Winner and Detail of the Match Between
Devin Haney eventually achieved his career high point after four years of hunting his “white whale” when he defeated Vasiliy Lomachenko in a controversial unanimous decision to retain his WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, WBO, and Ring Magazine lightweight belts.
“Lomachenko is going to be in the Hall of Fame. It was fortunate. He was by far my toughest opponent. The WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, WBO, and Ring Magazine lightweight belts were all retained by Haney (30-0, 15 KOs), who also added, “He is very crafty, and we put on a wonderful fight for the fans”
It was a razor-thin situation. Haney countered Lomachenko’s deft movement and crisp punches with bodywork and his jab. The judges ultimately gave Haney the win with scores of 116-112, 115-113, and 115-113. The overwhelmingly pro-Lomachenko crowd’s roar indicated that the choice was incorrect.
But it was hardly a robbery. Each combatant made an effort to impose their will. Lomachenko pushed forward right away despite being known for being a slow starter, but he struggled to avoid Haney’s powerful jab and intimidating stature.
After a few rounds, Lomachenko appeared to have the 24-year-old under control as he rushed in with straight right hands that landed flush and clean. His age (35) wouldn’t be an issue, and he wouldn’t let the stronger fighter bully him.
Haney, however, wouldn’t let Lomachenko build up any momentum. He demonstrated that he would not be intimidated by the skill of perhaps the best amateur boxer in history. When required, he bit down, and when the Ukrainian tried to apply pressure with combinations, he wouldn’t give in.
Despite how tight the fight was, Lomachenko dominated the 10th and 11th rounds. With right punches that appeared to shock Haney, he then used strong lead lefts to make Haney snap his head back. Once more, Haney shown a level of maturity and mental toughness that surprised everyone.
