Devin Haney (31-0, 15 KOs) and PPV star “King” Ryan Garcia (24-1, 20 KOs) hosted a media workout at the famed and fabled Gleason's Gym in DUMBO, Brooklyn to promote the 12-round super lightweight world championship clash at Barclays Center.

Per a release, Golden Boy partnered with Everlast and “donated boxing equipment to the gym's amateur fighters who also had the opportunity to meet fighters.”

Haney vs. Garcia is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Haney Promotions, KingRy Promotions, and Matchroom Boxing.

The event will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday, April 20, exclusively live on DAZN PPV.


“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.”


“It's right in front of your face! How am I going to miss weight?! I am just a motherfucker 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”
