Devin Haney stands “no probability” against Gervonta Davis says Jeff Mayweather

By Daddy: Jeff Mayweather feels that with the best way Devin Haney fought against Vasyl Lomachenko final Saturday, he stands “no probability” of defeating Gervonta Davis if these two combat subsequent.

Jeff says the undisputed light-weight champion Haney (30-0, 15 KOs)  took too many possibilities against Lomachenko, and this resulted in him getting hit lots.

As Jeff factors out, it solely takes one shot from a strong puncher like Tank so that you can be knocked out. For Haney to beat Gervonta (29-0, 27 KOs), he must combat the “excellent combat” and be extraordinarily “exact” together with his punches as a result of he’ll get countered and brought out by Tank.

It’s unlikely that Haney can repair his porous protection to the place he can field his option to a 12 spherical unanimous determination against Tank with out getting clipped ultimately.

Even with the identical judging crew that labored his combat against Lomachenko final Saturday evening, it will be subsequent to unattainable for Haney to see the ultimate bell for the judges to present him one other controversial determination.

Lomachenko will probably be king at 130

“I feel lots of people obtained caught up in Lomachenko’s age and Lomachenko being laid off and his dedication to his nation and every little thing. I feel everyone obtained caught up in that, and so they thought,” mentioned Jeff Mayweather to Battle Hub TV, giving his two cents on the Devin Haney vs. Vasily Lomachenko combat.

“I feel early on, Lomachenko did precisely what he did when he was combating Teofimo. I imply, he did nothing, after which he did come again, and he began to win rounds.

“When he did, he appeared actually, actually spectacular.  I feel that made folks overlook about that he was freely giving rounds too. I nonetheless thought the combat was shut sufficient for both man to win. That’s how shut the combat was to me.

“If they’d mentioned, ‘Lomachenko,’ it will have been advantageous. I believed that was a bit of an excessive amount of [116-112 score by Judge Dave Moretti] as a result of I believed the combat was extraordinarily shut. I believed that if Lomachenko had stepped on the gasoline within the final spherical, he most likely would have gained the combat.

“That’s how shut it was to me. I believed both man may have gained. What Devin did within the final spherical was type of like shifting it his means as a result of whoever needed to win the final spherical was going to win the combat.

I feel what he confirmed at present actually resurrected his profession,” mentioned Jeff in regards to the 35-year-old Lomachenko. “I feel lots of people thought that Lomachenko was going to be completed as a result of Devin was a lot greater. Not essentially stronger however an even bigger fighter, and that he was going to annihilate him.

“He confirmed that he belongs, he confirmed that he nonetheless belongs. The man has been laid off for a complete 12 months and haven’t completed nothing in Boxing for a complete 12 months, doing stuff for his nation. No person knew what he had left,” mentioned Jeff about Loma.

“There’s no disgrace in dropping to Devin, and there’s actually no disgrace as a result of the combat was shut sufficient for him to even win,” Mayweather mentioned. “So, I feel the very best route for him is to most likely take a look at as a result of he did actually good for 135 kilos.

“I feel if he drops again all the way down to 130, he’ll be king once more,” Jeff mentioned about Lomachenko. “I feel together with his efficiency, his inventory rises. His inventory went again up. Proper now, it’s only a matter of what weight division he chooses, and that’s 130 or 135. He’ll be alright in both one,” mentioned Jeff.

Haney has “no probability” against Gervonta Davis

“I feel that’s an incredible combat. That will be the proper combat for Boxing,” mentioned Jeff a couple of bout between Gervonta Davis and Haney. “From the Devin that we noticed tonight, he’d should probability against Tank.

“Due to the best way he fought tonight. He took extra dangers than he wanted to. With Tank, it solely takes one punch. So while you’re combating Tank, you’re going to should be exact.

“You’re going to should be exact with every little thing that you simply do as a result of if he hit you one time, the combat goes to be over. So that you’re going to should combat at a protected distance, and also you’re going to have to do this the entire complete combat.

“Even Devin himself, he mentioned he modified his combating fashion tonight only for Lomachenko. Devin is sensible sufficient to know that he can’t combat that very same means with Tank.

“Leaving the belts off the desk, the one factor is that this. Both man can beat both man, however Tank is the one man that’s completely different from all the remainder as a result of he has energy, and he has one-punch knockout energy.

“So, Devin might be forward of him by ten rounds, and Tank can hit you one time, and it could be over. The identical factor with Shakur, however I’m not saying that they’ll’t combat an ideal combat. These are two of the very best boxers on the market at present.

“If anybody has an opportunity of beating Tank, it’s Shakur Stevenson, however we’re going to should combat at a protected distance. They’re going to should preserve the space.

“That’s a very powerful a part of combating Tank. Staying your distance and staying out of the vary of being caught as a result of as soon as he hits you, it’s going to be over with,” mentioned Jeff.
