Devin Haney appears to have the world at his feet after becoming a two-division champion at just twenty-five-years-old. Now, ‘The Dream’ has already begun to demand more super-fights against some of boxing’s biggest names.
Haney whitewashed Regis Prograis on Saturday night, with a third-round knockdown adding to an extremely dominant performance that was reflected as such on the cards.
In the post-fight presser captured by Matchroom Boxing, Haney responded to the public’s desires to see him in the ring against two fellow American superstars, starting with Ryan Garcia.
“That’s a possibility, that’s a mega-fight. I have been calling out Ryan for years now, so it is good to hear that he finally wants to fight.
“It sucks that it came after him taking an ‘L’, it was only a matter of time but now he finally wants to call me out and at the end of the day it is still a big fight and I want to make the best and biggest fights happen.”
Haney also spoke about a fight with Gervonta Davis, but believes that ‘Tank’ will not take the fight against him.
“Tank don’t want to fight because if he really wanted to fight, then he would be trying to build up the fight, instead of trying to knock it down or saying that I am only selling [tickets and pay-per-views] because of this or because of that.
“If he really wanted to fight me, he would be making out that it is a big fight and that it is the best fight for boxing, but he only talks down on the fight, but like I have said many times, they [potential opponents] say everything except ‘let’s fight’.”
Haney previously revealed his plans to move up to welterweight, but after appearing so comfortable at 140lbs, it remains to be seen if he will instead opt to stick around at super-lightweight for years to come and take on the likes of Garcia, Davis and the other three champions in the division.
