Devin Haney Sees Luke Campbell vs. Javir Fortuna as 50-50 Fight

A purse bid for the vacant WBC lightweight title was called off in January when the handlers for Luke Campbell and Javier Fortuna agreed to terms to make the fight. Campbell is represented by Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing while Fortuna is handled by Sampson Lewkowicz.

When the fight will actually take place is a whole other question with the covid-19 coronavirus bringing all sports to a halt through at least the end of April and potentially longer.

The title became vacant when Devin Haney underwent right shoulder surgery after his November unanimous decision victory over Alfredo Santiago.

When the fight comes to fruition, Haney believes that both fighters have a great chance at emerging victorious.

“It is a good fight. I think that fight is like a 50-50 fight. I think either one of them can beat each other. I don’t think one is better than the other,” Haney explained.

As for his own plans, Haney previously told BoxingScene.com that he is targeting a date in July for his return. Even with the pandemic potentially wiping out 3-4 months of the sports' calendar, the 21-year-old believes that he will still have the best year of his young career.

“I think 2020 is going to be a huge year. I have been demanding these fights. Right now we are in negotiations for a huge fight so 2020 is going to be huge,” Haney told BoxingScene.com.

Haney went 4-0 in 2019 with 2 of his victories coming via knockout.
