Devin Haney vs. Jorge Linares 29/5/21
World Boxing Council lightweight champion Devin Haney (25-0, 15 KOs), is readying to face ace former three time world champion, Jorge Linares (47-5, 29 KOs), on May 29 at the Michelob Ultra Las Vegas Arena, on a billboard that will be broadcast on DAZN.
In his most recent bout, Haney defeated former world champion Yuriorkis Gamboa (30-4, 18 Kos) by unanimous decision in twelve rounds. Linares has not fought for more than a year, and after testing positive for coronavirus, he recovered and resumed training.
Haney is preparing at Victor Conte’s SNAC training facility in California, where he discussed some prospects for the forthcoming contest:
“The first time I came to SNAC, I was in training camp with Shawn Porter. I was fourteen. As time went on, I started to get to know Victor more and more. SNAC training is the complete package, be it recovery, vitamins, track training, weight reduction protocol all in one, and that’s what makes me strong. My best performances come from training here at SNAC.
“Linares has been at the highest level that I can remember. He is by far the best opponent to date. I was happy that this was a fight that boxing fans would appreciate. I am very focused on fighting Linares to get a great victory and defend my title.”
