In most individuals’s eyes, Devin was fortunate to win final Saturday as a result of he was outboxed for many of the combat by Lomachenko.

Haney didn’t  comply with the script

It seems that the thought was for Shakur (20-0, 10 KO) to enter the ring after the combat, which he did, and name out Haney (30-0, 15 KOs) with the lights & digital camera on them to start selling a mega-fight for later that 12 months.

“They [Devin & Bill] seen me simply now. They ran out of the ring and bought scared. I can’t wait,” stated Shakur.

“Lomachenko got here again later within the combat like a real champion. It was an in depth combat. I don’t suppose we should always damage such a great high-tech combat by saying, ‘It’s a theft’ and no matter everyone seems to be saying,” stated former unified light-weight champion George Kambosos Jr to Battle Hub TV.

“He’s bought an enormous, massive stadium combat in Australia in Australia with Kambosos, which is what he was meant to do,” stated Kambosos Jr when requested the place Lomachenko goes from right here.

“Loma is a real champion. I’ve all the time favored Loma. We’ll make the combat. If it is smart and makes {dollars}, me and him can get it on.

“7-5, I’m pleased with 7-5. It may have been a draw. It’s what angle you’re seeing the combat. Devin is the champion, so the shut rounds are going to go to Devin. However then once more, Loma is a warrior, and it may have gone his method as properly.
