A 21-year-old American boxer likened to Floyd Mayweather said he’d “never let a white boy” beat him.

WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney made the comments during a 78SportsTV live stream on YouTube which involved a fan-led Q&A.


Vasyl Lomachenko, one of the greatest amateur boxers of all time and a technically-adept pro, is regarded as the best lightweight fighter in the world today. {snip}

Commenting on a potential Lomachenko fight, Haney said: “I’ll tell you this, I’ll never lose to a white boy in my life. I don’t care what nobody got to say. Ain’t no white boy who can beat me any day of the week.

“Fight a white boy 10 times, I’m gonna beat him 10 times,” Haney said.
