Lightweight world champion Davin Haney says he is willing to fight Gervonta Davis but wants the fight to happen at a specific weight. Haney is set to move up a weight class and challenge super lightweight champion Regis Prograis on December 9, 2023, in San Francisco , California.

Devin Haney vs Gervonta Davis or Shakur Stevenson are two matchups that have caught the fans’ imagination. In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, Davin Haney was asked which fight has a better chance of happening down the line. He explained

“The biggest fight is me vs ‘Tank’ [Davis]. So I would say that one. But Shakur is not too far behind.”

When asked about the preferred weight class for the bout, Haney said:

“It would have to happen at 140lbs. He’s fought at 140lbs before, he beat Mario Barrios at 140lbs. I’m at 140 now. It would make the most sense for it to be at 140lbs.”

Davin Haney argued that Gervonta Davis would not have a problem in accepting the fight at 140 lbs and explained:

“Tank is the type of fighter he says he doesn’t care about the belts. He doesn’t fight for belts, he fights for the money. So he wouldn’t care about the belts at 135 lbs. He would just want to make the money in fighting me. So 140!”
