Eddie Hearn, promoter of WBC lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg), American Devin Haney (25-0-0. 15 KO), does not abandon the idea of combining him with his mandatory challenger, compatriot Ryan Garcia (21-0-0, 18 KO).
According to Hearn, he will re-insist on meeting the fighters after their upcoming performances.
“Ryan Garcia refused date Devin Haney, which is why we will fight Linares and Garcia will fight Fortuna.
There are no problems, but we will still get our way. If the guys can win, then we will arrange a meeting with them in September or October, ”said Hearn.
