Ahead of the October 15 showdown at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia, ESPN presents Rooted in Oakland: Devin Haney, a 30-minute profile of the Undisputed Lightweight World Champion, Devin “The Dream” Haney (28-0,15 KOs).

Ranked #1 on the recent Top 25 Under 25, the 23-year old Bay Area native travels Down Under once again to fight Australia’s George Kambosos Jr. (20-1, 10 KOs) in a highly anticipated rematch.
