Devin Haney effectively protected his undeniable light-weight champion in a sold-out match against Vasiliy Lomachenko at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Haney’s specialist body work and strong jab provided him an early edge and he went on to win the match with consentaneous ratings of 116-112, 115-113 and 115-113. However, Lomachenko closed highly, triggering the audience to voice their annoyance at the choice. Lomachenko, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, previous champ in 3 departments and erstwhile pound-for-pound finest fighter, revealed dissatisfaction at never ever accomplishing his goal of an undeniable champion. Lomachenko’s supervisor called the choice a “burglary” and pledged to appeal. The bout was combated at the greatest level and will be kept in mind as a traditional match.
