WBO Light Welterweight World Champion Josh Taylor (19-0, 13 KOs) commented on the decision of the judges in the fight for the undisputed world lightweight champion title between Vasily Lomachenko (17-3, 11 KOs) and Devin Haney (30-0, 15 KOs).
“I watched the fight. I think it was a fantastic fight. I didn’t count the points because I just enjoyed the fight, the high level of skill and IQ in this fight, the high pace. Lomachenko worked very well, started throwing his punches much earlier than usual. However, this did not have much effect on Haney.
I think Devin was very good at the beginning of the fight. In the first half of the fight, Haney delivered body shots and jabs. To be honest, I think this fight could really go either way. As I said, I did not count, but just enjoyed the fight. Perhaps Loma could have taken over, but I can understand the arguments in favor of Haney. I need to sit down, watch the fight again and count. Initially, I thought that Loma probably snatched the victory, but Haney’s win can also be argued, ”Taylor said in an interview with the FightHype.com YouTube channel.
On the night of May 20-21, Haney defeated Lomachenko in Las Vegas on points (116-112, 115-113, 115-113) and retained all of his belts.
