There's much more on the line than the WBC belt. The 22-year-old is out to prove that he belongs at the very top of the division, while the 35-year-old is looking to restore some pride after being written off as an old man.
Haney was elevated to WBC Lightweight champion in 2019 at the age of 20, becoming the youngest world champion in boxing, and he's successfully defended his title twice - but this showdown with Linares represents a huge step up.
Haney himself has shown plenty of respect for Linares, who's held world titles across three weight classes: Featherweight, Super-Featherweight, and Lightweight. The Venezuelan has won 47 of his 52 professional fights, with 29 of those coming by knockout. But does he still have those fast hands?
Follow our guide below to catch this unmissable fight - Mayweather vs Logan Paul this is not! Here's how to watch Devin Haney vs Jorge Linares online and get a Haney vs Linares live stream, no matter where you are in the world.

Out of the country? DAZN subscribers who find themselves abroad for the fight will find they can access their account just like they would at home - wherever you are in the world, all you need is the help of a good VPN. We explain more on that point below.
How to watch Devin Haney vs Jorge Linares if you're away from your country
As we say, DAZN has this wrapped up pretty much everywhere. But if you're abroad and discover that your coverage is geo-blocked, then the only alternative that we know is to use a VPN to dial in to a country that is showing the fight.
The software is perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address and appear to be in a completely different location - and all through a safe, encrypted connection. Here's how to get started.
Use a VPN to live stream Haney vs Linares anywhere
ExpressVPN is the world's top VPN
We've tested all of the major VPN services and we rate ExpressVPN as the absolute best. It's compatible with loads of devices including iOS, Android, Amazon Fire Stick, PlayStation, Apple TV and such, and we found it secure, speedy and simple-to-use.
Another great perk is the fact that it comes with a 30-day money back guarantee and 3-months FREE, so you can see if it's right for you with no strings attached.
Once you've downloaded the software, just follow the prompts to install it then select the location you want to relocate your IP address to - it really is that easy.
Remember, there are loads of benefits to using a VPN beyond just helping you regain access to streaming services and content from abroad. One of the biggest is security: by using encrypted tunnels, VPNs give you a robust first-line of defense against cybercriminals and government snooping. This makes everyday tasks like online shopping and banking much safer, and many people choose to use one for that reason alone.
However, those looking to subscribe to DAZN for the first time may find the service manages to effectively block certain VPNs at the point of creating an account. VPNs most notably encounter obstacles starting from scratch with DAZN Canada, though in other places like the US our general sports streaming VPN recommendation was working fine in 2021.
And if you've already got an account, a VPN should work wherever you are to help you regain access to pre-existing subscriptions.
