Still only 20 years old, Devin Haney is many people's choice as the best young prospect in Boxing. He seems to have it all. Speed, accuracy, great movement; both upper body and footwork. And a dynamic and intelligent style.  The one area that still possibly leaves some question marks is the power, i.e does he have the power to match his undoubted skills.  some observers have ben looking at the explosive power of Haney's main rival in the lightweight ranks, Teofimo Lopez, and questioning whether Haney can match the sort of power Lopez demonstrated in blasting out Mason Menard in one round, where Haney had taken nine against the same opponent. Tonight Haney is up against the strong, unbeaten South African Xoli Ndongeni and he has promised, as upcoming fighters tend to do, to "make a statement". This should mean either a wide and dominant points win, or a knockout.  Personally I think that Haney will try to stop Ndongeni, who is experienced, but not hard to hit, and the 13/10 for Haney by stoppage represents reasonable value.

A wide UD in the end for Haney. He dropped Ndongeni in the 2nd and had him hurt a couple of times, but couldn't stop the durable South African. A comfortable enough win for Haney, but won't do anything to silence the doubters about the perceived lack of power.
