INTERVIEW: Devon Currer
Boxing pundit, ring announcer and commentator Devon Currer talks the psychology of the ring, white-collar boxing and Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
Boxing has interested Devon from a young age. Asked on a whim, he accepted a role one day to announce some matches, and the rest, as they say, is history.
“Several years and hundreds of shows later,” he says, “I have become known in sporting circles as the boxing ring announcer. In March 2013 I announced the welter weight world title fight between Matthew Hatton and Chris van Heerden. This was my first TV show which happened to be LIVE throughout Africa and the Middle East on Super Sport and the UK and USA on Boxnation. Since then I have announced and served as a play-by-play TV commentator to ETV Boxing. Not limited to boxing, I have also announced numerable MMA fight cards (Cape Fight League being the most prominent which airs on Blackbelt TV).”
