In the video shared by the user on YouTube, Mayweather Sr. boldly suggested the whole ordeal in Floyd Mayweather gym was a one-sided fight. In addition, the retired boxer revealed who he thinks won. “It ain’t even worth asking because it was a one-way deal. Only one man controlled it, and that was Devin Haney,” said Mayweather Sr.

During his appearance in the Rize Podcast back on November 26, Davis claimed he nearly knocked out Haney. ‘Tank’ said, “I sparred him twice. The first time, his father took him out the ring. I almost knocked him out in Floyd’s gym. Did they tell you that?” With their sparring match in Mayweather gym aside, Bill Haney recently fired shots at Bob Arum!

So, Bill Haney decided to express his thoughts about Aurm’s claim on his Instagram story. The father of the recently crowned 140lbs champion claimed Arum is weaving a narrative to hinder a fight between Devin and ‘Tank.’

No more narratives can be created. The time’s up… It’s now,” said Bill.
