Absolute lightweight world champion Devin Haney (29-0, 15 KOs) shared his expectations for the match against Vasyl Lomachenko (17-2, 11 KOs).
"Happy to be here. This is what I always dreamed of. I've wanted this fight since 2019, begged for it, called for it, and the time has finally come. When Lomachenko had the belts, he didn't want to fight me. But I sincerely believe that I am a better fighter. Four years ago or now, I will be the winner. Happy that the time has finally come."
"For me, this is a battle for legacy. Loma was the number one P4P at one time. A few months ago, he was ranked higher than me. He's currently out of the P4P rankings, but we know he deserves to be there."
"It's just a battle for legacy. You know, this is really a fight for belts, for gold, for the title of the best in the division, maybe the best in the world," Bad Left Hook quotes Haney as saying.
