Devin Haney Tells Teofimo Lopez he Can Still Get Handled at 140!

Undisputed lightweight champion Devin “The Dream” Haney (29-0, 15KO) is projected to face former unified champion Vasyl “Hi-Tech” Lomachenko (17-2, 11KO) in 2023. However, He is willing to look past the fight for a shot at arch-rival and former unified champion “The Takeover” Teofimo Lopez (17-1, 13KO).

This never-ending saga continued on social media following a Boxing Social interview conducted with Lopez. He took shots at the undisputed champion and labeled The Dream a Bum.


Those that followed this drama knew it was a matter of time before Haney responded. Lopez, while responding to undisputed super middleweight champion Franchon Crews-Dezurn, caught the wrath of Haney.

Teofimo Lopez taunts Devin Haney on social media

Haney has been chasing his nemesis since before either of them were champions. Things intensified once they both grabbed championship gold and have not died down. Although this back and forth was more tame, there is no denying there is still bad blood between the two camps.


The 24-year-old Las Vegas residence has two distinct legacy checkmarks over Lopez. One: he is a legit undisputed champion and two: he twice beat the man The Takeover lost to in George Kambosos.

Unfortunately, fans have learned that social media trash talks generally does not lead to fights happening in the ring. Will they finally settle things in the ring in 2023? Who knows. In this era, boxing fans have grown accustomed to the disappointment of these types of fights not happening.
