Adrien Broner often shares his predictions for huge fights, just like his prediction for Errol Spence Jr. vs. Terence Crawford. Though at that time he chose the wrong horse as he called for Spence Jr.’s victory which ended up being false. For the fight between Haney and Prograis, he is predicting a much closer encounter. However, he still thinks Haney will be able to win in the end.

Devin Haney explains the reasoning behind him moving up in weight

In the midst of anticipation for his debut at 140lbs against Prograis, Devin Haney sat down with Stephen A. Smith to discuss the pivotal shift in weight classes. Despite undefeated contenders at 135lbs, Haney explained, “Shakur could have been my last fight at 135. I sent him an offer; he turned it down.” This rejection set the stage for Haney’s clash with Prograis.

Haney elaborated on the decision, stating, “My body has matured. I’ve been at 135 for 30 fights now. It’s unheard of. I did everything at 135. Undisputed. Defended it twice. Now, it’s time to move up to 140 and come in as a Challenger and become a champion at 140 once again.”

Confident and resolute, Haney faces the challenge with optimism. Who do you think will emerge as the winner? Do share your pick in the comments below.
