The WBC lightweight champion of the world (up to 61.2 kg), American Devin Haney (24-0-0, 15 KO) did not stand aside and spoke about the early victory of his rival in the division, compatriot Jervonta Davis (24-0-0, 23 KO), today in Texas brutally knocked out the eminent Mexican Leo Santa Cruz (37-2-1, 19 KO).
According to Haney, Davis’s success is proof that the 135-pound division is the brightest in professional boxing.
“Lord, God! Tank, Tank!” The lightweight division is the best division in boxing today, “the fighter wrote on his Twitter.
Haney himself will share the ring with Cuban veteran Yuriorkis Gamboa (30-3-0, 18 KO) next weekend, which will be the biggest test of his career.
