Devin Haney-Vasiliy Lomachenko Battle Saturday Night

Unbeaten and reigning undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney faces one of his toughest challenges to date this Saturday night.

Haney defends his title against former unified lightweight champion Vasiliy Lomachenko from MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas. The main card airs live on ESPN+ PPV with undercard action on ESPN starting at 8 p.m. ET.

All four of Haney’s titles will be on the line, as he looks to move to 30-0 in his career. He has held a championship since winning the USBA lightweight crown back in 2018.

“A win would mean everything. This is a fight that I’ve been wanting for four years now and it’s finally here. This is the toughest test of my career on paper, but I look to go in there and have fun and make it an easy night and a dominant victory.
