Haney took to X to write, “I’m not going to that press conference tomorrow..” which comes after the heated exchange between him and Garcia in the last face off in LA. Garcia came off arrogant as usual and was met with equal thrashing by Haney. ‘The Dream’ called out Garcia for allegedly being drunk. During the face off, Garcia tried to become more and more assertive with time while Haney seemingly kept his cool.

Haney further wrote in his tweet, “this dude Ryan wasting mine & everybody’s time foh” calling Garcia out for wasting everyone’s time the way he is acting. Furthermore, Haney kept taking vicious shots at Garcia saying, “We’ve seen Ryan quit before” and putting more and more pressure on Garcia. Amid all of this, Bill Haney did not leave a golden opportunity to shoot at Floyd Mayweather who has shown himself siding with KingRy. Let us see what Bill had to say.

‘KingRy’ claimed that Floyd Mayweather had shown him the video of Gervonta Davis knocking out ‘The Dream’ during a sparring match. This prompted Mayweather to be called out by the latter’s father, Bill Haney. Haney said in the press conference, “It ain’t going to work Floyd. He should’ve showed the sparring video of him and Devin while he’s showing all those sparring videos. And it was 6-0, it wasn’t close.”
