Former two-weight champion and ESPN commentator Timothy Bradley spoke about the upcoming fight for the WBC lightweight title (up to 61.2 kg) between compatriot Devin Haney (25-0-0, 15 KO) and Venezuelan Jorge Linares (47-5 -0, 29 KO), which will take place today in Las Vegas.
In particular, Bradley did not agree with Haney, who felt that he did not need to win this fight ahead of schedule.
“Oh man … I’m expecting a stop. Haney need early victory. Come on, Devin! Do this. Linares Peak has already been passed, and he is ready for what will happen. No, he’s a great fighter, but he’s not the same. So this is a great opportunity for Haney to tell other fighters, “Hey, stop running away from me,” concluded the former champion.
