A video was released today showing the infamous sparring beatdown by Gervonta Davis of Devin Haney that occurred years ago. You might want to brace yourself if you’re a Haney fan because it wasn’t pretty to watch. Tank beat the living daylights out of Haney, who needed saving at one point when he was close to being knocked out.

Style-wise, Haney doesn’t look any different than how he fights now. He was trying to escape the punishing shots from Tank Davis, but he couldn’t because he was being pursued all about the ring, and this was with headgear.

In the video, it’s obvious that Haney will never beat Tank Davis. He doesn’t have the power, chin, or ability to escape his pressure. If they were to fight, it would likely be a repeat of their sparring, even if Devin rehydrated to 165 to 170.

Mystery Surrounds the Leak

It’s unclear who released the video. Ryan Garcia posted a link on his social media page today, and you have to wonder if whoever had the video chose to release it after Haney’s behavior during today’s press conference with Kingry in Los Angeles.

Whoever it was that leaked the video, they wanted to knock Haney off his high horse, as he seemed pretty uppity today, and so did his dad, Bill. The two took the press conference and wrecked it with their ham-handed, slash-and-burn approach, not talking about the April 20th fight, making it 100% personal on looks and drugs.

The Haneys were running amok, oblivious to the main objective: to market the DAZN PPV fight against Ryan. You could tell from watching the Haney’s that they both have a chip on their shoulder regarding Ryan and his family, and you just hope they don’t spoil the final press conference.

Haney’s Style Unchanged

As far as I can tell, the only difference in Haney now compared to when Tank Davis whooped him is he’s gained a lot of weight and is perhaps 20 to 30 lbs heavier now. Haney moves a little more now than he did back then, but he wouldn’t be able to escape Tank if they fought, not with his ability to cut off the ring.
