Devin targeting match

“That’s a great fight,” said Haney about a match between him and Ryan Garcia. “We’ve been talking about that fight for a while now, and hopefully we can make that fight happen sooner or later. That’s a fight that we would love to have. If the fight happens, I see myself victorious and winning in fashion,” said Haney about a future match against Garcia.

Ryan Garcia (18-0, 15 KOs) isn’t expected to face Haney anytime soon. If that fight does eventually take place, it won’t be for 3 to 4 years. Haney won’t sit around the lightweight division waiting on Garcia fight. If don’t want to make the fight in the near future, Haney will move up to 140, and they’ll lose out on their chance.

Haney is ready to fight Garcia right now, but Golden Boy isn’t going to make that fight for obvious reasons. The 21-year-old Ryan isn’t ready, even though he’s slightly older than Haney. He’s not as developed as a professional.
