It’s a long-awaited 135-pound division showdown in Las Vegas this evening, as Devin Haney places his undisputed lightweight titles on the line against Vasiliy Lomachenko.
Saturday’s showdown marks San Francisco fighter Haney’s first appearance in the ring since his two fights against George Kambosos Jr. in Australia last year, which saw him add the WBA, IBF and WBO title to the WBC belt he has held since 2019.
Ukrainian star Lomachenko was widely regarded as one of the world’s best pound-for-pound boxers, only to see his career derailed following a shattering points defeat to Teofimo Lopez in October 2020.
The 35-year-old has since mounted an impressive comeback following that devastating loss, with a big win over Jamaine Ortiz in October on points last year setting the groundwork for tonight’s title fight — as well as a spell serving as a territorial defense volunteer for his country following Russia’s invasion.
Here are all the details of tonight’s big fight, including start time, how to watch it and more.

How to watch Devin Haney vs. Vasiliy Lomachenko from anywhere
If you find yourself unable to view Haney vs. Lomachenko locally, you may need a different way to watch the fight — that’s where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on the day by encrypting your traffic, and it’s also a great idea if you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.
With a VPN, you’re able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. So if your internet provider or mobile carrier has stuck you with an IP address that incorrectly shows your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can correct that problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, nonblackout area. Most VPNs, like our Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPN, make it really easy to do this.
Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.
