Born in Elderslie, Deveney first made his mark as an amateur, representing the UK at the 1998 Olympics in Seoul at bantamweight.He made his professional debut in February 1991 with a points win over the unbeaten John George. A mixed record in his first four years as a professional included defeats at the hands of Barry Jones and Elvis Parsley, but in January 1995 he got a shot at the vacant British featherweight title against Wilson Docherty; Deveney won narrowly on points to become British champion. Deveney lost the title in his first defence eight months later, when he was outpointed by Jon Jo Irwin.
