In a recent turn of events, rising boxing star Ryan Garcia has taken shots at Devin Haney, criticizing Haney’s performance and popularity in the sport. In an interview with FirstSportz, Garcia bashed Haney’s recent Pay-Per-View (PPV) buy numbers, claiming that Haney’s supposed lackluster performance in the ring is reflective of his “diva attitude.”
Garcia, who has made a name for himself in the lightweight division, took issue with Haney’s reported 35,000 PPV buys for his recent fight. Garcia argued that Haney’s low PPV numbers were a testament to his lack of star power and inability to draw in fans, despite being the WBC lightweight champion.
Furthermore, Garcia accused Haney of avoiding tougher opponents, suggesting that Haney is “ducking real challenges” in the division. Garcia’s comments have left fans upset, as they were hoping to see a potential showdown between the two talented fighters.
It’s no secret that Garcia and Haney have had their fair share of back-and-forth banter in the past, but Garcia’s recent remarks have reignited the rivalry between the two young boxers.
While Haney has yet to respond to Garcia’s comments, fans are eagerly anticipating a potential matchup between the two fighters in the future. As the lightweight division continues to heat up, it’s clear that tensions between Garcia and Haney are at an all-time high.
As the boxing world waits to see what unfolds next, it’s clear that Garcia’s bold words have added fuel to the fire, creating an even greater buzz around a potential matchup between the two rising stars in the sport.
