With Jorge Linares formally readied to test Devin Haney for the WBC light-weight title May 29 on DAZN, the Venzuelan expert as well as three-division titlist Linares (47-5, 29 KO) claims he’ll reveal he’s still a significant gamer at light-weight.
“This is my moment to show the world that I still have a lot more to give at 135 pounds,” stated Linares. “Devin Haney is a talented and quick-handed young man, but when I was his age, I had already become a world champion by snatching the title away from a real world champion like Oscar Larios. And now you can imagine how much more experience I have now at an age where I feel stronger and better than ever.”
Haney (25-0, 15 KO) will certainly be taking a legit action up in competitors right here, as the 22-year-old has yet to deal with any individual actually taken into consideration near the leading 10 at light-weight, as well as Linares, at 35, is still viewed as that kind of boxer.
Linares thinks he’ll be a action as well much, ahead of time for the American.
“Without a doubt it will be a tremendous fight, but I will demonstrate that Haney made a big mistake by accepting a challenge that he is still not ready to overcome,” he stated.
Haney- Linares will certainly be kept in Las Las vega, with undercard battles still to be introduced.
