Everything is good to go for the tonight anticipated lightweight clash between Devin Haney (22-0) and Zaur Abdullaev (11-0).
Yesterday the pair had a successful weigh-in before their fight tonight in New York for the Interim WBC world lightweight championship, which means the winner of the bout becomes mandatory for the real champ – Vasyl Lomachenko.
Both fighters had no problem making weight for the fight. The 25-year-old Russian and the 20-year-old American tipped the scales at exactly 61 kilos.
The two boxers are undefeated in their professional careers, but tonight somebody’s 0 got to go. Haney is the bookmakers favorite, while Abdullaev has nothing to lose in this fight. Devin is being regarded as the next big thing in the lightweight division and if he manages to get the W tonight, his career will take off immediately.
