Talented International Lightweight Champion of the World Boxing Council, Devin Haney, has become the new sensation of Boxing, despite his tender age, building and fashioning an impressive undefeated record of 22 fights, 14 of them by KO, since his debut on December 11, 2015.
“The dream” as he is known, is a fighter who`s determined to become the new superstar by conquering the Absolute WBC world crown.
Haney dedicated his life to sport since he was seven years old, blazing through the amateur field where he won 7 national championships, shaping a mighty impressive record of 130-8.
He became the youngest member of the United States National Junior Boxing Team and was the youngest boxer to win the World Youth Championship in Nevada.
Devin will have an exacting test when he faces the WBC Silver champion, Russian Zaur Abdullaev, in a final elimination for the right to dispute the lightweight title of the World Boxing Council, on Friday, September 13 at the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden from New York, with live broadcast by DAZN and Sky Sports.
Abdullaev (11-0 7 KOs), number 4 on the WBC ranking, won the Silver crown in his ninth professional fight in April 2018. This will be his first fight outside his homeland. He`s promising to be a tough test for Haney .
