AND has a new absolute king in one of its weights. The American (1998) Devin Haney has managed to unify all the belts belonging to the lightweight by beating Kambosos Jr in Melbourne and before more than 40,000 spectators – the Australian’s home – in a fight decided by the jury’s cards (116-112, 118-110, 116-112) thanks to intelligence to hit with the jab and footwork of the Californian boxer.

Haney is a prodigy in the ring. In addition to the achievement at 23 years old, he has been standing out since he was very young. He got into sports because he suffers from ADHD and worked his way up the ladder. In his early years, he was heavily supported by the Mayweather family. He got to train with Floyd, being his sparring partner and at no time has denied his predilection for ‘Money’. “He is still the best in the world because of his work ethic,” he confessed.

Against Kambosos he did not find a combat with great difficulty despite the entity of his rival. The The jab did most of the work from the second round, preventing the Aussie from getting into his best shots. Cathedral, because he measured the times, counterattacked and contacted. As the canons command.

Thus, Haney enters history since there are four belts. His name joins that of Bernard Hopkins, Jermain Taylor, Terence Crawford, Oleksandr Usyk, Josh Taylor, Canelo lvarez and Jermell Charlo. Unified champions of the weights, and references without discussion about the ring.

A battle of attrition that Haney took and that makes him the great figure of the lightweight. Of course, now the ‘los’ arrive, because he will have to manage his future. Kambosos has a rematch clause, and the weight has great talent. Even some, like scar de la Hoya, have it clear. “All roads lead to Ryan Garcia,” he said. Be that as it may, only the Californian knows what he wants, which is why he is the king.
