    Have to see it but that undercard is thin! Andy Garcia in his second fight and Paro vs Love . It's things like this that make you scratch your head when it comes to dazn. San Francisco of all places. Odd. Haney looks huge. Have to think Prograis went to school on what Loma could do on the inside, but he needs to up his output not just getting to the target but also when he's there. Or maybe Haney plays the pressure guy. No just kidding.

    Prograis needs to apply smart pressure from the start
    He needs to cut the ring off & pin Haney in the corners & ropes
    He can't be waiting on Haney, make him uncomfortable
    All that is easy said than done
    I'm hoping Prograis rocks the boxing world win a brutal KO

    Eddie Hearn is in favor of Devin Haney’s move to vacate his lightweight titles yesterday because he feels it gives other fighters in the 135 division an opportunity to fight for the vacant belts.

    Hearn sees it as a classy move on the 25-year-old Haney’s part, as he could have held onto his lightweight belts until his “last dying breath,” keeping them until they’re stripped, which some would argue is what’s happening at 147, 154 & 160, with Terence Crawford, Jermell & Jermall Charlo holding titles they’re unlikely to defend. Haney (30-0, 15 KOs) is going after the WBC 140-lb belt against Regis Prograis, and then he wants to move up to 147 to fight for one of Crawford’s three remaining belts once he relinquishes or, more likely, is stripped by the sanctioning bodies.

    Devin giving up his three remaining 135-lb belts will put those straps in play. Shakur Stevenson has already won the vacant WBC title against Edwin De Los Santos. Gervonta Davis will likely be elevated to WBA full lightweight champion soon.

    The IBF belt will be fought over between Vasily Lomachenko & George Kambosos Jr. As for the WBO strap could be battled between two of these highly-ranked contenders: Isaac Cruz, Angel Fierro & Denys Berinchyk.

    “I think he needs a lot of credit for that because he didn’t have to vacate the belts. He could have seen how he got on against Regis Prograis, and if he lost against Regis Prograis, it gives him the security to come back and defend as a champion,” said Eddie Hearn to Boxing Social, reacting to Devin Haney vacating his undisputed lightweight championship.

    Haney didn’t have much choice but to vacate his lightweight titles because, by his own admission, it was difficult for him to make weight for the division. Further, the only fight he wanted, against Gervonta Davis, wasn’t possible, as he’d been met with resistance from that side to set up a clash.

    Also, Haney had been criticized by boxing fans for not defending his lightweight titles against the top fighters in the division, specifically Shakur Stevenson. Now that Haney has vacated, fans can’t pressure him because he’s in another galaxy now, going after Prograis at 140 and, soon, Keith Thurman at 147.

    “So one, it’s a ballsy move and obviously, a move that shows tremendous confidence but also respect to him for not taking away opportunities for other fighters because sometimes in that position a fight, or their teams go, ‘No, no, no. We’ll hold on to them down to the last dying breath until you have to get rid of him,'” said Hearn.

    “Now, he’s [Haney] giving opportunities for fighters like [Vasily] Lomachenko, like Kambosos, maybe [Angel] Tashiro Fierro, our kid, who’s up there with a WBO to get a shot at the world title,” said Hearn. “So, he’s [Devin] obviously very confident, but I also think his days at 135 are numbered.”

    If you saw how drained Haney looked while he was making weight for his last title defense against Lomachenko in May, it was scary. Haney looked so painfully thin that there was concern among some fans that he was doing harm to his body, putting his health at risk.

    “Maybe he’s sitting there now, I don’t know, 147 and going, ‘I’m glad I’m not fighting at 135 anymore,'” said Hearn about Haney, who has looked badly drained making weight for his last two fights in the lightweight division. Haney has a good chance of beating 34-year-old Prograis to become WBC light welterweight champion and an equally excellent one against 35-year-old ‘One Time’ Thurman at 147, once another one of Crawford’s titles is stripped from him.

    Hopefully, Crawford follows Haney’s lead by vacating his remaining three titles “So respect to him, for you know, making sure that opportunities arise for fighters because he could have held them and seen what happened against Prograis,” said Hearn. “By the way, I cannot believe that fight is quick [Haney-Prograis has come around]. “I mean, I saw the ten days yesterday. Nine days until Haney-Prograis, unbelievable,” said Hearn.

    one thing the article forgot to mention is that emanuel navarrete was granted super champion status by the wbo, so he can use that status to contend for the wbo lightweight belt as well. emanuel navarrete v denys berinchyk for the vacant belt would be a good fight for the tyson fury v oleksandr usyk card if it happens in february. emanuel would be attempting to win his fourth divisional belt

    Good fight for Haney. Actually, good fight for both of them. Prograis could rebuild his promising career and Haney can sustain the momentum for that ultimate clash with Stevenson or Davis.
    Bigger man George, bigger punch!

    Both good matchups (Shakur and Tank). But if Haney wants to stay at 140, he's gonna have to look in the direction of Teo and Subriel. (Rolly's a joke)

    Prograis has been frustrating. Man is a more than natural top fighter falling into a gypsy roaming the field mode lately. Interesting to watch throughout no doubt. But just not sure he can execute the activity on the front foot to offset Haney. He seriously likes to paint his punches and impress just as much with defense and a natural quick reflex. Nice way of saying he can take his time too often. But can also see Haney hesitant to take chances with the bait and counter punching of Regis. Regis to the body is legit.

    devin seems to struggle with his jab against southpaws & regis packs more power than loam & jojo. at four to one regis is worth a bet

    I like Regis and he has come across well in the pre-fight hype. He gave a good account of himself against Josh when they fought as undefeated boxers. I would not mind him winning this bout but Devin has shown resilience against the top fighters and should win this to set up even bigger fights for himself.
