Ryan Garcia Claims Upset Win in Dominant Showing Over Haney

In his latest tour of duty, controversial junior welterweight fighter “King Ry” Ryan Garcia (25-1, 20 KO’s) pulled off a tremendous upset victory. He accomplished this feat by dropping WBC 140-pound champion Devin “The Dream” Haney (31-1, 15 KO’s) three times en route to a unanimous decision win. Although, due his failing to make weight, Garcia was ineligible to receive the title and therefore Haney will retain his belt.

King Ry began the night by catching Haney with two of his famed left hooks in the opening round, which the champion took well. Over the next several rounds, The Dream pressed more and more, seeking to control the pace and parameters of the fight while operating behind his notorious jab, feints and changing levels. In response, Garcia largely began slinking along the ropes, bending at the waist and turning his full back to Haney.

The fight would shift dramatically in the second half as King Ry dropped Haney a total of three times with one occasion coming in the seventh, tenth and eleventh rounds. Although somewhat ironic, credit should be given to Haney. In each instance that he was floored, he was badly hurt with the majority of the round to go on all three instances.

Nevertheless, The Dream kept fighting and found a way to survive to the bell. This made for some extremely dramatic moments and exchanges. Some points should also be deducted because each and every time Haney was carelessly hurt, it was by Garcia’s deadly left hook.

In the end though, the numerous knockdowns would cost Haney the victory but not his championship status. When all was said and done, King Ry prevailed to the tune of 112-112, 114-110 and 115-109.
