If he beats Zaur Abdullaev tonight — from 2am on Saturday morning, live on Sky Sports Action, devin Haney, among boxing’s most talented prospects, can soon become mandatory challenger to the fantastic Vasiliy Lomachenko.
Unbeaten duo Haney and Abdullaev will rival the WBC lightweight title and the winner will challenge for the tournament that is complete that Lomachenko won against Luke Campbell.
Haney is only 20 but has emerged as one of the very exciting up-and-comers in the game. His four fights were in Mexico because he could not get a permit in California. His combination of athleticism and punch electricity implies he has been identified as a severe threat to Lomachenko, the maestro who is working two branches above featherweight where he began his profession.
“That really is a enormous opportunity. This battle puts me one step closer to precisely where I want to be,” Haney said, that has assembled a 22-0 record.
“I will reveal to you a tiny sample of what I’ll give Lomachenko. I can show the world that I’m ready for the very best dogs”
Haney will emerge as a possible competitor for Campbell, who dropped against Lomachenko but still intends to be a world champion.
California-born Haney has to deal with the strain of headlining in The Theatre at New York City’s Madison Square Garden from an opponent who does not intend on playing a role.
Although he has not boxed out of his home nation russia’s Abdullaev has won all 11 of his fights.
Heather Hardy defends her WBO featherweight championship against Amanda Serrano in one of the women’s boxing games of all time.
The winner has a struggle against Katie Taylor year anticipating them but local pride is up for grabs between two New York friends who promised in case the reward was big enough to fight each other. Tonight that second arrives.
Serrano has won world titles in seven weight divisions and her loss in 38 fights came. Hardy has awakened 22 wins and today has a major opportunity with an even larger fight looming against Taylor when she wins.
When Michael Hunter struggles Sergey Kuzmin contenders collide.
Both have enjoyed success over British soil recently – before Kuzmin forced David Price retire in his corner, Hunter knocked out Martin Bakole to declare himself as a hazard in the division.
“The dude is bigger, stronger and has more expertise. But I need to show myself,” said Hunter whose only defeat at 18 came from Oleksandr Usyk if they met as cruiserweights.
