Devin Haney- ‘The Dream’ and his Diet

The American boxer relies a lot on healthy vegetables and greeneries. So, he puts out junk and fried dishes from his menu and mostly consumes green vegetables. There have been times when a bowl full of greens has been his main course meal.

Not to forget, Haney also excludes pizza. However, it seems a post-fight pizza is like a tradition to him. In a meeting with Barbershop conversations, Haney and his father have revealed their love for pizza.

Meanwhile, Showtime boxing broke out a few secrets of Devin Haney’s diet in 2019. Per record, the WBC lightweight champion prefers to eat a healthy but light breakfast. Hence, he seems a huge fan of oatmeals and fresh fruits. The undefeated boxer also posted a tweet in the past citing his love for oatmeal.

Haney has partnered with SNAC nutrition and apparently receives umpteen nutrition products and meal charts from the company. Hence, diet plays a pivotal role in his everyday life.

Prior to Haney’s fight against Zaur Abdullaev in 2019, Matchroom Promotions also showed us a glimpse of Haney’s breakfast. No wonder it was full of fruits like a banana. But the young champion also added boiled eggs to the list.

Meanwhile, Haney also added gallons of water to his diet. Hence, a pro boxer needs to remain hydrated, and ‘The Dream’ righty reflected its importance. Apart from that, Haney boasts a shredded physique.
