It was not too far back that Lomachenko was considered the most talented fighter in a deep lightweight circuit. Utilizing incredible footwork and ring generalship, Loma operates with surgeon-like precision. However, after losing his titles to Teofimo Lopez back in October 2020 via UD (and taking time away from boxing to serve his native country of Ukraine), Loma is looking to reclaim his old spot as the division’s top fighter.
The lightweight division is as highly regarded as any right now; Well, Haney may be the very best of that lightweight bunch. With a height of 5’8, Haney has a reach of 71 inches (which is an inch taller and half a foot longer than Loma). Haney’s size and length also come with incredible skill and speed—it should be no surprise that Haney is the current undisputed lightweight champion.
At DraftKings Sportsbook, Haney is the favorite (-260) to win on Saturday night, leaving Loma as a 2/1 underdog. The round total has been set at 10.5, with the over-heavily juiced to a price of -750 (under 10.5 rounds: +425). In the Winning Method market, “Haney by Decision or Technical Decision -170” has the shortest odds, while “Lomachenko by KO/TKO/DQ +800” is priced longest outside of the outright “Draw +1400.”
