There’s a queue for Devin Haney’s undisputed lightweight titles, and the man who would make most financial sense is Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis.
‘Tank’ proved his star power in the recent mega event with Ryan Garcia in which he came out on top of via seventh round stoppage.
Haney has also had a big fight this year, besting Vasily Lomachenko in the toughest test of his career via unanimous decision to retain his four 135lbs belts.
Another man to beat the elite Ukrainian is Teofimo Lopez, who took the unified belts from him back in 2020. Lopez has since moved up a division and become a champion at super-lightweight, but he still has a keen eye on his old rivals.
Asked by ES News, how he sees a fight with ‘Tank’ and Haney going, he said there would be a new champion at the end of it.
“I think it would be a fight the fans would like to see. I’m sure they’re eager to see Devin fight either one of those guys, whether it’s Tank or Shakur.
It would be good for boxing. It would be good for Tank – it shows that he’s trying to step up in competition after his win against Ryan Garcia. If that happens, very good, and I honestly I got Tank winning that fight.”
Unfortunately for fans, it’s not a bout that looks likely to happen next.
Davis is currently incarcerated at Baltimore County Jail following a hit and run incident years ago, and the timeline for his next fight is unclear.
Meanwhile, Haney is being called out by both Lomachenko for a rematch and Shakur Stevenson for a mandatory shot, but he’s also toying with the idea of moving up to join Lopez at 140lbs, with an offer on the table to face current champion, Regis Prograis.
