Devin Haney strongly disagrees with Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe when it comes to the timing of a potential fight between himself and Gervonta "Tank" Davis.

He firmly believes that a showdown between him and Tank is currently the most significant event in the world of boxing and doesn't require years of marination to maximize its financial potential. He criticizes the Mayweather Promotions approach, which often delays big fights involving their star fighters, preventing fans from witnessing the matchups they desire.

Haney points out that this strategy worked for Floyd Mayweather against Manny Pacquiao but wasn't satisfying for fans who paid a hefty price for a less-than-exciting bout. The frustration extends to Tank Davis, who has yet to face top-tier opponents despite his ten-year professional career.

Haney raises questions about Showtime Boxing's future if Davis continues to avoid fights against highly sought-after opponents. Some fans speculate that PBC and Mayweather Promotions are protecting their investment in Tank by ensuring he faces beatable opponents, thus maximizing their returns.

Haney expresses his willingness to cooperate with any network or promoter to make the biggest fights happen, even if it means working with Mayweather Promotions and PBC. He also contemplates whether Mayweather Promotions would allow Tank Davis to face him if he doesn't perform well or loses to Regis Prograis.

Haney believes that if Tank can be matched against fighters like Ryan Garcia and Rolando 'Rolly' Romero, a matchup with him should also be on the table. However, Haney acknowledges the uncertainty of the situation, considering his own performance and the competitive landscape of the 140-lb division.

He remains resolute in his desire to make the fight happen, emphasizing that a bout between him and Tank Davis would be a pivotal moment in the sport of boxing.
