Heavyweight Cassius Chaney (13-0, 7 KOs), 31, has re-signed with career-long promoter Main Events, the company announced Wednesday. Chaney, a pro since 2015, will have the first fight of the new deal Nov. 3 (Facebook Watch) on the Golden Boy Fight Night card at the Aviator in Brooklyn, New York, that is headlined by the Sullivan Barrera-Seanie Monaghan light heavyweight fight. “Cassius has so much potential,” Main Evens CEO Kathy Duva said. “It was a pleasure to work with him from his pro debut to get him to this point in his career and now, with his re-signing, to be able to take him to the next level. The heavyweight division better be ready for him.” Chaney, who lives in Connecticut, has returned home to his native Baltimore to live with his mother while he trains under Kevin Cunningham. “Like anything, when you're back home not worrying about too many things, training comes easier,” Chaney said. “The benefits of being back with my mom, eating her food, the gym isn't that far. I don't know too many people. I train, and I go back home.”
