Haney sparked the head to head by questioning Loma’s absence since his defeat to Teofimo Lopez.

He tweeted: “Where tf is Loma?”

Despite not tagging the former world champ, the 33-year-old European replied three days later and angrily hit back accusing Haney of hiding behind his computer.

He said: “I’m here! I’m waiting for you cowards to decide on a real fight, and not on a Twitter fight.”

Lomachenko seems to have shied away from the limelight since suffering only his second career defeat to Lopez in October.

Meanwhile Haney defended his WBC title with a points victory over Yuriorkis Gamboa the month after.

Despite Haney’s 25 consecutive wins, any fight with Loma would be his toughest test yet although the rest of the Twitter exchange suggests he isn’t scared.

Haney: “Waiting is not your best bet I would think u learned that from the Teo fight.”


Loma: “Waiting is your favorite action, because you still haven’t fought with anyone.”

Haney: “I was definitely waiting to fight you when I was your MANDATORY & you petitioned for the Franchise Title!”

Loma: “You know perfectly well that it was not my decision!

“But you shouldn’t complain about it, because after that they sent you the belt by mail.”

The lightweight division is full of talent at the moment with Lopez, Ryan Garcia and Gervonta Davis all looking to be king of the ring at 135lbs.
