Devin Haney vs. Juan Carlos Burgos on September 28, ShoBox

By Steve Kim

19-year old Devin Haney is considered one of the games best prospects. Coming off his ninth round stoppage of Mason Menard on May 11th, he will be making his return to ShoBox on September 28th at Pechanga Resorts and Casino in Temecula, California, has been advised.

Haney (19-0, 13 KO's) will be facing former title challenger, Juan Carlos Burgos (33-2-2, 21 KOs) in a lightweight contest. Rounding out this triple-header is a rematch between lightweights Thomas Mattice and Zhora Hamazaryan, who met on July 20th on ShoBox and it was Mattice winning a highly disputed split decision after eight rounds. Rounding out the telecast will be a super middleweight bout between Cem Kilic and Donnie Marshall.

This card will be the first for Devin Haney Promotions which was just licensed in the state of California.

It was officially announced on Wednesday that Haney had obtained his license, which the boxer is very excited about for the future.
"Getting approved for my promoter's license in California is something I envisioned since I turned professional," said an elated Devin Haney, who now lives in Las Vegas. "Devin Haney Promotions will start doing shows on a modest scale, that will eventually lead to mega events."

"I already have a couple of young hungry prospects on my roster and will be looking to sign other talented fighters as we march forward. I plan to showcase some of the best fighters in boxing."

"We have some big news that will be announced soon. With the partnerships my dad and I have garnered, Devin Haney Promotions will be taking boxing to whole new level.  I couldn't do this without the help of my dad William, and the team he assembled around me.  Together we are going to the top."
