BOXING

WBC lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg), American Devin Haney (26-0-0, 15 KO) commented at the post-match press conference on the unpleasant 10th round of his last fight against Venezuelan veteran Jorge Linares (47-6- 0.29 KO).

“This is boxing. You enter the ring and think that you will not miss a single hit, but in a 12-round fight this is impossible. Especially against the guy who dropped the “fighter with the best defense”, “the guy with the best legs,” the “guy with the best IQ.”

Yes, Linares hit me, but I showed courage and came back stronger. I showed that I am a real champion. Anyway, I need to watch the fight. In any case, I am grateful for this opportunity, ”said the fighter.

Earlier, Haney challenged the divisional leader, compatriot Teofimo Lopez.
