Haney Targets Undisputed At 140

Devin Haney wants to become the Undisputed Junior Welterweight Champion, leaving him at 140 for the foreseeable future. 

Haney is preparing to defend his WBC Junior Welterweight Belt against Ryan Garcia on April 20. He became a two-division champion after beating Regis Prograis in his first fight at 140 to pick up the belt. That was after he became the youngest-ever Undisputed Lightweight Champion in the four-belt era at lightweight. To achieve that feat, Haney defeated George Kambosos Jr. Now, Haney wants to replicate that success at 140. 

Haney has numerous unification fights at 140. Subriel Matias also fights under Matchroom Boxing with DAZN, making a fight with the IBF Junior Welterweight Champion possible. Teofimo Lopez is the WBO Junior Welterweight Champion. They had been linked with a bout at lightweight, only for Lopez to lose his belts to George Kambosos Jr. 

There is an outside chance of a bout with WBA Junior Welterweight Champion Rolando Romero. But since Romero is with PBC, that it unlikely, as the promotional outfit has struggled to make fights with DAZN. Before Haney can consider those alternatives, he must get past Garcia.
