Devin Haney Discusses Training With Floyd Mayweather

WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney generated headlines this week when video emerged of a training session with five division world champion Floyd Mayweather.

Mayweather has been discussing the possibility of transitioning to become a trainer in the sport. The decision to turn his direction to the corner, was inspired by the recent passing of his uncle and head trainer Roger Mayweather.

The 43-year-old Mayweather retired from the sport in August of 2017, after stopping UFC superstar Conor McGregor in the tenth round at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.


Haney had previously worked with Mayweather's father, Floyd Mayweather Sr.

He looks forward to gaining more boxing knowledge from the most financially successful fighter in the history of combat sports.

"It’s been going on for a couple of days now. The first day we worked out it was all over Instagram and stuff like that. I mean me and Floyd have talked on numerous occasions. As you saw there’s numerous videos of me and him working in the gym showing me different tips. So we finally got in a real training session and it went well," Haney said to IFL TV.

"As of now we haven’t spoken on anything, anything long-term but you know whenever Floyd can give me tips and work with me he always does so I have to thank him for that. Floyd knows so much of the game. He’s accomplished so much he’s been in the game for so long. He became world champion the year that I was born so there’s so much that he can teach me and I learned so much.

"I definitely feel like it was destiny. I’ve worked with Jeff Mayweather, Floyd Sr, Roger and now Floyd Jr so it was definitely destiny and I’m very thankful for this. It’s still unbelievable to me."

jury is out on whether Floyd will become a good trainer, but haney should soak up that knowledge whenever he has the chance.

The question that needs an answer is why would a promoter train his fighter's opponent. This says a lot about Mayweather the person. If I'm Tank Davis I'm looking for another promoter one I can trust.

Pretty sure he is a better trainer than you are a hater.

Mayweather knows Haney is 4 times better than his fat stupid thug Gervonta. Haney looks determined like Mayweather was.
