Women’s boxing star Claressa Shields like most boxing fans at the weekend was very impressed with young world champion Devin Haney.
A fighter who passed the step up test in his career he needed at that point.
Shields said of the fight:
Linares certainly was no joke.
Still a very dangerous operator at world level and still plenty of power.
Haney showed good chin and ability to bounce back near the end.
Plenty to work on like all these fighters of course.
Big fights await Haney if he can be a bit more exciting, some boos in the audience was not good to see for a hometown fighter but he will improve as time goes on.
