MatchRoom Boxing Press Conference with Devin “The Dream” Haney!
Article by Rick Mohamed
Brawlers Sports Media CEO Rick Mohamed (this writer) was live on Eddie Hearn’s press conference today live from the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood Florida. Matchroom’s Hearn made a statement that Yuriorkis Gamboa is a big threat and a big test for champion Devin Haney.
He said this based on Gamboa’s performance vs Gervonta “Tank” Davis and fighting with a torn achilles tendon in that fight. Eddie spoke about the problems and how well Gamboa was boxing Tank Davis. When Brawlers Sports Media asked Devin Haney is it fair to say that to wow the boxing community you would probably need an impressive stoppage over Gamboa to raise eyebrows, Haney responded that he wants to look and deliver his absolute best ever.
He wants to outperform all of his previous fights, if you will. Haney stated that a stoppage would definitely be huge and a big WOW to parties that are into boxing. The champ says that he has built a gym in his home to properly train with no interference due to COVID19. He also said that after he had the injury to his shoulder from previous fights he was able to heal, rest, and have some fun while having that down time to heal.
Haney says he had a strong camp and feels great moving ahead to this Saturday night’s event. Haney also stated that he looks at the Franchise belt that Vasily Loma Lomachenko held is nothing more than a belt that allows you to duck the fights and fighters you don’t want.
He also talked about a possible Teofimo Lopez Vs Haney after this fight. This would be an explosive fight and a great way to start boxing’s 2021 calendar. We shall see.
