Devin Haney is not ready for Gervonta Davis claims Tank's trainer

Calvin Ford, the head trainer for superstar Gervonta 'Tank' Davis had assessed the recent lightweight bout between Devin Haney and Vasiliy Lomachenko as a draw.

Earlier this month, Haney retained his undisputed lightweight gold with a close twelve round unanimous decision over Lomachenko at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Following the event, there was a lot of disagreement on who should have won.

"On my scorecard, I had it as a draw," Ford told MillCity Boxing. "I thought Devin was effective in the first half of the fight. In the last round, I didn’t see nothing from nobody, but the judges felt that Devin did more than Loma. He’s a younger fighter with more opportunities. Loma is 35."

Haney is currently considering moving up to the junior welterweight limit of 140 pounds.

He is, however, willing to remain at 135 for important matches against Shakur Stevenson or Davis.

Ford indicates that Davis would have no problem with facing Haney for the undisputed championship - but he doesn't believe Haney is ready for such a content.

"I know one thing. I know one thing. He isn't ready for Tank. Devin’s team is saying, 'F--- 135-pounds,' and the only person that could make them change their minds is Tank at 135. They’re going up to 140-pounds if they’re willing to take that chance. If I was with their team, I’d say, 'I’m fighting Tank. Get that payday and keep it moving.' That 140lb is getting real deep," Ford said.

"Tank pushed them all out of 135. 'Get out of here.' I’m like this. We make 135 real good. Why do we have to go up to 140? We’re the cash cow. I’m going to make them come to me."
