Devin Haney and Vasiliy Lomanchenko clashed in an exciting boxing match that has left many fans divided over the decision. ‘The Dream’ maintained his undefeated record and held the WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO and Ring lightweight titles after getting a unanimous decision victory over his opponent.
While Devin Haney previously signed to promote Top Rank Boxing, which is managed by legendary boxing promoter Bob Arum, ‘The Dream’ confirmed his decision to enter free agency after his contract with Top Rank expired. This comes on the heels of Haney’s critical tweet about Arum.
The 91-year-old echoed the sentiments of many after winning the Haveny fight by saying he thought Lomachenko did enough to win. ‘The Dream’, however, is not the only light star to enter the free world.
Gervonta Davis is another undrafted boxing great. ‘Tank’ recently defeated Ryan Garcia via seventh round knockout with a well-timed liver injury. He was previously signed to Mayweather Promotions, but parted ways at the end of 2022.
Haney’s split from Top Rank is notable due to many fans who accuse Top Rank of somehow influencing the outcome of his decision with Lomachenko. Whether fans will return to such rhetoric now that ‘The Dream’ is no longer associated with Bob Arum remains to be seen.
As for who promoter Devin Haney will sign with, no one can say for sure. Boxing fans will continue to watch everything this professional does.
What did the MMA world say about Devin Haney’s win?
Devin Haney’s win over Vasiliy Lomachenko was exciting but opposites one. Several fighters gave their opinion on his victory over the shiny Ukrainian. Polarizing MMA fighter Conor McGregor partner Dillon Danis expressed his belief that the fight was stealing.
Meanwhile, former UFC double champion Daniel Cormier just tweeted “Boxing” as if to say that controversial decisions are part of the sport. Former UFC fighter Josh Thomson – who was the first man to TKO Nate Diaz – challenged the judges’ decision.
He believed that this was a mistake in the sport of boxing and often resulted in older fighters favoring younger ones even after the older fighter had won.
