The famous coach Robert Garcia said that he did not even watch the fight between Davin Haney and Yuriorkis Gamboa, as he initially knew that this fight would not be a bit competitive and its outcome, one might say, was a foregone conclusion.
“I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t even watch the fight. I heard that Haney would fight Gamboa, but I wasn’t very interested. I understood that Yuriorkis Gamboa had no place in the ring with Devin Haney. Haney is a young superstar, very smart and fast boxer. I thought this fight would be easy for him, so I was not interested in watching. Gamboa is 38 years old, his best moments of his career are behind. “
“I was on vacation with my wife in Mexico, but from what I read and heard from my son and everyone else discussing the fight, I got the impression that Devin Haney didn’t look very good. He went through all 12 rounds and therefore it was not his best performance. “
