Well, Haney did not mock Canelo directly. However, praising DAZN at such a sensitive time is a clear mockery towards the Mexican celebrity.

Devin Haney has no complaints about the US broadcaster – DAZN

Haney posted a picture of himself, showcasing a chunk of dollars in his hand. Being a TMT prodigy, it is no surprise to the fans. Haney, alongside his mentor Floyd Mayweather, loves to flex his riches. However, the caption he put has grabbed a lot of attention.

“DAZN TOOK CARE OF THE CHAMP… I CANT COMPLAIN!” wrote the lightweight champion.

It can also be thought of as a battle between TMT and Golden Boy promotions, as they have shared the rivalry for a long time. Oscar De La Hoya and Mayweather have always been compared for their in-ring specialties and also their abilities as businessmen.

That said, their prodigies have also shared a similar rivalry between them for years. Golden Boy’s Ryan Garcia and TMT’s Gervonta Davis, Devin Haney has always spat venom at each other.

This time, Haney took the lead by mocking Golden Boy’s biggest superstar, Canelo Alvarez.

However, De La Hoya has desired to come to terms and settle up things with Alvarez. Thus, it might bring back the Mexican in action soon. But for the timing, Canelo Alvarez still does not have an official opponent.
