As the clock ticks on towards Dec 4, there are sure to be numerous predictions floating about. According to our research and fight knowledge, Devin Haney is an early favorite.

However, we all know that nothing is for certain in this sport. For this, we only need to look at Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk wherein the British boxer lost, despite being the betting favorite. Moreover, Haney is also the champion and has the experience required to outwit an up-and-coming contender like “Jojo” Diaz.

As such, come Dec 4th, Devin Haney will either make yet another title defense or Joseph Diaz will become the undisputed WBC lightweight champion. As for our prediction, we are going with the bookies’ picks: Devin Haney to win via KO/TKO.
