The last fighter to hold the WBC lightweight title was not at all impressed with the fight to fill that vacancy.

Devin Haney didn’t even wait until the final bell to take a parting shot at Shakur Stevenson, who outpointed Edwin De Los Santos over twelve painfully dull rounds to win the vacant WBC 135-pound title. Newark’s Stevenson won by scores of 115-113, 116-112 and 116-112 to become a three-division titleholder Thursday on ESPN from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

“Should’ve offered this bum 10%,” Haney posted on X during the later rounds of Stevenson-De Los Santos. “I was being too generous.”

The percentage was in reference to another made by Las Vegas’ Haney (30-0, 15KOs), the former undisputed and current lineal, WBA, IBF and WBO champion. Stevenson (21-0, 10KOs) was previously named as the mandatory challenger to the WBC title held at the time by Haney, who reportedly presented his unbeaten rival with 25 percent of the total pot for their future fight.

Haney held the WBC belt since 2019 and made seven successful defenses of that belt. He has also twice defended his undisputed championship reign but was since relieved of the WBC title and named the sanctioning body’s ‘Champion in Recess.’ He still holds the WBA, IBF and WBO belts as he attempts a move up in weight to challenge for Regis Prograis’ WBC 140-pound title.

Even with a win, Haney has not ruled out a return to lightweight—and not necessarily versus Stevenson.

“Stop that scared narrative… nobody was ever scared of that bum,” insisted Haney. “He wanted clout!! That’s all they use my name for.”
