Devin Haney Signs Promotional Deal With Eddie Hearn

Matchroom Boxing USA and Eddie Hearn are delighted to announce the signing of Lightweight star Devin ‘The Dream’ Haney.
 
Haney (21-0 13 KOs) has raced to the top of the Lightweight rankings and is on the cusp of fighting for his first World title ahead of turning 21 in November.
 
‘The Dream’ has rattled off 21 wins since turning pro in Mexico in 2015 at 16 years of age following a stellar amateur career that saw him crowned junior amateur champion seven times and plunder 130 wins.

The Las Vegas-based talent now sits at number three in the WBC rankings where the Lightweight title is now vacant, five in the WBA, eight in the WBO and ten in the IBF - and Haney will look to make a big statement on his debut with Matchroom Boxing USA and DAZN when he takes on Antonio Moran (24-3 17 KOs) at the MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland on May 25.
 
“I’m excited about my multi-million dollar partnership with Matchroom Boxing.  All this hard work is finally paying off. This is a huge chapter in my career. I have a co-promotional deal with Matchroom Boxing, Eddie Hearn is the perfect guy for me to go in business with.
 
“While Matchroom will provide the infrastructure, together we will select the best opponents to showcase my talents in the sexiest cities in the world.  I’m the future of the sport, and without a doubt in my mind... I’m going to continue to set the boxing world on fire.  Matchroom and DAZN now have another superstar... ME!”
 
“Antonio Moran is a tough fighter with a lot of experience.  He has been in the ring with good opposition.  He fought Jose Pedraza to a decision last year, so I know he comes to fight.  I expect nothing less from him on May 25.  I’ve been in the gym working hard.  Everyone knows that I stay ready and May 25 can’t come soon enough.  On fight night the world will see I’m ready for anyone.”
 
“Devin Haney is a superstar - no two ways about it,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “At just 20 years old he has already racked up 21 victories, untouched as a pro and has become one of the most talked about fighters in America.
 
“The big fights are right in front of him, he is ready for anyone and we look forward to a wonderful partnership together. DAZN has another exceptional talent on their platform and we look forward to his Matchroom and DAZN debut on the huge Usyk vs. Takam card May 25 at MGM National Harbor.”
 
Haney’s clash with Moran is part of a huge night of action in Maryland as Ukrainian pound-for-pound star Oleksandr Usyk moves up to Heavyweight after dominating the Cruiserweight division, and takes on former World title challenger Carlos Takam.  In addition, rising Heavyweight Croatian talent Filip Hrgovic takes on Gregory Corbin in his US debut, and WBA World Super-Lightweight champion Jessica McCaskill looks to unify the division against WBA champion Anahi Sanchez.

[QUOTE=Scipio2009;19697973]It wouldn't, and even DAZN knows this; the public hope is that Alvarez-Jacobs in May, Joshua-TBA in June, and Golovkin-TBA in June will be enough action to hopefully push the DAZN subscriber number over a million, lol. Beyond that, Charlo…

[QUOTE=Cobra Curry;19697096]I see what you mean, but he needs that victory to validate himself. I'm no fan of Canelo's business practices but he is clearly the man at 160 as things stand. Without that win, he'd be Greg Page to…

[QUOTE=Bronx2245;19697073]Charlo vs. GGG on DAZN, would be seen by multi-million people too! Honestly, Charlo would care less, because DAZN would pay [B]BIG[/B] to sign Jermall! He could get a co-promotional deal like Devon Haney![/QUOTE] It wouldn't, and even DAZN knows…

[QUOTE=Scipio2009;19697011]Franchise champion or not, the WBC doesn't want or, really, can't afford the feds possibly getting in their business and flipping stones. Canelo will roll an ankle and be declared emeritus champion or whatever, but Charlo is either getting his…

[QUOTE=Scipio2009;19697029]Charlo-Derevyenchenko and Charlo-Hurd will be seen by likely multimillion people; Charlo on DAZN may be seen by 100k-200k people, if that. Greatness that no one sees doesn't matter to the public.[/QUOTE]Charlo vs. GGG on DAZN, would be seen by multi-million…
