What have they said?
“I’m very excited to be making my third world title defense against a great fighter like Jorge Linares, who will be the best fighter I will have ever faced in my career,” Haney said.
“He’s a three-division world champion who has fought at the championship level for the past thirteen years.
“I grew up watching Linares, and the fact that this fight is happening in Las Vegas is incredible.”
Linares said: “This is my moment to show the world that I still have a lot more to give at 135 pounds.
“Devin Haney is a talented and quick-handed young man, but when I was his age, I had already become a world champion by snatching the title away from a real world champion like Oscar Larios.”
