##Devin Haney vs. Yuriorkis Gamboa:
On 9th February 2019, Haney faced off against Cuban-American Yuriorkis Gamboa. The latter was the youngest Olympic gold medalist in history and a former World Champion of both the WBA and WBO titles who at one point also held on to victories over notable boxers like Terence Crawford, Robert Guerrero and Daniel Ponce de Leon.
The match was highly anticipated with Gamboa touted as an underdog in the lead-up to the fight even though he had suffered three losses since then. Prior to that, Haney emerged victorious in his last two fights against Tj Vincent and Raymundo Beltran after which Gamboa lost to Adrian Granados via a split decision. Going into the match, Gamboa had a record of twenty four wins with one defeat and nineteen knockouts.
The fight ended in the third round when Haney managed to deliver heavy punches that caused Gamboa’s head to snap back violently after he hit the canvas. The loss was so devastating for Gamboa that he was carried out of the ring on a stretcher.
For Haney, his win over one of the most popular boxers in history made him become more famous since he no longer needed to fight obscure opponents who didn’t stand much of a chance against him. Prior to that, he held notable victories over top names like Antonio Moran and Viktor Postol which enabled him to ascend the ranks of boxing due to his impressive win-loss ratio.
After the match, Gamboa issued a challenge for Haney’s WBC Lightweight World Title and mentioned that he would defeat him in their rematch if Devin agreed to it. However, after the fight against Gamboa, Haney was named the next opponent for Robert Easter Jr in a unification match on April 13, 2019.
According to Boxing News in June 2017, Devin Haney has been ranked at #1 with the World Boxing Council. In October of that year in an interview with Chris Tobin from Ring Talk, he said that he doesn’t see anyone in his weight class that’s on his level and is confident enough to say that he will continue to go undefeated for another four years.
He also mentioned how he could potentially move up a weight class and eventually fight Mikey Garcia who’s at the top of the table at the moment for World Lightweight Title. However, up to date, Devin Haney hasn’t fought any of the top ranked boxers in his weight category.
It should be noted that he is reportedly scheduled to fight Angel Acosta on December 7th 2019. If he manages to win this fight, it will bring him one step closer to fighting Mikey Garcia for the World Lightweight Title.
