RISING star and interim WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney has outlined a three fight plan to achieve divisional supremacy.

His promoter under the DAZN and Matchroom global outfit, Eddie Hearn is keen to make the fights calling Haney “the best young fighter in the world.

Beginning in 2020, Haney hopes to conquer the lightweight division in three blockbuster fights.

He will first target a crossroads clash with Ryan Garcia. ‘The Flash’ is known for his lightning fast punches and stylish Instagram friendly combinations.

Haney vs Garcia would be a ticket seller that would determine which of these boyish prodigy’s advances to the top of the tree.

Although Garcia has recently re-signed with Golden Boy Promotions, an agreement appears to be in place for Garcia to fight on Hearn’s DAZN streaming service.

After Garcia, Haney wants to move on to Luke Campbell, the Yorkshireman is one of the best of British and has mixed it with lightweight champions like Jorge Linares and modern great Vasyl Lomachenko who he took the distance.

After the Campbell acid test, Haney feels he would then be ready for lightweight supremo, Vasyl Lomachenko.

The Ukrainian is a world champion at 3 weights and currently holds the WBC, WBO and WBA lightweight belts.
