    Seems like no one wants this fight.

    Its a high risk low reward, also isn't a PPV machine. With all that in one, nobody will want to fight that, except it's not fear.

    Boogeyman no although it is rather sus how after a shaky performance in the Linares fight no one is after Haney. Diaz, Garcia and Rolly haven't expressed any fondness to face Haney.

    Haney is a twitter troll who has had meticulously managed career, and will never be in a fight where he isn't a 2:1 favorite.

    A faded, and at this point, gatekeeper, Linares made him go full Bambi mode.

    He isn't the boogeyman of anything.

    We try to reserve the term "Boogeyman" for a highly skilled, poorly marketed fighter who is an absolute nightmare to fight, and presents a huge risk to the carefully guided careers of other top fighters. Does that sound like Haney? LOL

    Did well before he turned into an octopus. All I want is to see Lomachenko fight Lopez (again) and Haney.
    Twink and QueenRy are never going to fight Lomachenko.

    I read the post's title and I found myself laughing slowly and without making any sound, a mix between a laugh and a smile. I didnt even realize I was laughing.

    And dont misunderstood me, please, I like haney and I root for him. But... the boogie man....:p

    C'mon man!! show a little bit more of respect for us, the guys in the forum.

    Nobody wants to fight the man. I don't think it's too wild to call him the boogie man... He might not be the meanest or have some crazy intimidating personally, but at the end of the day, seems like all these guys at 135 be ducking him.

    If not he then who?

    I actually think the others did think he was the boogie man, in that he would make them look bad (not necessarily beat them badly) and would be very difficult to beat.
