Devin Haney changed the public opinion around him with his convincing victory over Regis Prograis. Interestingly, team Haney has locked their sights on a potential fight with Gervonta Davis. Ever since Haney’s call out in the post-fight interview, the two have been going back and forth on social media. However, it seems that the fight may not see the light of day now.

Recently, Bill Haney, in a video, claimed that Davis had turned down an offer for a whopping $20 million. This led to Davis criticizing Haney’s camp, stating, “These n***as is p***y. If they wanna make the fight happen, tell them they know who to call. They’re broke.” Even Leonard Ellerbe took to Twitter to fire shots at Haney. But a recent statement from Eddie Hearn hints that the fight might not happen.

In an interview with Eddie Hearn discussed the authenticity of Bill Haney’s claims of Davis turning down the huge opportunity. He revealed, “I mean we wanna speak to Gervonta Davis. I reached out to him because we got huge offers for him, Bill knows those numbers and we got offers around the world to stage that fight. Unfortunately, Gervonta didn’t want to discuss them, but we’ll move on and see what’s next. Hopefully, that fight can get made in the future.”

According to Hearn, the lightweight champion is not interested in a fight against Haney for now. However, he wants to keep the doors open for a future fight as well. It seems that the fight may not take place for now, much to the disappointment of fans. Interestingly, this allowed Davis’ old rival a chance to land shots at him.

Ryan Garcia receives shots from both Davis and Haney

Earlier this year, Davis came out victorious against Ryan Garcia in one of the biggest fights this year. Even though the two didn’t do a rematch, the rivalry remains. Garcia recently took to Twitter stating, “Tank will not fight you without the clauses!” Davis immediately hit back, writing, “Do you want me to beat ya a** again..Becuz it was easier than taking candy from baby g.”

However, Garcia deleted the tweet later, which caused Haney to criticize him once again. It seems that both Davis and Haney have already started looking at other potential fights. For now, fans will have to see how the situation develops further.
