Devin Haney stops Antonio Moran in DAZN debut – WORLD TITLE NEXT?
Devin Haney is inching closer and closer to his world title shot and his seventh round knockout of Antonio Moran at the MGM National Harbor Casino in Oxon Hill, MD, in his first fight with DAZN and Matchroom Boxing USA, might have been his best yet. Haney was far superior than Moran in every aspect of the fight and with the win, Haney puts more pressure on the sanctioning bodies for him to fight for a world title soon.

The first bout of the night saw a mild upset as lightweight Luis Gerardo Perez won a six-round unanimous decision over local Mack “Papi” Allison IV of Baltimore, MD.
