Devin Haney vs. Jorge Linares

Haney before mega-fight against Lopez - last chance for Linares!

WBC world champion Devin Haney (USA) is one of the big stars of the future!  The 22-year-old wants to celebrate his 26th win as a professional boxer tonight - as well as his next successful title defense of that lightweight world championship belt.  Before the fight against former champion Jorge Linares, Haney is considered a favorite by most experts.

Should Devin "The Dream" Haney be victorious next night, a unification duel against Lomachenko-conqueror Teofimo Lopez beckons him.  However, Haney could face a real touchstone in a few hours!  His soon-to-be opponent, Jorge Linares (Venezuela), has already held a World Cup title several times.

For Linares, who is now 35, it is possibly the last chance to become world champion of an important association again.  In terms of experience, the advantages of the former champion are certainly in three weight classes.  Nevertheless, Linares - in expert circles - tend to only calculate outsider opportunities.

At yesterday's weigh-in, Devin Haney (61.235 kg.) And Jorge Linares (60.78 kg.) Were in top form.  Boxing takes place on the grounds of the legendary "Mandalay Bay" in Las Vegas (Nevada, USA).  The German boxing fans can follow the event live tonight from 2:00 a.m. on DAZN!
