A handful of names in the lightweight division stand above others. Ryan GarciaShakur StevensonDevin Haney, and Gervonta Davis; this story involves all those names. In a recent twist of events, the San Francisco native subtly threw a jab at ‘King Ry’ and his renowned fight against Gervonta Davis. The development surfaced after a recent X (formerly Twitter) scuffle between Shakur Stevenson and Garcia on a similar topic.

Previously, Ryan Garcia boldly claimed that Gervonta Davis needed him to make big-money fights. The Victorville native even claimed that he could make bigger fights than Davis alone. While the validity of Ryan’s statement is left to an individual’s perception, Haney seems to think against it. While appearing in an interview with Fight Hub TV, Haney hit back at Garcia’s claim while contemplating a fight against ‘Tank’ Davis.
While speaking to the reporter from Fight Hub, Haney mocked Garcia’s current fight ticket sales while claiming a fight between him and Garcia would be huge. “Me and Ryan is a huge fight. We see how his tickets are going, though,” Haney said mockingly. He proceeded to highlight what Ryan had said about his fight with Davis. “He said that he’s the reason why Tank sold all those pay-per-views,” Haney remarked on Ryan’s claim. ‘The Dream’ Haney followed that by implying that Ryan’s upcoming fight isn’t selling well.
“He’s probably not even selling right now,” said Haney. Later, during the interview, Haney claimed it shows how big a fight with Gervonta Davis would be. “It just shows how big of a fight me and Tank Davis would be,” said Haney. However, turning to his upcoming fight, the undefeated boxer claimed he was solely focused on the Regis Prograis fight. “My main focus is Regis Prograis,” said Haney. What’s more, this isn’t the first time Garcia has gotten into a squabble regarding PPV sales involving the Davis fight.

Recently, ‘King Ry’ got involved in an X feud with Shakur Stevenson. Fiery verbal jabs were exchanged. In one of those tweets, Ryan Garcia found himself boasting about the fight sales numbers while putting down Shakur Stevenson after his fight against Edwin De Los Santos.

“We broke records and made life-changing money,” wrote Garcia. He further mentioned that the Shakur fight broke records for the least amount of punches thrown in a fight while insulting his ticket sales. “You broke a record of the least punches ever landed in a twelve-round fight and made not even 10% of what we made,” wrote Garcia.
