11 KOs) this Saturday, 20th May at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Since losing his unified titles to Teofimo Lopez back in October 2020, Loma has remained undefeated and is currently on a three fight win streak. Haney, on the other hand, had been the WBC titleholder since 2019, before unifying the belts against Kambosos Jr in June last year, followed by the rematch in October.
“I have been calling for this fight for four years. But the time has finally come,” said Haney earlier this week. “I take my hat off to him. I respect everything that he’s done. I respect his decision to stay and defend his country. That gave me my shot to go to Australia, so it was only right that I give him the shot as well.”
“He talks about the past, but It’s hard to say things about the past,” Lomachenko stated in his response. “You can’t change it. Even if you talk about it, you can’t change it. Only God can change it.”
