Haney (31-0, 15 KOs) is now a two-division world champion and he turned in a punch-perfect display. The 25-year-old technician decked Prograis with a rapier right hand and did whatever he wanted from beginning to end. Prograis had no answers against a younger, quicker, and more skilled opponent.

“I did everything that I said I was gonna do,” said a jubilant Prograis during his post-fight interview with DAZN. “I went in there and I handicapped him. We knew he was gonna come in with the big left hand. My dad came up with a tremendous game plan, along with my team.”

The jab was effective from the opening round, but Haney layered his offence throughout and kept the champion guessing. The left hook to the body worked wonders as did a sharp right lead. Whenever Prograis tried to up the pace, Haney countered accurately and drifted off to the sides. It was no contest from beginning to end.

Fight fans have lauded the performances of Terence Crawford and Naoya Inoue, who scored stoppage wins over Errol Spence Jr. and Stephen Fulton respectively. You can add this one to the list. This was as clinical and as dominant a boxing display as one could ever hope to see.

Having struggled to make 135 pounds for a couple of years, Haney, the former undisputed lightweight champion looked like a different fighter at super lightweight.

“[The move up in weight] made a tremendous difference,” confirmed Haney. “You see the difference from the [Vasiliy] Lomachenko fight. I felt so much stronger. In this camp I was able to recover and relax more, take some off days, and I felt great at 140. Me and my dad have been talking about moving to 147 to see how I fit in there, but right now, I’m the champion at 140 and we’ll see what’s next.”

The 34-year-old Prograis drops to 29-2 (24 KOs).
