Devin Haney Targets Welterweight Crown

Devin Haney emerged victorious against former WBC super lightweight champion Regis Prograis. The 25-year-old displayed confidence and skill, securing a lopsided unanimous decision victory in front of Prograis's supporters.

Despite his impressive 31-fight undefeated record and a new world title, Haney is not content to stay at 140 pounds. The Haney camp has expressed a preference for their next bout to be in the welterweight division, though they haven't completely ruled out a few more super lightweight fights.

The potential move to welterweight offers a five-pound reprieve for Haney's body, and the Haney team is eyeing notable names in the 147-pound division. Following the win over Prograis, Bill Haney mentioned Keith Thurman as a potential opponent. Thurman, a supremely talented but somewhat inactive former unified champion, was not in attendance at the Chase Center, but Bill Haney is confident that he tuned in to watch Devin's performance.

With his sights set on welterweight, Devin Haney is ready for the next challenge, and the prospect of facing Keith Thurman adds an intriguing layer to the upcoming possibilities in his promising career.
