Devin Haney TKO5

Champion97's picture

Prediction.

Linares and Haney are similar in that they can both box on the outside, are both fast, are solid combination punchers, but very different in that Haney hasn't shown vulnerabilities, but seems to lack power and offensive versatility, whereas Linares isn't durable, can be hurt, struggles to recover, but hits very hard, goes through the gears. Both fighters have good reflexes, but I think Haney's reactions are faster at this stage, both have good footwork, but Haney should have the faster feet and better movement. Haney and Linares both have very fast hands, Haney can't have fought many opponents with the hand speed Linares had in his prime, he isn't as fast at 35. Linares cuts easily, Haney's speed and ability to punch over the guard makes his shots a risk for facial injuries, Linares isn't unlikely to be cut by punches in this fight, but Haney doesn't hit hard, Linares's biggest weakness is his chin, so Haney isn't the worst opponent for Linares, and Linares's experience could be a factor if he hasn't got old overnight.

I think Haney will start faster, Linares will struggle with the feints, will be behind with the feet, and he'll struggle to time Haney. I think Haney will punch through the guard, his shots will do some damage, but Linares will hold up, and in the mid rounds, he will let his hands more, as he adapts to the speed and quick reactions of Haney, Haney will defend well, but Linares will test his chin. I think Linares will tire in the late rounds, he will take risks and open up, but he will take all the damage in exchanges, Haney won't be able to put him down with one hard shot like others fighters have, but it's when he lands 3 or 4 clean shots in quick succession, that Linares will go down, and once Haney has Linares hurt, I think he'll stop him with accumulation.

I think Haney stops Linares late, I wouldn't be at all surprised if he stopped him mid, but I don't think he'll stop early. The pressure is on Haney to make a statement in this fight, not in terms of keeping his career going, he's already technically a champion, but in terms of setting up big fights, he won't raise his stock with a UD against Linares at this stage.

What did you think of this fight?

Champion97's picture

Were you asking me specifically? If so, I'll write a break down later, but basically, I wasn't impressed at all by Haney, I was impressed by Linares, I don't think Haney had the right game plan, his inexperience was a problem. What did you think?

I thought Haney was making good use of his jab in the first few rounds, but as the fight went on he gassed quicker than Linares and was exposed in the later rounds. I think he has a lot less power than other top lightweights like Teo and was expecting a bit more from him.

SalTnutZ1's picture

Teo or Tank by brutal KO if he fights either. Ry may be too much at this point, because I could see Haney boxing his head off for 7-8 rounds, and Garcia finally landing that left hook bomb, and the night would be over.

Debyaka's picture

Really? Nobody else gave Haney the 12th?? I know the running hug wasn't nice but still.

Champion97's picture

If Linares had been in his prime, I think he'd have won, his reactions would have been faster, he'd have had more speed in hand and foot, and in the last 2 rounds, he'd have had more in the tank to build on hurting Haney, but it was a great performance from him at 35. Haney was offensively good, his speed and reflexes were important, and his variety was good, he did good work to the body, hurt Linares to the body in round 8, but his defence was poor throughout, he got caught on the counter even in the early rounds, Linares's output was low, he struggled with Haney's reactions and combinations, but Haney was taking more out of himself than Linares, put too much into his shots, struggled to get head shots through the guard, he was tired from his own pace in the late rounds, Linares was countering more easily, Haney was hurt bad at the end of round 10, it would have been interesting if it had been earlier in the round, he didn't fully recover in the minute, but he did well to get through round 11 without going down, that took a lot of fitness and heart, and he was too far ahead for Linares to win with a strong finish.

Haney couldn't stop Gamboa in his previous fight, and I think this fight was further proof Haney has very little power, he'll harder later in his 20s, but if he moves up in weight later in his career, he'll have even less power, I think he fought like a puncher, should have tried to break Linares down, used his jab more, I think he could have stopped him with more clean shots to head and body, if he'd jabbed through the guard, set up the right hand, and caused Linares to walk into shots rather than just keeping Linares mostly on the defensive with fast combinations. I think the pressure of needing to make a statement affected Haney's performance, he didn't have the right game plan, but this was a good learning fight for him.
