Eddie Hearn, promoter of WBC lightweight champion (61.2 kg), American Davin Haney (25-0-0, 15 KO), admitted that he understands the public skepticism regarding his ward, claiming that he is the best in the division.
“As for Davin Haney, there are still many questions. I believe he is the best at 135 pounds, but he has yet to prove it. And it upsets him. He’s aiming for big fights and he really needs a breakout.
I don’t think that meeting with Javier Fortuna is a breakthrough fight. Fortune is a good fighter, but we need someone with a great resume. Obviously, I was rooting for Campbell in the fight with Garcia, because I knew that Luke would definitely fight Devin for the belt, ”Hearn said.
