Devin Haney Names Shakur Stevenson as a Potential Opponent After Lomachenko

Undisputed lightweight champion Devin “The Dream” Haney (29-0, 15KO) wants to remain in the division. Moreover, he has two-divisional champion Shakur “Fearless” Stevenson’s (20-0, 10KO) name on his hitlist.

The Dream is looking to dominate former unified champion Vasyl Lomachenko in their upcoming showdown on May 20. If he is victorious, fans can expect Stevenson to go hard at calling him out for a fight.


During an interview on The Last Stand Podcast, Devin Haney wasted no time answering the question about Shakur Stevenson being a priority after Lomachenko.

“Yeah for sure. He’s definitely somebody on the hitlist. But like I said, we got to get past Loma first. Because without a victory against Loma, then we don’t get to a Shakur fight . . . my main focus is being victorious against Loma and then going at what’s next.”

After defeating Shuichiro Yoshino on April 9, Stevenson told the media that he always got the best of Haney and that defeating the undisputed lightweight kingpin would be easy. When told about these comments, Haney explained why it doesn’t bother him.

“He is supposed to say that. He is supposed to feel like that. It’s not a bad thing that he feels like he’s a better fighter. I feel like I’m the better fighter, too. I don’t take it personal. He’s a fighter like me. I’m a fighter. We are supposed to feel like that.”

Haney makes a great point that fighters are supposed to believe in their ability to win any fight. Plus, he is right to not overlook the upcoming task in Lomachenko.
