At this point, Ryan Garcia might as well start training his thumbs instead of his moves in the ring! His social media game is touching new highs, while his prowess in the ring is just trying to keep up. Unsurprisingly, the Victorville native has launched another social media rant, which he is now famous for, with just a few days left in his clash against Devin Haney!

The super lightweight duo is slated to face each other on April 20 at Barclays Stadium in Brooklyn, New York. They even came face-to-face yesterday at the historic Empire State Building in Manhattan, New York, to promote the upcoming fisticuffs. However, Garcia might have felt the past two months of weirdness on social media wasn’t enough to draw eyes to his war against Devin Haney. So, here he is with a few more X posts. 

Bruce Lee, Tupac and Puerto Rico

Turning to X, the 25-year-old boxer wrote, “Bruce Lee WASS GOOD.” If that seems hard to make sense of, everyone’s in for a bewildering ride going forward. Garcia goes on to share the title of one of Shakur’s songs, claiming Shakur is still alive. He wrote, “‘Play hit em up.’ TUPAC IS ALIVE AND WELL. Puerto Rico he’s chilling.”

If this wasn’t enough, Garcia and his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, got embroiled in another controversy soon afterward. Garcia and Haney were involved in throwing the ceremonial first pitch in the New York Mets vs. Pittsburgh Pirates match. However, out of nowhere, both fighters were banned, so Garcia and his promoter were escorted out. 

In response, Garcia did what he had become so good at doing. “I will expose the Mets so bad and the mlb,” wrote Garcia in a post on X. “Just look up Reddit for mlb dark secrets. And it’s not for the feint of heart. I Don’t think Elon letting me post that,” he wrote in another. Meanwhile, the Victorville native has also claimed he had gotten engaged.

However, that’s not all! A few hours before this tweet, Garcia even revealed that he and Bond were expecting a child. “You weren’t supposed to say that tho Bruh You can’t say these things But yes, she is preggy.” Not so long ago, after the birth of his third child, Garcia had announced his divorce from his wife, Andrea Celina.

There are barely three days left for the fight, but Ryan Garcia’s focus seems to be on social media. Whether his months of antics pay off in the end is yet to be seen, but the April 20 fight might as well dictate what happens to Garcia next. What did you think of Garcia’s latest rampage on X?
