Set the record straight: this world is about who we love!


By Yungwe: The world is who we love! When two similar situations occur, many people shamelessly side with those they love. These same individuals aim to eradicate and decimate the character of those they dislike. Boxing more than any other sport is about WHO WE LOVE! The dirty tricks behind the scenes are covered up like a blanket because of the so-called “fans” of the sport of boxing. The coffin has been closed on this Haney and Loma saga. We all know how the situation has unfolded so far. However, again, the world depends on who we like and who we dislike. So, for the hundredth time, let’s use facts and pure logic, instead of biased opinions to draw the right conclusions.

After the franchise title was created for Canelo Alvarez to dodge Jermall Charlo, the dirty politics of boxing were once again exposed. In the words of Floyd Mayweather, “That which is dark and dark will soon come into full view”, and it was obvious. Boxing and the old media had a problem on their hands.

A young and vivacious 20-year-old, Devin Haney, has become one of Lomachenko’s mandatory boxing darlings. Remember that the world depends on who we love. While talented, Loma received passes and apologies for his entire career. His father was on tape telling Max Kellerman that they would use Orlando Salido as a punching bag. However, the pickaxe turned into a grenade. Salido, the part-time Uber driver who lost 14, used Lomachenko as a punching bag. In an upset win for Salido, an apology for Lomachenko poured in. It was only Loma’s second fight, Salido was dirty, they trapped him. All apologies made for someone the media likes. He was beaten fair and square by the best man that night.

Dodging is a sin. With Haney pushing for a fight against Lomachenko, the WBC, in another unprecedented move, awarded Lomachenko the not-so-coveted Canelo Alvarez franchise duck title. This was confirmed by WBC President Mauricio Sulaimán. It is recorded to explain how Bob Arum and Lomachenko claimed this duck title. As a result, he wouldn’t have to face the obligatory Devin Haney. However, Lomachenko is expected to relinquish the WBC belt as a result.

Lomachenko quickly accepted, thus making Haney the permanent champion. The facts are that Lomachenko wanted to go unchallenged, well until Haney pressed on. Instead, he opted to fight a green Teofimo Lopez in another cherry pick gone bad. He lost a lopsided affair with Lopez, the Matrix crash. Once again, the apologies rang out for everyone to hear. Loma was injured, the size difference, his dog died. We have heard it all. Remember that dodging is a sin. Lomachenko has been dodging Devin Haney since Haney was a prospect at age 20. His avoidance and blind ignorance led to his own demise. It’s amazing how the universe comes full circle.

Fast forward nearly 4 years, Devin Haney is undisputed atop the 135-pound division. We live in a time where fans complain that fights are unorganized and fighters don’t face the best challengers. This is something Lomachenko is guilty of. His avoidance of Haney is unambiguous. They call Haney a weight bully but don’t note at the 30-day weigh-in for the Campbell fight that Lomachenko weighed in at 144.5 pounds. He was almost a welterweight after two months of training. Or how he pulled Guillermo Rigondeaux up two divisions for a fight. A fighter in Haney tries to fight anyone and everyone but yet he is ridiculed by some. Again, the dirty tactics of old media and race-based fans rear their ugly heads.

It boils down to this. Haney quickly overtakes the division. However, I believe for his legacy, he will suck it up and stick around for another fight at 135. I won’t let anyone pass the narrative that Haney avoids Lomachenko. THIS IS A BOLD LIE! In reality, Lomachenko dodged Haney at the speed of light. Even deciding to face the remains of Teofimo Lopez in Nakatani and Commey. Haney was clamoring to fight Loma before putting pen to paper to fight these meaningless fights. Now he’s battling his future sparring partner for his next fight. Now that Haney has all the belts, he’s in the driver’s seat, and it’s refreshing to see Lomachenko getting a taste of his own medicine. He now has to beg and crawl at Haney’s feet for a chance to reach the top of the mountain.

However, he will never get there. Haney has all the physical advantages and he’s the best boxer. It’s his time now. Lomachenko lost his early amateur years beating teenagers. Boxing sped up by Loma and he looks like he’s in quicksand trying to get away. Let’s see if Haney throws him an undeserved rope. When and if they fight, I expect Haney to win in a comfortable decision.
– Haney undisputed!
