Devin Haney Set to Defend Title Against Ryan Garcia: What to Expect

Haney vs. Garcia

This weekend promises an exhilarating showdown as former undisputed lightweight champion and current WBC super lightweight champion Devin Haney defends his title against Ryan Garcia.

Garcia, the 25-year-old who previously held the WBC interim lightweight belt in 2021, has moved up a weight class and aims to challenge Haney (31-0, 15 KOs) for his title, looking to secure his first official championship.

The two fighters share a storied past, having faced each other in the amateur circuit where they each claimed victory in three out of six bouts. Their upcoming clash in Brooklyn marks their first professional encounter.

Expert Predictions:

  • Claressa Shields, Undefeated Pro Boxer: Shields predicts a Haney win by unanimous decision. She notes, “Devin Haney has faced tougher opponents and has shown growth over the years. While Ryan Garcia is a formidable opponent with heart and speed, Haney’s experience gives him the edge.”
  • Eddie Hearn, Boxing Promoter: Hearn believes Haney will emerge victorious but anticipates a close fight. “Devin Haney is a pound-for-pound great and the future face of boxing. Ryan, with his reactive style and technical prowess, poses a threat, but Haney’s multifaceted skills make him a force to be reckoned with.”
