Haney Sees Gervonta Davis Fight As The Biggest In Boxing

Devin Haney has named the Gervonta Davis fight as the biggest in the sport. 

Haney faces Regis Prograis this Saturday, December 9, as he bids to become a two-weight world champion by picking up Prograis’ WBC belt. A victory for Haney opens up unification fights against Teofimo Lopez, Rolando Romero or Subriel Matias. Meanwhile, a move up to 147 could also be on the cards if Terence Crawford vacates his belts. Haney, however, has previously stated that he is open to moving back down to 135 to take on Tank Davis.

“Tank Davis. I think that’s the biggest fight in boxing, to be real. You know, we all know what kinda draw he is. You know, we know what kinda draw I’m becoming. And I think it’s a huge fight,” Haney said 

Making the fight at 135 requires some hurdles to overcome. Haney struggled to make the lightweight limit with his fights against George Kambosos Jr. Meanwhile, Davis often imposes rehydration clauses against much bigger fighters. Ryan Garcia was vocal about how the ten-pound rehydration clause played a factor in his loss to Davis. If the Davis fight does not happen, Romero is an equally good option. 

“We know Rolly, but I don’t know where Rolly been at. I ain’t seen Rolly lately. But that’s another fight to be made in the 140 [division]. But like I said, I gotta get past Regis Prograis and then we go from there. But I wanna make the biggest fights happen, the biggest money fights happen,” Haney stated
