    Why fight a man for very little prestige on a niche boxing streaming platform for average money, Haney needs to bin Hearn off and get serious

    Because I've heard those rumours.. Kell Brook style.

    Yes I forgot how prestigious triller and kambosos were... Along with Barrios and tiny Santa Cruz ...

    Haney is 1 of 3 fights for any of these 135 guys that carries any type of prestige.

    That's the problem with American boxing... "X" fighter doesn't have enough prestige... Even though he's one of the top guys... Let's fight tomato can instead....Bud I'm looking at you, finally potentially gonna fight someone... But only cus the WBO has forced it.

    A threat yes,
    Hardly a boogie man though.

    No, but I think he's a tough out for anyone campaigning at 135lbs.

    The kid is fast, rangy, a very good boxer, and defensively capable. Is Haney a special talent? No, but he's a very good young fighter.

    Come on man! In the words of our demented president…

    Haney is good and developing pretty well. He’s not the boogie man, he’s not a crap fighter or an elite. He’s about where he should be at this stage. Let him continue to fight and develop. I like the kid but he has surprisingly little power for a guy with his size and speed. Hope he can get that sorted.

    Haney should sack off his fake belt, become a mandatory for one of teo’s belts and fight him if he wants to force the issue. Also needs to get rid of Hearn he’s going nowhere with Hearn

    Looks that Lopez daddy wants to cash out asap and does not have intent to keep Lopez at 135 too long. Money.
    While Ol Bob might easily help Loma to turn into mando for some of belts Lopez does have today.
    Then Lopez and dad will start to think. Where to move and what to do.

    One thing Mauricio revealed is that Haney rehydrated 20lbs or 24lbs after the weigh in.

    So he weighed 155lbs or 159lbs. WTF?!

    Sink. That. In. Let.

    Why would you trust Suleiman? I can see Haney being 150-ish but 155 and above is implausible.

    I have actually heard some rumors about him picking his nose but I do it too and I think pretty much everyone has even if they don't do it like every day. Is that a reason to shame a guy or something because maybe he got like a sinus condition or something is what I'm saying.
