The second chance of a Ukrainian. Lomachenko may have a rematch with Haney, but will he be strong enough?

Vasily is close to the second campaign for the absolute championship.

It’s been less than a month since the controversial title fight between Devin Haney and Vassily Lomachenko. This was the case when the fight was remembered from the negative side – the former Ukrainian champion tried his best to win, but lost by unanimous decision.

The public considered this result a robbery, experts and other top boxers were perplexed, and the resonance quickly reached such a level that Lomachenko’s team even filed a protest. Perhaps only Haney and his fans believed strongly in a deserved victory.

“My evaluation was subjective, but the actual score is close to 7-5. There will be no revenge because he is afraid of me. He understands that he lost the fight, ”Lomachenko was asked, of course, about revenge, but the Ukrainian did not believe in it.

But now, according to famed promoter Bob Arum, that option was on the horizon after meeting Devin Haney’s father, Bill.

“What can I say? It’s a smart move, but I’m not ready to talk about everything on camera just yet. First, Bill and I need to discuss the details and agree on everything,” Arum speaks cautiously, but it’s clear he’s is discussing revenge.

Bill Haney, who at first spoke strongly against the rematch, also softened his position: “If they offer solid money, then we will take this fight. I had another amazing encounter with the legendary Arum. We are working in this option. As soon as we agree, you will be the first to know about everything.

It is likely that Haney was strongly affected by public opinion and simply could not take it and now he wants to prove to the whole world that he is really stronger than Lomachenko. From this point of view, a revenge would be logical, because the victory was definitely not convincing. For Lomachenko himself, this option is a real gift. Even before the Haney fight, he said this was his last chance to become the outright world champion, and here was another chance. The Ukrainian team will take advantage of that opportunity.

Lomachenko will have another “round” with Haney! The Ukrainians filed an appeal against the outcome of the battle.

The main question is, does Lomachenko have the opportunity for such a convincing rematch that he will definitely take the belts from him and inflict Haney’s first loss of his professional career? If he can keep up what he showed in the first fight, then yes, definitely. Lomachenko even then interrupted Haney, including with power shots, and passed the last rounds of the championship so convincingly that at some point one might believe in an early finish.

In fact, Haney offered nothing supernatural. Unless it worked well in the body. Lomachenko summed up after the fight that Devin’s immediate outlook is to move up in weight and fight regular fighters. And another undefeated top wrestler, Shakur Stevenson, after seeing a performance by Haney, for example, has no doubt that he will break it.

“This fight will never happen.” Haney chickened out and won’t give Lomachenko a rematch?

Haney has a choice to make: show everyone he’s a well-deserved champion, and in the event, keep “0” in the “loss” column, or go the other way. Arum is ready to offer Devin and other rivals: Shakur Stevenson or Teofimo Lopez. But the option with the latter has already been closed: López said that he was leaving and that he would return only for a sum of nine figures.

It seems more logical to take the fight with Stevenson, but if Haney wants to settle all questions and strengthen the legacy, then Lomachenko must be given a rematch. And here already all the cards will be in the hands of Vasily.
