Hearn Names Favorite in Haney - Lomachenko Fight

Promoter Eddie Hearn has expressed his support for world lightweight champion Devin Haney in a possible fight with former three-weight world champion Vasyl Lomachenko.

“The fight between Ortiz and Lomachenko is a combination of many things. Maybe he [Lomachenko] didn't have enough motivation, besides, he got old."

"That's why Haney is the clear favorite right now. I always believed that Devin could beat him."

"With the characteristics that Hayne has, I make him the favorite. Although, of course, I am waiting for another Lomachenko in the fight with Haney."

Vasyl Lomachenko defeated American Jemaine Ortiz in his last fight. The Ukrainian held his first fight in the last 10 months.
