“I’m going to put on a dominant victory. I’m going to go in there and impose my will on Loma and show the world how great Devin Haney really is, how versatile, how strong, how young, and how experienced I am in that ring.”
“It will be very, very interesting. We have two different styles.”
“I believe that when you say something, you need to prove it. I have a lot of experience in boxing, and anything can happen during a fight.”
“I just think about what I need to do during a fight. And my goal is to become the undisputed champion of the world.”
