Former British boxer Johnny Nelson joined those who believed the result was theft.
Vasily Lomachenko did not beat Devin Haney. This is what former British cruiserweight champion Johnny Nelson said.
He advises all those who do not think again to carefully watch the fight for the title of absolute champion.
At the same time, the former boxer did not begin to choose words in relation to the judges, who preferred the American.
“I think the decision of the judges is crap. I said before the fight that Haney will win. He didn’t win this fight. In my opinion, he didn’t win. We don’t know if it’s incompetence or cheating.”
I don’t understand how people can jump on this wave and say Haney won. No, he didn’t win, look at the match! Just watch each round and judge honestly. I thought Haney would win. So it is easy for me to say that he is the winner. No, he didn’t win,” Nelson said in an interview with the Lights Out YouTube channel.
It will be remembered that earlier the WBC left Lomachenko in the first place in the ranking, despite Haney’s defeat.
