Garcia makes it a point to share training footage frequently with fans. In the latest one, rather, he switched roles, training a novice whose personal life, not long ago, made it to the news. But then for ‘KingRy’ too, the fight with Haney comes on the back of both personal and professional challenges. At home, on one hand, he celebrated the birth of his son, Henry Leo.

From a roller-coaster to a real fight

Both Devin Haney and ‘KingRy’ know each other from their amateur days. So the chances of a much-vaunted professional clash became high as talks proceeded. Till December ended, everything seemed fine. But come January, Garcia announced that instead of Haney, he would be fighting Rolando Romero. It must have surely shocked many fans who badly wanted to see him fight Haney. However, to some, a line-up with ‘Rollie’ wasn’t that bad either.
