  Devin Haney Training Camp Quotes

Undefeated WBC Lightweight Champion, Devin ĎThe Dreamí Haney (25-0, 18 KOs), is scheduled to battle former multiple division world champion, Jorge Linares (47-5, 29 KOs), on Saturday May 29 at the Michelob ULTRA Arena at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The event will air live worldwide on DAZN in association with Matchroom, Devin Haney Promotions, and Golden Boy Promotions.

Haney, who is entering the last week of training camp, talks about his matchup with Linares, what a win will do for his career, fighting at home, and more.

On his recent training camp:

ďItís been a great eight-week camp. I started in Las Vegas, got some light sparring, then traveled to the Bay Area. I spent three weeks training with Victor Conte and Remi Korchemny at SNAC. The remaining weeks, Iíve been in Las Vegas, getting great sparring work with local pros that have been pushing me hard. Iím ready! The world will see, Iím the best fighter on the planet.Ē

On his matchup with Jorge Linares:

ďLinares is a great fighter that has a lot left in the tank. He has held multiple world championships in three weight classes and heís by far the biggest step up in my career. I give my dad Bill Haney, who is my trainer, a lot of credit, we know exactly what it takes to get this done on May 29th. My skills are on another level and I will make the necessary adjustments, wear him down and completely dominate this fight.Ē

On what a win will do for his career:

ďThis is the biggest fight of my career. A victory against Linares should gain me a lot of respect. Everyone knows that Linares is a dangerous fighter and winning this fight gives more reasons to all of the writers, fans, and boxing insiders, to campaign the unification fight with Teůfimo Lůpez, or at the very least, a world title defense against Ryan Garcia. Iím putting the pressure on them.Ē

On fighting at home in Las Vegas:

ďLas Vegas is where I currently reside. Iím thrilled to have an opportunity to fight in front of my family and friends. Iíve only fought in Vegas a couple of times, way back in 2016, before I became a world champion. Iím 100% ready to show up and show out. Las Vegas is the mecca of boxingís biggest shows and for me this is just the beginning. Now that COVID restrictions are loosening, Iím encouraging all the fans from around the world to come out and enjoy a great night of boxing. Itís going to be fireworks.Ē
