Devin Haney, among boxing’s most talented prospects, can become mandatory challenger into the great Vasiliy Lomachenko if he beats Zaur Abdullaev tonight — by 2am on Saturday morning, live on Sky Sports Action.
Unbeaten duo Abdullaev and Haney will rival the winner and that the interim WBC lightweight title will struggle for the tournament that is full that Lomachenko won from Luke Campbell.
Haney is only 20 but has quickly emerged as one of the in the sport. His four conflicts were in Mexico because he could not get a permit in California prior to his 18th birthday. His blend of athleticism and punch electricity implies he has been recognized as a threat to Lomachenko, at which he began his profession, the pound-for-pound maestro who is operating two divisions above featherweight.
“That is a enormous opportunity. This battle puts me one step nearer to precisely where I want to be,” Haney said, who has assembled a 22-0 record.
“I will show you a small sample of what I’ll give Lomachenko. I will show the world that I’m prepared for the top dogs”
Haney will also emerge as a possible competitor for Campbell, that fell short against Lomachenko but still intends to be a world champion.
To begin with, California-born Haney must deal with the significant strain of headlining at The Theatre in New York City’s Madison Square Garden against an opponent who does not plan on playing with a role.
Although he’s not yet boxed out his home country, russia’s Abdullaev has won 11 of his own fights.
Heather Hardy defends her WBO featherweight championship against Amanda Serrano in a few of the women’s boxing games of all time.
The winner has a struggle against Katie Taylor next year anticipating them but first, local pride is up for grabs between two New York friends who promised in case the reward was big to fight each other. Tonight that moment arrives.
Serrano has won world titles along with her loss in 38 fights came. Hardy has awakened 22 wins and today has a major opportunity with a much larger fight if she wins looming against Taylor.
When Michael Hunter and Sergey Kuzmin fight heavyweight contenders collide.
