DEVIN HANEY vs. JORGE LINARES
Michelob ULTRA Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada 29/5/21
Devin Haney will defend his World Boxing Council lightweight crown against former multi champion Jorge Linares this Saturday at the Michelob ULTRA Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The 22-year-old has built an undefeated record of 25-0-0 with 15 KOs. Devin moved from a young age to Las Vegas with his family. The first time he entered a gym was when he was seven years old. His father took him after a tussle at school, in order to channel his brimming energies plus latent talent. It proved a crucial step in forming a future world champion.
Back then, his immediate future lay in Mexico, once the State of California denied him his license at the age of 17. He starred in his first fights in the north of Mexico and we can find some of his first fights on YouTube.
The Mexican influence was such that his father has commented: “We went Tijuana for boxing. We know the spirit, and the energy it signifies. We grew up in the Bay Area (of San Francisco), and we have Hispanic friends with whom we grew up. as neighbours. They stand up for what they represent. So I have deep respect for the Hispanic community and for Mexicans.”
Devin also has a history with Floyd Mayweather. The young man who sparred him, also had the opportunity to have received valuable advice from the legendary boxing sage.
