Pound-for-pound great, Vasyl Lomachenko, lost his lightweight straps against Teofimo Lopez last year. But, he can win the WBC title by vanquishing Devin Haney in an upcoming clash. Although the fight is nowhere close to being sealed, the lightweight elites have desired to face each other.

That said, both Haney and Lomachenko are running out of relevant contenders. So, they can lock horns and produce a nail-biting clash, to resurrect their position in the ongoing ride.

The undefeated Devin Haney has initiated the call, as he turned to Twitter and enquired about ‘The Matrix’. In response, Vasyl Lomachenko denounced ‘The Dream’ as a coward. While the Twitter banter had already intensified the tale, Lomachenko and Haney dragged it deeper.
