During the ceremonial weigh-ins on Friday, Devin Haney physically shoved Vasiliy Lomachenko, which prompted the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) to file an official complaint against Haney. During the future meeting of the NSAC, the complaint will be delivered to the attorney’s office in order to be considered for a disciplinary hearing.

Mike Coppinger of ESPN recently broke the story and revealed that the commission ordered Lomachenko to take a second physical exam and get medically re-cleared for his fight versus Haney “out of an abundance of caution.” Coppinger also stated that the commission urged Lomachenko to take the test.
The source further added that although ‘The Dream’ will definitely walk away with a $4 million purse, he will most certainly be penalized for the disrespectful behavior he displayed during the award ceremony.

According to sources that spoke with ESPN, the NSAC is planning to submit a complaint with its attorney’s office for a disciplinary hearing at its upcoming meeting.
According to our sources, Devin Haney, who is set to get a fixed sum of $4 million, will very certainly be punished for the shove of Loma.

On May 20 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the undisputed lightweight champion is scheduled to defend his uncontested title against the unpredictable Lomachenko. Both Devin Haney and Vasiliy Lomachenko are widely regarded as being among the sport’s elite boxers, and their bout in Nevada this weekend is sure to generate plenty of excitement.
During the weigh-ins, Haney appeared to be physically stronger than his Ukrainian opponent, and he will most likely exploit this to his advantage. The American presently holds a perfect record of 29 wins and 0 losses in his professional career. In the meantime, Lomachenko has a record of 17-2 and a mind-boggling 396-1 as an amateur.
Devin Haney explains how Floyd Mayweather messed up the sport of boxing by going undefeated
Recently, before his highly anticipated defense of his title against Vasiliy Lomachenko, Devin Haney offered his thoughts on the sport of boxing as it stands right now. The current crop of boxers avoid taking hazardous matchups in order to preserve their unbeaten records, according to “The Dream,” who saw the effect that Floyd Mayweather’s perfect record has had on today’s pugilists and stated that this trend is due to the influence of Mayweather’s record.
Due to the fact that he is undefeated with a record of 50-0 and has won 15 major world championships, Mayweather is largely regarded as the best boxer in the history of the sport by a large number of fans. His detractors, on the other hand, have pointed out that “Money” was extremely selective in the opponents he chose to face and waited to face them until they were well past their prime so that he could have an easier path to success.
In a recent episode of The Pivot podcast, host Devin Haney made the assertion that the younger generation of boxers appear to have adopted Floyd Mayweather’s practices as their own. Haney, in explaining his stance and praising the competitors of the UFC, stated:
“In the UFC, those guys fight each other, lose, fight again while still being equally as huge, and may even be bigger after a loss… We have the ability to completely alter its dynamic, but we will not. Mayweather kind of messed up the game with the unbeaten being everything, so men don’t want to fight each other because they want to keep their 0”. Floyd improved boxing, but Mayweather kind of ruined the sport.
