Eddie Hearn on the fight between Lomachenko and Lopez: “I believe that Haney would surely have beaten Vasily that evening.”


The promoter of the WBC lightweight champion of the world, Davin Haney, Eddie Hearn, is sure that if his ward had had a fight instead of Teofimo Lopez with Vasily Lomachenko on October 17, he would have also defeated the star Ukrainian.

“Bill and Devin Haney saw or believed that they were the ones who could beat Vasily Lomachenko. Now I could easily say:“ Yes, Devin would have done the same as Lopez. ”But I believe that Haney probably beat would be Lomachenko.

By the way, when Top Rank was convinced that Haney had become a mandatory contender for Lomachenko, their fight fell through through no fault of Vasily. He would have fought any opponent. So I think this is another potential fight for Haney if Bill and Devin are interested in it.

If we can’t get a fight against Davis or Lopez, then the fight with Lomachenko is still very big for Haney. But I believe that the next fight Devin will have against the winner of the fight Ryan Garcia – Luke Campbell, “- said Eddie Hearn in an interview with the YouTube channel Fino Boxing.
