Devin Haney has been fined $25,000 for pushing Vasyl Lomachenko during the weigh-ins leading up to their May fight.

The Nevada Athletic Commission imposed the penalty on Tuesday, initially withholding a substantial $400,000 from Haney’s purse following the physical altercation with Lomachenko, which occurred one day prior to their scheduled bout.

Under the terms of the settlement agreement, Haney will be required to pay a $25,000 fine, as well as $326 in prosecution fees. These fines will be deducted from the amount already held by the commission, with the remaining balance of $400,000 being released to Haney.

Initially, the commission had withheld $400,000, equivalent to 10 percent of Haney’s $4 million purse, after filing a disciplinary complaint against the boxer.

Following the incident, Haney commented on his actions, stating, “That was just the beginning. Did you see how effortlessly I pushed him? He’s smaller than me, and I intend to assert my dominance.”

Ultimately, Haney emerged victorious with a unanimous decision over Lomachenko, maintaining an undefeated record of 30-0 in his career.

Consequently, Haney will now recover the majority of the $400,000 sum previously withheld from his purse, as the commission has determined the appropriate punishment for his transgression.
