Devin Haney steps up in weight and looks to extend his dominance to the super-lightweight division as he challenges for Regis Prograis' world title in California this weekend.
The American completed the set at 135lbs, beating George Kambosos twice in Australia to become undisputed lightweight champion, and he defended that crown with a somewhat fortunate points victory over Vasiliy Lomachenko in May.
Haney last week declared that he will be vacating his lightweight belts, turning his full focus to the 140lbs division and suggesting he could even move up further in the future in his bid to become a three-weight world champion.
The 25-year-old, 30-0 as a professional, faces a major test in his first fight at super-lightweight though, as he bids to take Prograis' WBC belt. Josh Taylor is the only man to have beaten Prograis, who became world champion for a second time when he stopped Jose Zepeda last year.
Prograis was though far from convincing when beating Danielito Zorrilla on points in his homecoming bout in New Orleans six months ago, and now it is Haney who has home advantage in San Francisco on Saturday night.
Haney is the firm favourite, despite the step up to 140lbs for the first time, and it is difficult to argue with that.
He may not be the most thrilling fighter to watch but Haney is clinically effective and, while fans are desperate to see bouts against Shakur Stevenson and Gervonta Davis, the 25-year-old has showed no fear in taking on Lomachenko and Kambosos Jr, who he travelled to Australia to beat twice.
Should it be another successful night for Haney, the formula will surely be a familiar one. His last seven wins have come on points and the American can be expected to try and keep himself out of trouble throughout, controlling the distance and picking off rounds with his jab.
Prograis has the power to trouble Haney, with 24 of his 29 professional wins coming by stoppage, and he will have to force the issue and be the aggressor on Saturday night. His performance last time out against Zorrilla will have done nothing to worry Haney - a major step-up is required from the champion.
Haney has a seemingly unshakeable confidence, is almost ten years younger than Prograis, and can be expected to look even stronger in the ring now he is not having to make 135lbs. In a clash of styles, the control of Haney is likely to come out on top.
