Five more fights for Devin Haney after George Kambosos Jr’s rematch win, including Vasiliy Lomachenko and Teofimo Lopez

DEVIN HANEY returns to America as the undisputed lightweight king after beating George Kambosos Jr.

The American returned to the scene four months after the belts were unified in Melbourne to give another master class to Kambosos.

Afterwards, Haney said: “We take on all comers, no matter who it is, we want to fight the best fighters in the world.

“I think I’m the best fighter in the world, whoever’s next, push it forward.”

With that said, SunSport is rolling down what could be next for Haney.

Vasily Lomachenko

Haney, 23, signed a three-fight deal with Top Rank for his shot at Kambosos, 29, and the unified belts.

And Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum already named Lomachenko, 34, as an option after beating Kambosos again in Australia.

The Ukrainian celebrates his boxing comeback against Jamaine Ortiz, 26, on October 29 and wants to fight for the titles afterwards.

And it would make sense for Haney to complete the final fight of his current contract with pound-for-pound star Lomachenko.

Teofimo Lopez

Another high-profile fight ready to be fought by Top Rank pits bitter rivals Lopez and Haney against each other.

They are former sparring partners turned arch-rivals who were set to fight at lightweight before 25-year-old Lopez lost to Kambosos in 2021.

The American has since risen to super-lightweight and is targeting titles in his new home of 140lbs.

And with Haney looking gaunt at the 135-pound mark, it could be the perfect time to step up while also settling scores with Lopez.

Gervonta Davis

Perhaps the biggest money fight in the lightweight division would be against pay-per-view headliner Davis, 27.

And the former protégé of Floyd Mayweather has long been a rival to Haney, leaving fans desperate after a clash by the undefeated pair.

Rumors recently suggested Davis is a free agent after fighting the final battle for his current contract with promoter Mayweather, 45.

So it could free him up to negotiate a deal with Haney despite ongoing talks about fighting Ryan Garcia, 24.

Ryan Garcia

Garcia and Haney’s history stretches back to the amateurs, where they both recorded wins over each other.

Since then, Garcia has become a mainstream attraction with a huge following on social media, while Haney wears the title belts.

The pair were set up for a fight on DAZN, although an agreement could not be reached.

Haney is still on good terms with DAZN, leaving the door open for a return to the face of poster boy Garcia.

Shakur Stevenson

25-year-old two-weight world champion Stevenson is expected to rise to lightweight after vacating his super featherweight belt.

Stevenson is currently Top Rank’s fastest rising prospect with a history of winning titles alongside Haney in the unpaid ranks.

They even used to fight together and respect each other as they climb the ranks.

But with Haney’s time at lightweight sure to come to an end, a window of opportunity to fight Stevenson could be short, meaning the time could be now.
