    Too early to tell since Haney hasn't really done much yet as a pro.

    I don't want Lopez "gifting" any of these young fighters with a shot at the undisputed LW championship, they need to earn that matchup.

    If Haney beats Gamboa and Garcia beats Campbell, they should fight each other and the winner of their match has rightfully earned a shot at the undisputed champ.

    Haney looks excellent but he hasn't fought top tier competition yet. It's too early to tell how he'd fare until he ups his level of competition.

    Lopez either wins a lop sided decision, or knocks out Haney. It's not going to be competitive.

    Not sure about that Haney has a defensive style to go along with speed that can negate Teo’s strengths.. Also that same reach advantage Teo was able to used against Loma wouldn’t be a factor because Haney has a 3 in reach advantage and 1 ft taller than Teo.

    Haney's good, Lopez is on another level right now.

    Lopez by demolition, even before what happened last night.

    Teófimo is a finished product, a finished fighter right now. Probably not at his peak, but 100% finished as a fighter.

    Haney is on the making, imho.

    If they fight now I would pick teófimo. If they wait until haney becomes a finished product... well, we will see.

    Haney is an average joe, I saw Stevenson spot him 10 lbs and embarrass the kid in sparring and I have never seen the hype since.
    Haney was trying his hardest too but the levels were too vast. Haney has some heart but not much else IMO.

    Teo would whoop him real good

    If Haney's chin is up to snuff, I think that he will beat Lopez.

    Loma didn't earn his first title shot

    Teo is also fast. Teo can take whatever Haney can dish out but Haney cannot take clean punches from Teo.

    Haney looks good, Teo looks good and has two big results. He showed his skill, speed, and IQ (which Haney has) this weekend but also he got the first belt by brutal KO. Haney doesn't have that power.

    I want to see this fight but rate the odds something like 80-20 for Teo.
