DEVIN HANEY VS. RYAN GARCIA IS OFFICIAL

Las Vegas, NV (February 10th, 2024)– Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia have made a deal to fight April 20 in Las Vegas for Haney’s junior welterweight championship to be broadcasted on DAZN PPV.

This will Devin Haney’s 3rd and most profitable PPV in his career.

Haney’s 2023 campaign included a thrilling decision victory over future Hall of Famer Vasiliy Lomachenko to retain his undisputed lightweight championship and a shutout victory over Regis Prograis to become a two-division champ in his junior welterweight debut.

Haney (31-0, 15 KOs) will make the first defense of his 140-pound title against Garcia, one of boxing’s top stars.

Garcia (24-1, 20 KOs) owns arguably the quickest hands in boxing. In April, he faced Gervonta Davis in a genuine superfight, an event that generated over 1 million PPV buys and more than $22 million at the gate.

Garcia, 25, wasn’t at his best in the matchup, which he lost via seventh-round TKO from a body shot. After all, the Southern Californian agreed to a 136-pound catchweight where he couldn’t exceed 146 pounds the morning of the fight.

Garcia’s previous two bouts took place at 140 pounds, as did his most recent performance, an eighth-round KO of Oscar Duarte in December. And that’s the weight for the Haney fight, Garcia’s first shot at a world title.

According to ESPN rankings, Haney is ESPN’s No. 1 boxer at 140 pounds, and Garcia is No. 8. Both boxers have sizable social-media followings: Haney has 2.6 million Instagram followers and Garcia has 10.3 million followers.

It’s a fight years in the making, dating to their amateur days when they split were 3-3 against each other.

As a professional, Haney is still undefeated and Ryan has only one loss in his career and both fighters are entering their physical prime years at this point.

Ryan Garcia is looking for an upset victory in what would be a career-defining win that would propel him to the pound-for-pound list and change his trajectory as one of boxing’s best.
