Last weekend, Devin Haney retained his WBC lightweight belt and his undefeated stint against veteran Jorge Linares. Haney was the oppressor from round 1, but the Venezuela boxer had his fair and share moments inside the squared circle. Despite all the adversities, the Californian came on top to secure a win.

However, his performance didn’t quite impress his long-time nemesis, Ryan Garcia. Right after the fight, Garcia took a dig at ‘The Dream’ and asserted it was a good fight, but he would’ve knocked Haney out. DAZN shared this video on its official Twitter handle, prompting a comment from the 21-0 boxer.

All of Garcia‘s comments reached Devin Haney, and he couldn’t stop himself from firing back at Garcia. Taking it to his official Twitter handle, the WBC lightweight champ wrote, “Ryan Garcia is the true definition of a coward… a few weeks ago he wanted sympathy because he was having “Mental Health issues” this week he talking sh*t about me… it’s funny now he came out after Javier fortuna found another opponent,”

‘The Dream’ didn’t stop here as he had a string of tweets to fire at ‘KingRy’.

Haney even accused Garcia of dodging Jorge Linares alongside him. With this recent war of words, the rivalry between the duo seems to have reached another level altogether.

Also, this is not the first time when Haney and Garcia have gone all out against each other. In the past too, the pair have never spared a chance, and they have always assaulted each other with verbal blows.

Moreover, the duo wants to go down and become the best 135-pound boxers on the planet. But only one among the two can fetch that pathway.
