Devin Haney Seen As This Era’s New Floyd Mayweather
By Sam Volz: Devin Haney`s decisive win over former unified light-weight champion George Kambosos Jr ultimate weekend has many boxing enthusiasts evaluating him to Floyd Mayweather Jr.
For enthusiasts to get a extra correct judgment of whether or not Haney is the following Mayweather, he`s going to want to conquer the competition a heck of plenty higher than Kambosos, Joseph Diaz, and Jorge Linares.
Haney should be examined in opposition to warring parties like Vasyl Lomachenko, Gervonta Davis, and Shakur Stevenson at one hundred thirty five if he chooses to live withinside the weight class.
I suspect that if Haney remains across the one hundred thirty five-lb department lengthy sufficient to combat all or a number of the ones warring parties, he`ll lose to them, and the enthusiasts will prevent the stupid comparisons to Mayweather.
Beating a lesser fighter two times like Kambosos two times in a row isn`t almost appropriate sufficient wins for Haney to be considered as a Mayweather copy.
The best manner you
d examine Haney to Mayweather is in case youd in no way visible Floyd combat earlier than and also you have been simply basing your opinion on guesswork in preference to via observation.
Haney (29-0, 15 KOs) ruled the overmatched Kambosos (20-2, 10 KOs) and confirmed factors of Mayweather with a number of the matters that he turned into doing withinside the ring.
But in case you have been to examine Haney to Mayweather, it might be one wherein Floyd turned into on the give up of his profession and now no longer in his top. Haney doesn`t own the velocity to be considered as similar to a top Mayweather or maybe while turned into simply beginning out at incredible featherweight.
“Devin Haney seemed like an all-round fighter; he
s one of these warring parties who strikes a chord in my memory of Floyd Mayweather, wherein you cant sincerely devise a recreation plan in opposition to a fighter like him,” stated Barak Bess to the DAZN Boxing Show approximately Devin Haney being much like Floyd Mayweather Jr.
“He seems like any person who’s quite tough to conquer. There aren’t anyt any actual holes in [Haney`s] recreation, and he confirmed that again. He confirmed he may want to blend it up a bit bit extra than he did earlier than.
The judges were given it proper one extra time. He confirmed he has speed, athleticism, and a extremely good IQ, manner above Kambosos. I idea he could flip it up a bit bit. He did.”
“Devin Haney isn
t a run of the mill fighter. Hes a very good fighter while you pressure him to combat. He
s now no longer a man this is going to return back to you. Hes going to pressure you to open him up,” stated Paulie Malignaggi on Pauly TV.
re now no longer capable of take it to him, hes going to make you appear to be doo-doo, and that
s what he did to Kambosos withinside the first combat. Its a fashion that stressed Kambosos completely.
“Kambosos attempted to set traps, however that turned into some thing he
d in no way done, and he didnt appearance comfortable. He turned into turning lefty & righty constantly. Haney simply sat again and stayed on his lead jab and lead proper hand. That`s all he did,” stated Malignaggi.
