Video: Teofimo Lopez and Devin Haney confront one another at Garcia-Martin fight

Teofimo Lopez and Devin Haney combined hold all of the belts at lightweight — however you choose to look at the WBC situation — and the two were both in Fresno tonight at Matchroom’s Mikey Garcia-Sandor Martin event.

Earlier in the evening, Haney and promoter Eddie Hearn made a bold challenge for Joseph Diaz Jr to accept an offer to fight in early December, with Diaz now needing an opponent with his Nov. 27 date with Ryan Garcia scrapped.

Lopez was in town perhaps mainly to meet up with Hearn while the Matchroom boss is in the United States, as Matchroom will now be promoting Lopez’s fight with George Kambosos Jr, likely taking that Nov. 27 date on DAZN.

Lopez (16-0, 12 KO) has seen a year of his career sit still following his huge win over Vasiliy Lomachenko, as the fight promotion with Kambosos has been an absolute disaster, though it should get done finally as Matchroom are a real boxing promotional company who know how to put on events that don’t feature YouTubers or grandpas.

Haney (26-0, 15 KO) really needs Diaz to accept the December fight, honestly, as there’s just not much actually available to him at that time otherwise.
