(April 17th, Watch the Devin Haney / Ryan Garcia fight week media workout from legendary Gleason's Gym in Brooklyn, New York.

 

Devin "the Dream Haney - WBC Super Lightweight World:

"I mean none of Ryan's antics has really gotten under my skin. I'm a true professional. When I get into that ring, I am going to do my job. No matter how I feel, no matter what Ryan shows up, or whatever he says. He can say whatever he wants to say. I am going to let my hands talk in the ring on Saturday night."

 

"Ryan may have the speed, but I have the timing. I just want to show how I am levels above this guy. Ryan is an average fighter with a big name. I am a proven fighter, proven champion, I was tested by some of the best fighters in the world, and I am here for a reason. It's me vs. Greatness."

 

Ryan "Kingry" Garcia Super Lightweight Contender:

"It's right in front of your face! How am I going to miss weight?! I am just a motherf***er on a mission. I am still here, I am strong, and I am ready to destroy him. If Devin doesn't land face first, then I did something wrong."

 

"You can't deny all the work that Derrick and I have put in either. My technique is better, my hands are up, the chin is down - what do you all have to say? The social media is all just noise! I post something and then people think I'm crazy. I know what I am doing, and I'm in the middle of a promotional fight."

 

"This is the most important fight of my career, and I will not leave without the victory."

"The interpretations of other people - that's on them. I know I am training hard. I am feeling great, looking good in the gym, people just need to look at the facts. I don't regret anything I said or did in the lead up to this fight. I'm just ready to kick a** on April 20. I know I can say a lot, but I know I need to show it."

 

"You won't hear from any trainer out there that I don't train hard. To me, it's very disrespectful to dismiss all the hard work I have done since I was a young boy coming up. I have been training since I was seven-years-old. It's a slap in the face to all the work me and my family did."

 

"It's going to be light work for me. I am going to cook Devin Haney. Just another day in the office. Devin is not on my level and he will never be on my level."

Los Angeles Launch Press Conference!

(February 29th) It's take two of the Devin Haney vs Ryan Garcia press conference tour, this time in Los Angeles. The WBC World Super Lightweight Title is on the line April 20 when the former amateur rivals collide live on DAZN. Watch both fighters go head to head.

 

DEVIN "THE DREAM" HANEY, WBC SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION:

"I have respect for Ryan. We shared the ring six times as kids, we came up together. However, over the last few days, I have lost a lot of respect for him because 1- we have a fight, look at how much media are here to watch us. I am a true professional in everything that I do."

 

"I am happy to be here. I worked hard to be here. I sacrificed a lot to be here, and at the end of the day, the world will see it on April 20."

 

"KING" RYAN GARCIA, SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD TITLE CONTENDER:

"I want to paint the picture for all of you. My family had lost everything. We were sleeping in cars. Five kids, one bedroom, with a dream, and with God we just let him lead our lives. And through that whole process, I had to grind it out. Everything that I have today, I earned it. Nobody gave me a handout, I never had money. I'm really a small town boy and I am just growing into a man."

 

ARNOLD BARBOZA JR., SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD TITLE CONTENDER:

"I want to thank Golden Boy and DAZN for the opportunity to be the co-main event of this great event and the opportunity to showcase my talent. I don't know what's going on between these two on the stage, and their little shows, but one thing is for sure is that I am working hard in the gym and I am ready to step in for either of them."

 

OSCAR DE LA HOYA, CHAIRMAN AND CEO OF GOLDEN BOY:

"Welcome to the fight of the year! For years, from their days as decorated amateur champions, through their rise up the ladder of the professional ranks, Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia have been circling one another. They fought six times in the amateurs with both of them winning three apiece. Now they meet with championship gold and the chance at being the face of American boxing on the line. In other words, this one counts!"

Devin Haney vs Ryan Garcia:

New York Launch Press Conference!

(February 27th) It's the first press conference between Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia as the pair renew their amateur rivalry on April 20th, this time for the WBC World Super Lightweight Title. Watch as both fighters come head-to-head!

 

DEVIN “THE DREAM” HANEY: WBC SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION: “DAZN, they put the bounty up. On April 20th I’m capturing the bounty and we coming home with the victory inshallah.”

 

“KING” RYAN GARCIA, SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD TITLE CONTENDER: “When I first came into the game, I just wanted to make a bunch of money and then I did that. But now I want to go for the legacy, I wanna go for the belts and Devin’s in the way. I’m on my vengeance arc. I’m ready to get back in blood in everything so I’m coming straight for his neck. I promise you, I’m coming straight for you, it’s going to be ugly.”

 

OSCAR DE LA HOYA, CHAIRMAN AND CEO OF GOLDEN BOY: “This is the weight class to watch, this is the fight to watch, the best fighting the best. When I started Golden Boy, that was my vision to have the best fight the best and we’re here now today. I’m super excited because when you build a star you must fight in New York.” If you guys didn’t know they fought 6 times already in the amateur and they’re three and three, so this one does count. This fight here is like they say – for all the marbles – this fight here is to see who the best fighter at 140-pound division.”

