Devin Haney by TKO/KO/DQ +750 over Vasyl Lomachenko

11:00 PM EST. It's fight night in Las Vegas as the undisputed lightweight championship is on the line. If you like that "big fight feel," this one has it as Devin Haney will defend his title against former unified champion Vasiliy Lomachenko.

Lomachenko has long been considered one of the best pound-for-pound fighters on the planet, but father time is undefeated. Lomachenko is now 35, and he faces the challenge of fighting in a weight class higher than his ideal weight and the realization that time is running out. To his credit, Lomachenko has never shied away from tough challenges throughout his career, consistently seeking out formidable opponents. However, in recent fights, he has shown signs of slowing down and has struggled to find his rhythm. That will not suit him well here, as Haney is younger, faster, and hungrier to make his name known.

Lomachenko's habit of starting fights slowly and giving away early rounds could prove costly against an aggressive fighter like Haney, who excels at smothering opponents and maintaining control with his jab. Lomachenko must find a way to overcome Haney's reach and establish an inside game to have a chance of surviving, which is easier said than done.

Haney is favored in the -250 range, and if this fight goes the distance and we rip up this ticket, so be it. There is way too much value on Haney to put down the aged Lomachenko. This is a legacy-making fight for Haney, and he knows it. The dude is not going to leave anything to chance if he can help it. Call this a throwaway bet if you like, but we would not post this write-up or make this wager if it didn't have a great chance to cash this ticket.
