Vasiliy Lomachenko believes Devin Haney vs Gervonta Davis bout could never happen, claims “The Dream” would change divisions: ‘‘He’ll go up to 140lbs’’

For Devin Haney, the choices for his next opponent are numerous at the moment. Haney wouldn’t take a chance against Gervonta Davis, according to his most recent ring opponent Vasiliy Lomachenko. 

Tank is currently the WBA super featherweight champion and Dream is the current undisputed lightweight champion. Hence a matchup involving two of the finest boxers at the moment would be a treat to watch for boxing enthusiasts. 

However, Lomachenko in a recent interview expressed his thoughts on this potential matchup by saying, “It’ll never happen because now he [Haney] understands his level. Now I think he’ll go up to 140lbs and fight just regular boxers,”

Feud between Vasiliy Lomachenko and Devin Haney explained

There’s been a lot of controversy regarding the decision of the fight between Haney and Vasiliy. According to many boxing analysts and fans, the decision should have gone in Lom’s way. The Ukrainian boxer also addressed the issue in his most recent interview. 

“I watched a repeat of this fight, and my score was 8-4. My score was subjective, but real score is close to 7-5. After twelve rounds, I was sure I won this fight, and I was very happy.” Loma said. 

However, Lomachenko isn’t optimistic about a rematch as he thinks Devin is scared of taking such a risk. The two-time Olympic gold medalist thinks Devin should go for a rematch to protect his legacy. 

“He was talking about legacy before the fight. But if you’re talking about legacy, you need to make a rematch. He needs to make his revenge in a rematch, but it’s all in his hands.” Loma added.
