Looks like we know better what Floyd Mayweather and Ryan Garcia were talking about during their dalliance last month.

Give the people what they want in this age, some variation of that, has to be what the 47 year old “Money Man” counseled young Ryan, age 25.

Ryan has done that, arguably, this week, as he’s promoted his 4/20 fight event in Brooklyn, NYC.

Ryan missed curfew night before NYC presser and his raw vocal prompted Devin to counsel, “Stop the coke, N, it’s effin up your voice!” Ryan said no, it’s just booze and weed for him

Ryan acted like “one of the people,” someone regular Joes and Janes can identify with, when he went on X Spaces and declared himself to be head-deep in a THC high. And maybe more?

The Tuesday presser was indeed memorable, for how Team Haney went at Ryan, who did a good job when Floyd explained the “heel” persona’s ability to magnify and conjure buzz. And bucks.

OK, so it all just play?

Ryan said as much after his antics at the Thursday presser had some folks saying he looked to be running off the rails. Rails, pun intended.

If I had to guess, I’d say this is play, giving TMZ people what we want, nourishment deficiencies aside.

The recent elevated mania of religious proclamations and such could be a signal of a man trying to clamp down and maintain equilibrium… or part of a push the likes of Floyd Mayweather could admire.
