On Saturday night, lightweight contender Devin Haney (22-0 14 KOs) faces Zaur Abdullaev (11-0 7 KOs) for the Interim WBC World Lightweight title inside of the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden, New York. The fight will air live on DAZN in the US and on Sky Sports in the UK.

Haney, still just 20 years old, will likely call out unified lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko if he is victorious. Lomachenko recently defeated Luke Campbell over 12 rounds in England, and Haney has been mentioning the matchup as a preference of his. If the two ever meet, it would be one of the more intriguing matchups in the sport, a great youth vs. experience type of fight.

Abdullaev isn’t as well known as his younger opponent, but he has the chance to upset his apple cart on Saturday night.
