GIFTED American lightweight prospect Devin Haney produced a scintillating Knockout of the Year contender to cap off an impressive performance against tough Mexican Antonio Moran at the MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland.

Haney dominated proceedings from the outset and was simply too quick, too skilled and too powerful for Moran, who had pushed former two-weight world champion Jose Pedraza hard during a close points defeat in June last year.

Haney, who demonstrated a good defensive acumen as well as looking bright when on the attack, floored Moran with a right hand to the midsection in the fifth round. By the seventh, Moran’s features were swollen, and it was during this session that the definitive ending arrived.
