During any big fight, there are always all kinds of subplots and such was the case with Shawn Porter’s big victory over Adrien Broner this past weekend inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Following the match, Floyd Mayweather, a man Broner looks to as a mentor, suggested the fighter should have probably rested following his weigh in for Porter, as he instead was inside of the famed Mayweather Boxing Club checking out some sparring on the eve of his 32nd professional boxing match.
Who exactly was Broner checking out during that aforementioned setting? One of the men was actually 16-year old prospect Devin Haney, who is actually eyeing a pro debut in the coming months.
Haney put in some tough rounds with Baltimore prospect Gervonta Davis (11-0, 10 KO’s) and loved being caught up in the moment.
Hustle Boss caught up with Haney inside of City Athletic Boxing and he shared his side of the match.
“It was great work,” Haney reflected. “Gervonta is a great fighter. It was an epic day in the doghouse. There were about 300 people, the gym was going crazy.”
