Devin Haney on fighting Regis Prograis
In a recent interview with Fight Hype, Devin Haney shared his thoughts on fighting Regis Prograis and explained how his common fighting style won’t help him secure a win. “I’m happy to be bringing this fight back home.
Tickets are doing amazing. I couldn’t ask for a better camp,” Haney said, as quoted by boxingnews24.com. “He has no skills. We all know he’s a one-trick pony, He wants to go try and land a big left hand and knock you out.
That won’t work. I’ll go in there and show him that skills pay the bills. He has nothing but power”.
Devin Haney on his next opponent
“Now, it just makes for me to go in on December 9th and put everything that we’ve been working on to work, 147 is the next weight class up.
So that weight class is an interest. Not only Keith Thurman, but other guys as well. It all starts with me being victorious on December 9th. Once I’m victorious, I can tell you who I want next or who I have my eyes on, of course, Teofimo is great for boxing and is a fight that can be made, but like I said.
It all starts with December 9th. I’ve got to be victorious. Once I’m victorious, I can tell you”.
