William Zepeda Calls Out Devin Haney After Dominant Victory
Lightweight contender William “Camaron” Zepeda (29-0, 25KO) is no longer knocking on the door of a world title shot; he is ready to kick it open by force. After obliterating veteran Mercito Gesta (34-4-3, 17KO), Team Zepeda called out unified champion Devin “The Dream” Haney (30-0, 15KO).
Inspired by fighting on Mexican Independence Day, Camaron fought at another gear in front of a pro-Mexican crowd in California. He was in beast mode from the sound of the bell until the stoppage in the sixth round. Whenever a fighter performs at a higher level, talks of a world title opportunity will arise.
The undefeated Mexican is ranked #5 WBC, #2 WBA, #6 IBF, and #7 WBO, which puts him within striking distance of a title shot. In the post-fight interview, when asked what is next, Zepeda’s trainer, Jay “Panda” Najar, quickly called out The Dream.
“We want to fight all the champions. We want to fight who’s at 135. I think he’s ready for each and every one of them. As of right now, Devin Haney is the world champion, so we want to fight Devin Haney.”Jay Najar
Camaron supported his trainer’s statement by adding his thoughts on the matter in English.
“I’m ready for Devin Haney.”William Zepeda
Team Zepeda will have to wait for a title fight as The Dream is said to be heading into a fight with WBC junior welterweight champion Regis Prograis. Win or lose, Haney will have to decide which division to campaign in.
Zepeda has successfully grown a serious fanbase in the boxing community and is on the verge of a big fight with any of the top names in the division.
