Floyd Mayweather seems to be on his vengeance arc, as he ripped into Davin Haney’s game! Before the Ryan Garcia vs. Devin Haney fight, Devin’s father, Bill Haney, took numerous digs at the five-division champion for leaking sparring footage of Haney and Gervonta Davis. Not to mention, ‘The Dream’ expressed his disdain with the legendary

At the time, Mayweather hadn’t spoken much about his former pupil or the comments about him from Devin’s father. However, that seems to have changed in a big way! As Ryan Garcia shocked the world by defeating the former undisputed lightweight champion in one of the most brutal exchanges on Saturday, Floyd showed up in an interview with Fight Hype today to point out the kinks in Haney’s armor.

Speaking to the undefeated legend of boxing, Ben Thompson from Fight Hype asked whether Devin Haney can bounce back. So, Mayweather reflected on “The Dream” Haney’s moves in the ring, and he seemed less than impressed with Haney’s skills. Having dealt with numerous formidable foes, Mayweather said, “For starters, he gotta turn his shots to get the power.”

Besides claiming Haney’s punches lacked power, Mayweather had a lot to say about Devin’s jab. “You can’t be shooting your jabs like this. Amateurs do this. When you [are a] professional, we here, boom boom,” said Mayweather as he demonstrated the right way! To further prove his point, Mayweather highlighted his iconic fight against Arturo Gatti.

“Every time I did my s**t out there, I just like this because I know that the motherf**ker got a hook,” said Mayweather. He pointed out that most knockouts come from the hook because it comes out of nowhere, leaving the fighters wide open. According to ‘Money,’ that’s what happened to Devin during the fight. “In the eleventh round, when [Devin] got knocked down, he didn’t see the shot coming,” said Mayweather.

Considering all that, Mayweather realized, “So, it’s a lot of things that [have] to be taught to him.” Coming back to the original question, Mayweather said, “Can he bounce back? Anything can happen.” Meanwhile, Mayweather seems to have gotten into a heated back-and-forth with Bill Haney as well.

Devin Haney might have lost his fight, but Bill Haney isn’t backing down all the trash talk. In a recent pinch, the father and trainer was confronted by Floyd Mayweather himself on an Instagram live session. Floyd said, “If your son is undefeated in the gym, congratulations. Congratulations that you got an undefeated fighter in the gym.”

He then added, “I’m an under the lights type fighter. Bill, let me ask you a question. What’s my record under the lights?” Hearing this, Bill said, “But listen, what’s your record in life?” Mayweather, of course, responded by claiming he was undefeated even in life, prompting a disrespectful answer from Bill. “Flexing that punk ass 50-0, I’m 50-0 on these streets. I got love in these streets. F**k your 50-0 with that boxing s**t, that s**t [doesn’t] mean nothing,” said Bill.

With Haney’s luck taking an unforeseen turn, Floyd Mayweather didn’t miss the opportunity to highlight the weaknesses in Devin’s game. However, it’s worth mentioning that Devin Haney defeated Vasiliy Lomachenko, who is one of the greats in lightweight. So, it could have been just a bad day for Haney. Nonetheless, what are your thoughts on Mayweather’s assessment?
