Devin Haney: Jake Paul closer to me than Ryan Garcia

Devin Haney is a boxing icon and the reigning WBC lightweight champion. It seems like he isn’t holding back when it comes to his upcoming bout with long-time rival Ryan Garcia. Scheduled for April 20, this highly anticipated match has garnered significant attention within the boxing community.

As Haney gears up to defend his WBC lightweight title, his confidence is palpable. Having secured the championship in 2023 with an impressive victory over Regis Prograis, Haney is eager to solidify his standing in the boxing world.

Meanwhile, Garcia is fresh off a win against Oscar Duarte in December 2023. He is determined to emerge victorious this time around. However, concerns have arisen due to Garcia’s recent erratic behavior.

Garcia claimed on X that he was forced to see minors being sexually assaulted after being kidnapped by ped**hiles. In addition, it seems like he has been using dr**s.

In a recent interview, Haney made comparisons between Garcia and renowned YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul. Mocking Garcia, Haney remarked: “We’ll see if he’s tick tocking or if he’s training. Jake Paul actually trains. I know Jake Paul well and he trains and he’s focused. Jake Paul closer to me than Ryan.”

With an undefeated record of 31-0, Haney enters the upcoming bout as a significant favorite. His pound-for-pound ranking further solidifies his status as a formidable opponent.

Garcia’s star power makes this match likely to be the biggest of Haney’s career. However, Haney has competed against tougher opponents like George Kambosos Jr. and Vasiliy Lomachenko.

Despite his immense popularity on social media platforms, Garcia has yet to claim an undisputed belt. Headlining a pay-per-view event for the second time, Garcia aims to seize the spotlight once again. He previously lost to Gervonta Davis as the main event of a card that allegedly attracted 1.2 million buys.

In less than two weeks, Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia will be competing in a battle for boxing supremacy. As the tension mounts, all eyes will be on these two formidable boxers as they step into the ring to settle their long-standing rivalry.
