    What has been said?

    Regis Prograis:

    "I don’t think Devin is strong," Prograis told The DAZN Boxing Show. 

    "This will just come down to a mental battle, that’s all. I don’t think physically he is strong.

    "But at the same time, I’m going to respect his power because I haven’t tasted it yet, I don’t know how hard he hits.

    "I’m training like he has a lot of power."

    Devin Haney:

    “I feel like it’s the right time for me to move up,” Haney said.

    “Every fight, you know, comes with its challenges. But my body was just – it was hard to make 135.

    "I wanna see how I feel at 140. Obviously, I still have the belts at 135. You know, there’s still big fights at 135.

    “But right now, it’s a chance for me to become a two-division champ at 140. No matter who it was, you know I was willing to fight whoever at 140.

    "Regis stepped up to the plate and I feel like Regis is also the best guy at 140. So, I’m happy I’m going into my first fight at 140 against the guy I feel like is the best at 140.”
