Haney: “The WBC President told me that it was Top Rank that called the Lomachenko-Lopez game a fight for the overall championship.”


WBC lightweight title holder (up to 61.2 kg), American Devin Haney (25-0-0, 15 KO) once again questioned the “absolute” status of compatriot Teofimo Lopez (16-0-0, 12 KO), on this time referring to the head of the World Boxing Council, Mauricio Suleiman.

“I would like to fight for all belts, this is a great fight. I know that the fight between Lopez and Loma was presented as absolute, but it is not so. And I have the right to doubt, because they did not take into account me, the WBC champion.

I spoke to Mauricio [Сулейманом]and he said that Top Rank was pitching it to sell ESPN. And this is not the work of the WBC. As for me, this whole situation further confuses everyone in relation to the champions, “- said the fighter.
