Devin Haney edges Vasiliy Lomachenko to retain undisputed title – ESPN


LAS VEGAS — Devin Haney retained his undisputed lightweight championship with a unanimous-decision victory over Vasiliy Lomachenko on Saturday in a fast-paced fight before a sold-out crowd at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Haney (30-0, 15 KOs) was able to control the first half of the fight with his excellent body work and one of boxing’s best jabs, prevailing by scores of 116-112, 115-113 and 115-113.

Lomachenko (17-3, 11 KOs) closed the fight strong with his trademark flurries from uncanny angles, leading to boisterous boos after the verdict was rendered. According to CompuBox, Lomachenko outlanded Haney 124-110 on total punches and 95-90 on power punches.

The victory over Lomachenko, a future Hall of Famer, was the second defense of Haney’s four 135-pound titles, which he won from George Kambosos in Australia last June.
