Bey: Haney has every advantage over Russell
Bey says Russell doesn’t really want the kind of action he’s been talking about on social media.
In this video interview with Fight Hype, Mickey Bey shares his perspective on a potential fight between Devin Haney and Gary Russell Jr. and why he thinks it’s be an easy noteworthy win for his friend. Check out a couple excerpts below...
Bey on how he sees the matchup between Haney and Russell:
“I’m not just saying this because, you know, Devin is my guy, but he can do everything better (than Russell). Some stuff I won’t give away in case Gary does man up and sign the contract, but it’s nothing he can beat. The only thing possibly he can match him at is what every fighter can have — geting in shape and having heart — but other than that Devin has every advantage. It’s so many that I don’t even wanna scare him out of the fight more that it is now. I can promise you he can’t do one thing better than Devin.”
On what he makes of Russell calling out Terence Crawford, Haney, and other via social media:
“I mean it was entertaining, but we know he didn’t really mean what he said...but now he got the offer (from Haney). DHP, Eddie Hearn, they working it out, man. Whatever (Russell) asked for, I’m sure it’s on the table and all that. So if he’s really about what he say then let’s do it, and Devin want it sooner than later.”
