«Haney is a contender to be named champion of the year.. He has two amazing fights in 2023. He gave a dominant performance. I'm very proud of Devin, he's a great, great fighter.. He moved up to junior welterweight, knocked Prograis down, shook him several times. This guy is really cool.

After this fight, Devin has a lot of options: Ryan Garcia, Gervonta Davis, Teofimo Lopez. He has a great future. And if we talk about the mandatory contender, then this is Sandor Martin. He's next in line. We will remind you of this at the appropriate time,” Boxing Social quotes Suleiman as saying.
