Devin Haney tweeted that he was fined $400,000, presumably by the Nevada Athletic Commission, for shoving Vasiliy Lomachenko at Friday's weigh-in. Haney went on to win the fight by a very narrow decision. On Wednesday tweeted:"This guy is a f*cking sore loser.. Get this privilege sore loser out of boxing he makes excuses as he goes! Take your lost like a man & stop crying.. it was set up for you to win for the 3rd time in your career & you failed! Tell the commission give me my 400k back for that push!"

Two of boxing’s best pound-for-pound fighters will battle for supremacy in the 135-pound division this Saturday when Devin “The Dream” Haney defends his undisputed crown against former three-division champion Vasiliy Lomachenko from Ukraine at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. This Friday both passed the official weigh-in. Haney posted 134.9 pounds, while Lomachenko was credited with exactly 135 pounds. There was controversy, however, as Haney gave Lomachenko a nasty shove during the stare down.
