"Take your lost like a man & stop crying."
taunted Devin Haney, as he took a jab at Vasiliy Lomachenko and his team, just days after securing a contentious victory over the esteemed veteran in Las Vegas. This bout, which numerous fans firmly believed Lomachenko deserved to win, has stirred considerable controversy.
In case you missed it, Devin Haney emerged victorious with a unanimous decision, as the judges' scorecards reflected 115-113 (7 rounds to 5) and 116-112 (8 rounds to 4).
Although the fight was fiercely contested and incredibly close, Lomachenko's team strongly believes that he unequivocally deserved the win. In fact, they penned a scathing letter expressing their discontent with the judging, highlighting what was undeniably a remarkable night of boxing.
"Loma was denied this victory in the ring on Saturday," Vasiliy's manager Egis Klimas wrote. "He deserves the opportunity to be ranked #1 and to get another chance at realizing his goals as soon as possible."
Haney, the undisputed lightweight champ, caught wind of what Klimas said ... and he responded, using harsh words, and a photo of Loma crying after the fight.
"This guy is a f***ing sore loser," the 24-year-old said on Twitter. "Get this privilege sore loser out of boxing he makes excuses as he goes!"
"Take your lost like a man & stop crying.. it was set up for you to win for the 3rd time in your career & you failed!"
Haney (30-0, 15 KOs) also seemingly revealed that he was fined for pushing Lomachenko at weigh-ins ... and it was a 6-figures!!!
"Tell the commission to give me my 400k back for that push!" Haney demanded.
This guy is a fucking sore loser.. Get this privilege sore loser out of boxing he makes excuses as he goes! Take your lost like a man & stop crying.. it was set up for you to win for the 3rd time in your career & you failed! Tell the commission give me my 400k back for that push! https://t.co/RrZQdrakGG— Devin Haney (@Realdevinhaney) May 24, 2023
A rematch between these two boxers would definitively resolve any remaining uncertainties and doubts lingering among fans. However, considering the statements made by Devin's father and trainer, Bill, it appears highly unlikely that they will ever step into the ring against each other again.