 

BERNARD HOPKINS, PARTNER OF GOLDEN BOY: “So now that we are here a lot of us gotta be mindful when we ask for something because what you ask for, you might not want when you get it. These two young fighters, these two young men, not kids, gotta understand that to be great you must do great things and fight the best in the division… and that’s what Golden Boy’s set out to do.”

 

BILL HANEY, MANAGER, DEVIN HANEY PROMOTIONS: “An assignment that Devin sent me to do was to approach the only human being that’s a Hall of Fame fighter and a Hall of Fame promoter and thats Oscar de la Hoya. I put the honest on him, I said listen when you were when you were Hall of Fame fighter you fought everybody so as a Hall of Fame promoter I put the honest on you that you are now going to make the fight between two guys in their prime just like you did.”

A dangerous rivalry that has been brewing since their days in the amateur boxing scene has finally hit a fever pitch as undefeated, former undisputed lightweight champion and current WBC Super Lightweight Champion Devin “The Dream” Haney (31-0, 15 KOs) will defend his title against international PPV star “King” Ryan Garcia (24-1, 20 KOs). The 12-round fight is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Haney Promotions, KingRy Promotions, and Matchroom Boxing. The mega-event will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday, April 20, exclusively live on DAZN PPV.

 

“Facing Ryan Garcia on April 20, 2024, is another step in my pursuit of greatness and cementing my legacy as one of the sport’s greatest champions,” said Devin Haney. “I don’t need to say much. My track record speaks to my ability in the ring to overcome any challenge thrown my way, and rise to the top. I'm committed to giving the fans what they want – the best fights in boxing. I've proven time and again that I am a formidable opponent, and it's my skillset and the belief I have in my team that will ultimately lead me to victory. I’m happy Ryan’s team shares the same excitement in bringing the fans great boxing and we’re ready to bring you the best boxing event of the year in New York at Barclays Center.”

 

“I’m coming as if I was a roaring lion, coming back for blood,” said super lightweight world title contender Ryan Garcia. “I’m excited to bring another mega fight to boxing, that’s all I intend to do. I will place everything in the Lord’s hand. I pray that Devin comes out healthy and safe, and that everyone is entertained.”

 

“The Golden Boy mantra is the best fighting the best, and it’s hard to remember a better example of that than when Ryan Garcia and Devon Haney square off on April 20,” said Chairman and CEO Oscar De La Hoya. “Championship gold, bragging rights over a long, intense rivalry and the status as the face of American boxing will all be on the line with no catchweight, rehydration clauses or other nonsense. This is a can’t miss fight that fans can’t afford to miss.”

 

“We are incredibly excited to be broadcasting this mega fight live on DAZN PPV,” said Jared Kass, SVP North America DAZN. “Devin and Ryan are two next superstars of US boxing but only one can be crowned come final bell on April 20. This stacked night of boxing joins an already packed spring schedule which sees Anthony Joshua vs Francis Ngannou fight March 8, the Undisputed Heavyweight Title between Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk May 18 and countless domestic matchups all live and only on DAZN.”

 

Devin Haney, widely known as "The Dream," is an undefeated and accomplished professional boxer with a perfect record of 31 wins and 0 losses who has taken the boxing world by storm. With his lightning-fast hands, exceptional boxing skills, and unyielding determination, Haney has emerged as one of the sport's most exciting and promising talents today. The two-division champion left no doubt when he was elected Sports Illustrated 2023 ‘Fighter of the Year.’ In a remarkable feat, he has attained the title of the youngest undisputed world champion and the first undisputed lightweight world champion in the modern four-belt era by dethroning then-champion George Kambosos. Haney's subsequent defense of his undisputed world title, including a successful rematch against Kambosos and a notable victory over 3-division champion Vasiliy Lomachenko, further solidifies his place among boxing's elite. He was last seen in December 2023 when he dethroned Regis Prograis via unanimous decision win to become the new WBC Super Lightweight Champion.

 

“King” Ryan Garcia has become one of the biggest names in boxing, and at only 25-years-old has broken into the mainstream. Garcia has proven that he is a supreme, pay-per-view attraction, having generated one of the top 5 best boxing gates in Nevada boxing history. One of the most dynamic and exciting boxers fighting today, his fast-paced style, killer left hook, and long roster of knockouts have impressed boxing fans for years, including his most recent dispatch of knockout artist and power puncher Oscar “La Migraña” Duarte last December 2023.

 

Haney vs. Garcia is a 12-round fight for the WBC Super Lightweight World Championship that is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Haney Promotions, KingRy Promotions, and Matchroom Boxing. The event will take place on Saturday, April 20 on DAZN PPV live from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
