Devin Haney disagrees with Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe about it being too soon for a fight between him and Gervonta Davis.

Haney thinks that a match between him and Tank is the biggest in boxing right now and doesn’t need to be marinated for years & years in order to extract as much money from the public.

The Mayweather Promotions marination model hurts the sport, as it prevents big fights involving the only star in their stable from fighting the opposition that fans want to see him against.

Obviously, they’re assuming that because marinating worked for Floyd with his mega-fight with Manny Pacquiao, it will work with their flagship fighter Tank Davis, who has yet to fight an A-level fighter during his 10-year pro career.

Financially, it worked for Mayweather to let the Pacquiao fight marinate until both guys were old. It wasn’t a good deal for the fans, as they paid $100 per household on PPV to watch a boring contest involving a gunshy Manny and Floyd using his normal safety-first style.

You have to wonder whether Showtime Boxing would be getting dropped if Tank Davis had been fighting the guys that fans have wanted to see him fight for the last ten years instead of an assortment of old-washed fighters and bottom-barrel-fringe contenders.

Some fans believe PBC & Mayweather Promotions are protecting their investment with Tank Davis together most money possible out of him by putting him in against beatable opposition and steering him away from fighters like Haney (30-0,15 KOs) & Shakur Stevenson until he’s at the end of his career with nothing left.

“I’m willing to do what it takes to make the biggest fights happen. I’ve proven that. I’ve signed with other networks and promoters to make the fights happen,” said Devin Haney to Fighthype on whether he would sign with Mayweather Promotions & PBC to get the Gervonta Davis fight.

Will Mayweather Promotions let Tank Davis fight Haney if he looks bad & loses to RegisPrograis on December 9th? If they’re willing to match Tank against fighters like Ryan Garcia, a boxer/influencer, and Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero, they’ll gladly put him in with Haney if he’s coming off a loss to Prograis.

After all, if they drag their feet any longer, it could be too late to make the fight if Haney loses to Prograis and a couple of other guys at 140. He arguably lost his last fight against Vasily Lomachenko.

There are four or five fighters in the 140-lb division that would likely beat Haney and send his career plummeting.

“So, we got to see what position I’m in if they were to offer a fight. At times, I could do that, and sometimes, I  couldn’t do that as far as jumping over whatever.

“But I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make the biggest fights happen. I think so,” said Haney when asked if a fight between him and Tank Davis is the biggest fight in boxing.
