Devin Haney

On his performance: “I felt good on my performance. I wasn’t nearly done beating him, I was just warming up. I’m happy with the win.”

On when you figured him out: “Instantly, I don’t usually study cause I learn fast. I can make quick adjustments anytime and that’s what I did tonight.”

On fighting Lomachenko: “It’s No-machenko because he doesn’t want to fight me. Lomachenko let’s get this fight going! Abdullaev was number two and I destroyed him. If I’m so easy, No-machenko should fight me and get me out of the way.”

On if he can’t get Lomachenko fight: “I’ve been talking to my promoter about Nov. 9. I think it’s good for the sport of boxing, brings new fans, and gets me back in the ring.”

Amanda Serrano

On her performance: “It was a great performance. Heather is as tough as they come and she’s a champion for a reason. She came to fight, but I was the better girl tonight. She’s just not on my level yet.”

On a possible early KO: “I felt it. Heather is a warrior, she came and stood for 10 rounds. My corner told me to box, catch her coming in, be smart and technical.”

On wanting Katie Taylor next: “Katie Taylor wants 140, so we will see what she wants to do. No matter what weight, I’ll win.”

Michael Hunter

On his performance: “I wanted to stop the boy, but he’s a tough opponent, I didn’t get him. I am pleased with my performance, but I saw things I need to sharpen up on. I’m very pleased.”

On bigger guys absorbing his shots: “He was a strong dude with a lot of weight. He absorbed it very well. Their guard is tight, I just have to go back to the drawing board and dissect these guys again.”

On who he wants next: “I want Povetkin. If you see me Povetkin, I’m coming for you.”
