WBC lightweight world champion (up to 61.2 kg), American Devin Haney (24-0-0, 15 KO), answering journalists’ questions during the final press conference dedicated to the fight with Cuban Yuriorkis Gamboa (30-3- 0, 18 KO), admitted that the great public attention to the division makes him stay in it.
“Without a doubt, Gamboa is the hardest test of my career. A lot of people think that this win will be a breakthrough for me. And he looks really calm.
I feel good now. I don’t think I’ll go up in weight anytime soon, there are big fights at stake, ”Haney said.
