In March this year, with a little less than four weeks left for the fight against Devin Haney, Ryan Garcia weighed 154.1 lbs i.e. 14 lbs above the required weight of 140 lbs. As a result, a section of the boxing world thought ‘KingRy’ was not serious about the Haney fight for the WBC Super-Lightweight title on April 20th. However, Garcia, who has yet to come down to 140 lbs for the match, ridiculed Haney’s latest media workout.

On that note, while commenting on Garcia’s shape, Haney promised to knock out the former. But on the other hand, Garcia was confident that he would “cook” ‘The Dream’. Here is what happened.

To promote the upcoming fight on April 20th, the WBC Super-Lightweight champion Devin Haney held a media workout in Las Vegas. In the presence of Oscar De La Hoya and Bill Haney, ‘The Dream’ displayed his power and speed. However, his rival Ryan Garcia remained totally unimpressed. As a result, the 25-year-old, who organized his media workout inside trainer Derrick James‘ gym in Dallas, Texas, mocked ‘The Dream’. “Devin Haney’s media workout, that s**t was weak,” he said.

Ya’ll were hyping that up when he was hitting the body thing. I swear bro, I could teach a 12-year-old kid to hit harder. [And] I’m not even capping,” Ryan Garcia added. “Like, you bring me a 12-year-old kid, I’m gon’ make him hit way sharper than Devin Haney. I’m gonna put that motherf****r down, watch,” he concluded.

At this, after talkSPORT correspondent Michael Benson shared Garcia’s brief clip on X, Devin Haney replied saying, “Ryan still fat…Wallahi I knock him out 4/20!

Moreover, it is worth mentioning that Garcia promised to retire provided Haney knocks him out in the first round of their fight. Anyway, while Haney hopes for a KO, Garcia told the media that he will “cook” ‘The Dream’.
