Devin Haney Media Workout Quotes
Highly touted undefeated lightweight contender, Devin "The
Dream" Haney (21-0, 13 KOs), who is scheduled to face
Antonio Moran (24-3, 17 KOs) at the MGM National Harbor in
Oxon Hill, Maryland on May 25, held a media workout
yesterday at City Boxing Gym in Las Vegas.
Here is what Haney and his father and trainer Bill Haney had
On his recent training camp:
"This has been a really good training camp. We started camp
in the Bay Area training with Victor Conte and sparring Amir
Khan. I was able to get some elite work with not only him
but Mike Dallas as well. So, I started off strong in the
beginning of camp, and when I moved camp back to Las Vegas,
I was sharp. I just wrapped up my final sparring session
before we leave for Maryland. I've put the work in, and my
body feels great. "I'm ready to go."
On facing Antonio Moran:
"Moran is a very tall fighter who brings a lot experience to
the ring. I know he'll be at his very best. He's had two
months to prepare for me. I'm prepared as well for anything
that he's going to bring to on fight night. The fans
watching are in for a treat."
On making his Matchroom Boxing USA and DAZN main event
"I can't wait to showcase my talent on DAZN and show my
partners at Matchroom they made the right choice. I will
prove I'm an elite fighter and I can rise to the
competition. Making my DAZN main event debut in the DMV area
is very special, I get the chance to fight in front of some
great fight fans. I'm going to put on a great show. I have
no doubt in my mind that I'm elevating the sport of boxing
with Matchroom and DAZN by my side. We are changing the
game. May 25th the world will bear witness.
BILL HANEY, Devin's Father and Trainer
On his relationship with his son Devin Haney:
"Me and Devin have always had a great relationship. We
respect each other and understand where the other is coming
from. We have a plan and we are on the same page. He's had a
great camp and fans can expect to see a fighter that's ready
for a World Title.
On the recent signing with Matchroom Boxing USA:
"Signing a Co-promotional agreement with Matchroom Boxing
has been a blessing. Eddie Hearn is someone I have a lot of
respect for. All the sacrifices DHP made as a team paid off
when we inked this deal. Now it's time to show the world who
the next superstar in boxing is. Together with Matchroom and
DAZN no one will stop us."
On how his son matches up with Antonio Moran:
"This is not an easy fight stylistically because Moran is so
tall, I believe he is listed at 6'0. That's a little freaky
for a lightweight. Needless to say this is the type of fight
he needs. We want to show the world that Devin can make
adjustments with any fighter out there. Antonio Moran has
faced some very good fighters, but the world will see Devin
is on a different level.
