WBC lightweight title holder (up to 61.2 kg), American Devin Haney (25-0-0, 15 KO) reacted quite emotionally to the recent statement of the division leader, compatriot Teofimo Lopez (16-0-0, 12 KO), that that he avoids fighting him.
“This is a fucking blatant lie. Do not forget that I asked for 10 million for the fight with me. Everyone saw it. He told Eddie Hearn that he wanted 10 million.
After that, he announced that he had sent me the contract, although we never received it. Tell him to stop this shit. The media must catch him in a lie. This is out of scope. Now my goal is Linares, and before the fight with him I cannot be distracted by someone else.
He called me “email champion” but continues to challenge me. He continues to challenge “the champion by email,” the fighter said.
