  • Comments Thread For: Regis Prograis: Devin Haney's Perfect Record Was Everything to Him

    First L's are game changers already anyway. That first L reaction defines more boxers trajectory post-that L more than anything else. Its not a perfect record thing, its a first L thing. Kinda like how super competitive guys hate losing more than they love winning.

      It's always how they get back up after the pressure of taking that first L is off their shoulders. However, the nature of the L is an even bigger part of it. Haney was competitive whenever he didn't get hurt, but whenever he got rocked or dropped, it was tough to watch. He came back and fought with heart, but his lack of power is his biggest detriment and probably has a bigger bullseye on his back from the big dogs at 140 now after seeing what Garcia was able to do to him. We'll see going forward.

            But tell us does Floyd Mayweathers 0 have an asterisk too since the whole world seen him lose to Castillo?

            What about Tanks dehydration win over Ryan asterisk too???

              How about Floyd missing weight against Marquez ?

                  While I respect Prograis’ opinion; I am going to have to humbly disagree with it. Devin took on all comers and took more risks than any other fighter in boxing.

                  He fought Kambosos 2x on his home soil; Loma, Prograis and now Ryan Garcia in order to get what he wanted. That hardly sounds like a fighter who is trying to protect their undefeated record.

                  He just didn’t sit back to pick and choose in order to Pad his record and to protect his 0.

                    Damn! Regis is salty as Hell. He got his ass whooped by Devin and now he is hoping and wishing for him to fail.

                    What the Hell does he mean Haney is only a paper champion? He was all but willing, able and prepared to defend his title but Ryan decided to not to even bother to challenge him for it by deliberately not making the weight.
