With a fight against Shakur Stevenson seemingly struggling to get made, Devin Haney isn’t ruling out running it back with Vasiliy Lomachenko.
Haney edged out a decision win over Lomachenko at the MGM Grand back in May – a very close fight that many felt the Ukrainian was unfortunate to lose.
On a recent appearance on The Danza Project, ‘The Dream’ claimed he would be more than willing to give Lomachenko another shot at his four world titles – if it made sense.
“I never said that I wouldn’t fight him again – my dad said I wouldn’t fight him again. I never said if I would or I wouldn’t, I’ll fight anybody if it it makes sense and everything aligns. I’ll fight everybody and I’ve been saying that forever.
I know if I beat somebody once, I can beat them twice. It’s never about not fighting hi again, it’s just got to make sense. Right now, nothing has came across my table that’s made sense yet. But if it does, then it does.”
Stevenson publicly rejected a 75-25 split to fight Haney, though claims he is more than willing to take on his countryman for a larger percentage of the pie.
There has also speculation that 135lbs Haney may decide to move up in weight to super lightweight, potentially for a shot at either WBC champion Regis Prograis or newly crowned WBO champion and long time rival Teofimo Lopez.
Whether it’s a rematch with Lomachenko, a fight with Stevenson or moving up in weight for Prograis or Lopez, Haney’s next fight seems all but guaranteed to be another big one.
