Bill Haney Says Matias Wanted $4M To Fight Haney, Matias’ Team Denies It

Bill Haney has claimed Subriel Matias wanted $4 million to fight Devin Haney in a unification.

Bill made those comments after he was asked about Devin’s next steps following his one-sided victory over Regis Prograis. The ‘Dream’ won every round on his way to a unanimous decision win: 120-107, 120-107 and 120-107. Matias is a knockout artist. In his 21 fights, Matias has 20 wins, and all of them have come by knockout.

He would test Haney’s credentials, specifically if his chin could handle the power at 140. The fight against Prograis failed to demonstrate that too much since Haney’s impressive footwork and speed never allowed Prograis to cut the ring off. But according to Bill Haney, Matias’ camp showed a reluctance to fight by pricing themselves out.

“The kid wants $4 million.’ I told him the kid only made a couple hundred thousand. We didn’t make $4 million to go to Australia [to fight former IBF, WBA & WBO lightweight champion George Kambosos Jr. in 2022]. We made $2.8 [million.] Peter Kahn knows that…He was the manager of George Kambosos, so we were able to negotiate that, but Peter didn’t put $4 million on the table for Devin. It was far less than that. I just thought that was ridiculous, and it was one way to tell me to stop calling him,” Bill Haney said

Nevertheless, Matias’ team has presented a different narrative. The IBF champion has been linked with fighting Teofimo Lopez. Reports stressed Lopez and Matias were in talks to face each other, only for Matias to pull out with a hand injury.

Meanwhile, Matias’ camp denied receiving a Haney fight offer.

 

“Subriel Matías’ team has not received any calls about negotiations to face Devin Haney. Peter Kahn has NOTHING to do with Subriel Matías. Promoter Juan Orengo and Matías’ manager, Pedro Cruz are the only representatives of ‘Orgullo De Maternillo,” Matias’ spokesperson
