On Friday night, in Tijuana, Mexico, former amateur standout Devin “The Dream” Haney made a successful professional debut in Tijuana, Mexico.
Haney has been creating a huge buzz in the Las Vegas area as one of the top amateurs to look out for and his sparring sessions are always eye-catching and worth watching. Having just turned 17, Haney and his team have been eyeing a professional debut for the past year and it was great to see it come off.
Needing just 35 seconds, Haney ended matters early, as a right hand had his opponent reeling around the ring, with the referee wisely calling the action moments later.
Check below for a closer look and give Devin a follow on Instagram for more updates from Mexico.
