After defeating Yuriorkis Gamboa, WBC lightweight world champion Devin Haney did not rule out that he would fight with former division leader Vasily Lomachenko. However, according to the 21-year-old American, the most interesting opponent for him is the undisputed world champion at 135 pounds Teofimo Lopez.
“I want to do big fights. I want to win all the belts. Now they all belong to Teofimo Lopez. This is the fight I want to have.
Of course, the fight with Lomachenko will sell well, it’s 100 percent. He is still a title contender, a big name in the lightweight division. I do not know if Lomachenko plans to go downstairs and what he will do in general. I know he had shoulder surgery.
At the moment, the fighter with all the titles is Teofimo Lopez. And I want our fight to take place, “- said Devin Haney in an interview with YouTube channel Behind The Gloves.
