At last, the deal is sealed. Mike Coppinger of ESPN broke the news, tweeting, “Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia have struck a deal to fight April 20 in Las Vegas for Haney’s junior welterweight championship, sources tell ESPN. Haney lands another marquee fight – his biggest yet – as he continues his star climb while Garcia lands his first title shot.”

This announcement marks a pivotal moment in both fighters’ careers. Haney, the reigning WBC junior welterweight champion, will defend his title against Garcia, a contender hungry for his first major championship. They have been in the negotiation battle for months, which was halted by Ryan’s interest in fighting Rolly Romero instead. Romero ended up signing a fight with Issac Cruz, which left Ryan in the mud. This time, though, it’s done. Garcia himself posted the news of this on his Instagram.

This fight for me means everything.” Garcia’s words echo his determination and hint at the stakes, “This is what I meant when I spoke on PBD podcast ‘I’m coming back for everything in Blood.’”

He even calls for prayers for Devin’s health, suggesting the intense nature of the upcoming battle. Garcia concludes with a powerful note, “Praise the Lord Jesus Christ. His name is above all. Forever and for eternity Amen,” signifying his faith and resolve as the fight approaches.
