Devin Haney Retains His WBC Lightweight Title With A Unanimous Decision

Haney retained his lightweight belt after beating Jojo Diaz in a grueling 12 round fight. Both fighters had their moments throughout the fight but Haney prevailed after the 12 rounds.

Devin controlled the fight from the early rounds throwing a lot hooks and body shots. He mixed them up with a lot of combinations. Jojo was getting a couple of big shots but I think they weren't enough. Haney was loosing his steam getting to the latter stages of the fight and that was where Diaz needed to unload more and knock Haney out because he was tired. Jojo never took his chance. He kept waiting for that moment when Haney will let his guard down for him to get a big shot and knock Haney out. But it never happened.

Haney kept his composure and activity intact throughout the championship rounds amid a scare in the last round where he was nearly knocked out by Jojo Diaz.

It was an entertaining fight but Devin Haney prevailed to retain his WBC lightweight title.

The next fight I am looking forward to is between Gervonta Davis and Isaac Cruz. Its going to be another cracker.
