The ETCs: Devin Haney Won’t Run From Anything

Ahead of his fight this weekend against Regis Prograis, Devin Haney stopped by The ETCs to talk boxing, business, fashion, and much more.

Devin Haney accomplished everything there is to accomplish in the 135-pound division. The youngest undisputed champion ever could have simply coasted from there, but that’s not how he’s built. He still has goals. He still has work to do — in and out of the ring.

Haney stopped by The ETCs to discuss just that with Eddie Gonzalez before his fight this weekend against Regis Prograis. In a wide-ranging conversation that covered boxing, business, music, fashion, and more, one thing became clear: Haney is not afraid to blaze his own trail, conquering any challenges that stand in his way.

Or, as he put it, when Gonzalez said his opponents were chasing him:

“I don’t know about chasing me because I’m not running.”

Haney outwardly says that he’s “here to be caught” — that he wants to face the best and has no problem with getting in the ring to prove it.

That attitude extends beyond the sport itself. Rather than signing with a big-name promoter, he and his father went at it themselves. Today, they have Devin Haney Productions, helping the fighter and setting him up to stay in the game long after retirement.

So get used to hearing Haney’s name — even if you don’t follow his sport. He takes pride in his crossover appeal, with boxing fans and casuals alike recognizing him as a rising star in sports and business.
