At the moment, Victor Conte’s SNAC training facility in San Carlos, Calif., is playing host to three top training camps as former champions Demetrius Andrade and Daniel Jacobs have been joined by 19-year old upstart Devin “The Dream” Haney as each fighter pushes towards their next ring assignment.

Haney (19-0, 13 KO’s) returns to the ring on Sep. 28, where he will face off with former title-challenger Juan Carlos Burgos (33-2-2, 21 KO’s) at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif. on SHOWTIME. On Oct. 20, Andrade (25-0, 16 KO’s) will face off with WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (26-0, 12 KO’s) from the TD Garden in Boston, Mass., in a fight that will be aired on Sky Sports and the DAZN streaming app. And Jacobs (34-2, 29 KO’s), known as “The Miracle Man”, will meet unbeaten Sergey Derevyanchenko (12-0, 10 KO’s) on Oct. 27, with the vacant IBF middleweight title on the line from the Theater inside of Madison Square Garden on HBO’s airwaves.

SNAC’s world-renowned track coach Remi Korchemny, is working hand in hand with the fighters and putting them through various drills.

Haney is notorious around Las Vegas gyms for his tireless work ethic and he admits that he is relishing the experience in San Carlos.


“I’m out here working hard with two of the best fighters in the world,” said Devin Haney. “There is no place like the SNAC facility and the training we are doing is very advanced. Remi is incredible, and I see all-around improvements in my strength and conditioning. I’m going to be at my very best on fight night.”

This is somewhat of a return to the big stage for Andrade, who is dying to become a champion yet again.

“I’ve been working with Victor Conte for many years now and there’s no doubt, I’m with the best group of trainers in the world,” Andrade stated. “With Haney and Jacobs out here working side by side with me, it is very competitive, we all want to be first in all the drills. This is the type of training that will take a fighter to the next level. Billy Joe Saunders will find out what it’s like to face an elite athlete when he steps in the ring with me. He’s in big trouble.”

Jacobs trains under the tutelage of his longtime trainer Andre Rozier and admits that this new scenery is a welcome change of pace.

“I travel across the United States to train with Victor Conte at the SNAC facility with the best strength and conditioning coaches, Remi Korchemny and Mike Bazzel,” Jacobs said. “With Boo Boo and Devin in camp, training is very intense on a daily basis and the competition is having a major impact on my performance. In addition to the great training we are getting, we are also provided with some of the best supplements.”

The SNAC facility continues to grow and Conte seems thrilled to have these three athletes in his camp.

“It’s a great honor to have three of the best boxers in the world training at my center,” said Conte. “We have nicknamed the SNAC facility ‘The Bee Hive’ because it is always buzzing with good energy. The SNAC brand is rapidly growing, and these three world class fighters are a major reason why.”
