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.
