Undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney recently claimed that the Nevada State Athletic Commission fined him big time after shoving Vasiliy Lomachenko during the ceremonial weigh-in before this past weekend’s massive boxing contest.

“This guy is a fucking sore loser,” Haney wrote on social media. “Get this privileged sore loser out of boxing, he makes excuses as he goes! Take your loss like a man and stop crying. It was set up for you to win for the third time in your career and you failed! Tell the commission give me my $400k back for that push!”

Haney’s purse has been estimated to be $4 million. The push reportedly forced Lomachenko to seek medical assistance to make sure he was still fit to box.

For MMA fans, the huge fine might come as a surprise as they are used to seeing UFC fighters push each other to hell and back during face-offs.

The time when Drakkar Klose suffered a whiplash concussion due to Jeremy Stephens brutal weigh-in shove back in April 2021 is just one example that comes to mind.
