Devin Haney eyes Teofimo Lopez after dominating Yuriorkis Gamboa to retain WBC title

Devin Haney dominated Yuriorkis Gamboa to defend his WBC lightweight title with a unanimous-decision win Saturday.

The unbeaten American improved to 25-0, defending his crown with an impressive performance in Hollywood, Fla., and live on DAZN. Haney was untroubled by Gamboa (30-4), the judges scoring it 120-107, 120-107 and 118-109.

After his win, Haney said he was eyeing a bout against Teofimo Lopez, who beat Vasiliy Lomachenko last month to hold the IBF, WBA (Super) and WBO lightweight titles.

“There’s a lot of big fights in the lightweight decision,” the 21-year-old Haney told DAZN. “Teofimo Lopez is the one with the rest of the belts so that’s the main fight that I want to make happen.”

Gervonta Davis, the WBA (Regular) lightweight titleholder who knocked Gamboa out in December last year, posted a laughing emoji on Twitter after Haney’s win.
