The current undisputed lightweight champion’s confidence is riding high following his unanimous-decision win over Vasiliy Lomachenko. Although that may be the case, Haney’s next steps are unclear.
Haney has been linked with a rematch against Loma, as well as a fight with Shakur Stevenson.
The ‘Dream’ had made a 25 percent offer to Stevenson, which was rebuffed on the basis that the latter felt it did not reflect his true value.
The only other big name left in the division is Davis. However, ‘Tank’ is currently serving a prison sentence after violating the terms of his house arrest in relation to a hit-and-run incident.
And yet, that did not stop Haney from demanding Davis next.
“The biggest fight would be me and Tank [Davis]. That’s the biggest fight. Obviously, that would be the one [I want next],” Haney
Nevertheless, the chance of that fight happening next is unlikely. Davis is likely going to want a tune up before getting back into a major fight, given that he would have just been released.
Meanwhile, there is always a chance that Haney moves up to 140 pounds which does not guarantee a fight with Davis.
This is particularly since Davis may want a rehydration clause against Haney, which is something that ‘Tank’ has become accustomed to against bigger fighters.
So far now, a potential Haney-Davis fight is still some way away.
