Devin "The Dream" Haney (18-0, 12 KO) prepares for a major step up in competition Friday, May 11th, when he fights Mason Menard (33-2, 24 KO) on Showtime. The young fighter from San Francisco turned professional at age 15. Now 19, Haney will face his toughest test to date.
Mason "Rock Hard Mighty" Menard last fought in March and has shown promise in boxing. In Menards' toughest fight to date, he was defeated by Raymundo Beltran who scored a knockout.
Haney's ShoBox debut was canceled back in February 2018 because his opponent could not get a US visa. The Dream had this to say:
"The boxing world will see something they've never seen a 19-year-old professional boxer do," Haney said. "I'm intimidating and I know it. I'm thankful to Showtime and Mason Menard for giving me this opportunity. Unfortunately for him, he will get a chance to see firsthand what all the hype is about. I've been sparring with former world champions like Jesse Vargas in preparation for this fight.
The fact that I'm fighting in the main event is bringing out the best in me. It's my time to show the world what I'm made of and I'm coming to make a statement in this fight. Mason Menard is in trouble."
