Plante on the result of the Haney vs. Garcia fight: "We have to stop assuming that a loss means a fighter sucks"

Caleb Plant, former super middleweight champion of the world, reacted to Devin Haney's loss to Ryan Garcia.

"We have to stop assuming that a defeat means a fighter sucks. You all miss the golden era when everyone fought everyone else, but back then ALL the great fighters had losses, they were stopped (Duran gave up the fight in the middle of the fight, does he suck?) Thanks to both fighters for making it a great night," Plante wrote on his social media.

Recall, Haney lost to Garcia by majority decision of the judges, having been knocked down several times over the course of the fight. At the same time, Devin retained the championship belt, because Garcia failed the weigh-in before the fight.
