Haney VS. Diaz JR. Fight Prediction :
Despite all of the discussion about Haney’s chin, he may be too long and skillful for Diaz to discover.
Diaz has established himself to be a dual-threat fighter who can mix it up and box when necessary in several classes. Haney’s amazing ability, on the other hand, appears to be on another level.
Diaz is likely to try to vary his assault from the outside early on. But he’ll have to come forward at some point, and that’s when Haney will be at his most dangerous, trying to catch him coming in.
Diaz, despite his physical comfort at 135 pounds, isn’t a big puncher, and he’ll need to be if he wants to win.
