Devin Haney’s Father Opens Up On Likely Absence From The Kambosos Fight
It is the best feeling in the world for a father to see his son on his biggest day. However, things were not as straightforward for Devin Haney’s (27-0-0) father. Bill Haney said that it was anything but easy to see his son off for arguably the biggest moment in his young career.
In an interview with ESPN, the elder Haney said that the rumors of him not accompanying his son were true, and he cannot be with the WBC 135-pound titleholder in Australia for his bout against George Kambosos on June 4.
This is due to decades-old criminal charges from the 1990s. Even though he served his time, Australia’s visa laws make it difficult for anyone who has been imprisoned for 12 mounts or more to enter the country.
Despite the absence, the elder Haney believes that his son has only gained motivation since his absence.
“You must know that Devin gets better when the going gets tough for him. My absence will bring out the best version of my son. However, it was tough to see him go.”
