Devin Haney makes the 3rd defense of his WBC World Lightweight Title in Las Vegas on Saturday May 29th against the experienced vet and former 135lb champion, Jorge Linares.

Tyson Fury's former trainer Ben Davison will be working in Haney's corner on Saturday night but at the moment there is no long-term committment, that's according to this interview I watched earlier

Weirdly DAZN took down the press conference and weigh ins, unfortunately I didn't get to watch it first to see why they might have done that but anyway here's the shorter in length Matchroom Boxing edit

Booing less than halfway through the 1st round because Fuzile is taking a look at his opponent? Is the stadium full of casuals or something? Wow

This over Donaire?
Well I'll be asleep before either main event starts I'm sure, way too tired today and it's already 2am almost but I would have opted for the Haney fight live over Donaire yes but I won't say it's an easy pick, I watched the Showtime weigh in yesterday and I'm just as excited for that one, first thing in the morning if I can find it

Great round, big shots exchanged, crowd not booing anymore, we've had a knockdown as well a bit of patience and the action comes alive, good scrap so far

Arrggghhhhhhh I NEVER bet when I should. It's all over in the 7th, he said at the press conference that he could beat him easily and he was the betting underdog too but he convinced me with his pre fight talk that he was sure he would get the job done but I failed to act. Ah well, great fight and finish from the South African. When I wake up tomorrow I expect I'll hear that Devin Haney has retained his lightweight world title

Is this fight as close as the commentary suggests? I’ve struggled to give Mosley 3 rounds. Am I just wrong?

Jorge is one of my favourite fighters. I’m actually nervous for the guy. Really hope he doesn’t get a pasting tonight
