Devin Haney suffers first scare of career after being rocked against Jorge Linares as Ryan Garcia says ‘I’d sleep you’

DEVIN HANEY retained his WBC lightweight title with a unanimous points win against Jorge Linares – but was rocked to his boots in the tenth round.

The judges ringside in Las Vegas scored it 116-112, 116-112 and 115-113 to Haney on an impressive night against former world champ Linares.

But it was far from plain sailing.

Sensing he was behind on the card, Linares really put it up to his 22-year-old opponent.

And a stunning left-right combo of power punches at the end of the tenth round had Haney stumbling back to his corner.

But the sixty seconds to re-gather his senses did the trick, and Haney closed out the fight to maintain his unbeaten run.

But some of his lightweight opponents were less-than impressed with what they saw.

Haney’s mandatory challenger for the WBC belt Ryan Garcia tweeted: “I would’ve slept you.”

Garcia is currently taking time out of the sport to focus on his health and wellbeing.

IBF, WBA, WBO, and The Ring magazine champ Teofimo Lopez posted the plate with knife and fork emoji, presumably believing that he would ‘eat Haney for dinner’ if they ever fought.

Haney became a world champion when his WBC interim lightweight title was elevated and is a protege of the great Floyd Mayweather.

He also seems to fancy a shot at Lomachenko, with the two exchanging words on social media last month.

Loma, who is yet to fight since a shattering defeat to Teofimo Lopez, has labelled Devin Haney a ‘coward’.
