Bill Haney claims Floyd Mayweather retired after Devin Haney’s loss

Floyd Mayweather and Bill Haney are currently at odds after allegations surfaced regarding Mayweather’s involvement in canceling a potential bout between Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia.

Bill Haney claimed that Mayweather’s decision stemmed from a sparring session where Devin allegedly knocked Mayweather out. According to Haney, this event led to Mayweather’s retirement from professional boxing. Haney has challenged Mayweather to release footage of the sparring session to verify the claims surrounding his retirement.

While talking to the media, Bill Haney said, “He should have shown the sparring video of him and Devin. It wasn’t close. It was like Floyd was looking in the mirror. It was before the Conor McGregor fight that he finally decided that he could no longer be in boxing with no real fighters. Devin is the one who stamped that.”

Bill also informed Floyd Mayweather that he was aware that the championship baton should be passed, so he decided to pass it on to Devin but didn’t disclose his actual reasons.
