The first week of 2019 is an off week in boxing, but it’s back to work Friday, January 11, at StageWorks in Shreveport, Louisiana, as 20 year old undefeated lightweight prospect Devin Haney (20-0, 13KO) returns to the ring.
Haney, a native of San Francisco who goes by the nickname “The Dream”, was 2-0 in 2018 with a 9th round TKO win over Mason Menard and earned a 10 round unanimous decision over Juan Carlos Burgos.
He will be entering the ring against Xolisani Ndongeni of South Africa, who brings a perfect record of 25-0, 13KO. Ndongeni last fought in August, winning by 5th round TKO in a scheduled 12 round bout.
The Haney/Ndongeni 10 round bout will headline the first ShoBox The New Generation of 2019 on Showtime at 10pm EST on Friday, January 11th.
