PhilBoxing.com





HANEY VS. GARCIA WILL BE EXCLUSIVELY LIVE WORLDWIDE ON DAZN ON SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 2024

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 29, 2024): Former undisputed lightweight champion and current WBC Super Lightweight Champion Devin “The Dream” Haney (31-0, 15 KOs) and international PPV star “King” Ryan Garcia (24-1, 20 KOs) hosted a press conference in Los Angeles to promote their 12-round super lightweight world championship clash. The fight is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Haney Promotions, KingRy Promotions, and Matchroom Boxing. The mega-event will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday, April 20, exclusively live on DAZN PPV.



DEVIN "THE DREAM" HANEY, WBC SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION:
"I have respect for Ryan. We shared the ring six times as kids, we came up together. However, over the last few days, I have lost a lot of respect for him because 1- we have a fight, look at how much media are here to watch us. I am a true professional in everything that I do."

"I am happy to be here. I worked hard to be here. I sacrificed a lot to be here, and at the end of the day, the world will see it on April 20."



"KING" RYAN GARCIA, SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD TITLE CONTENDER:
"I want to paint the picture for all of you. My family had lost everything. We were sleeping in cars. Five kids, one bedroom, with a dream, and with God we just let him lead our lives. And through that whole process, I had to grind it out. Everything that I have today, I earned it. Nobody gave me a handout, I never had money. I'm really a small town boy and I am just growing into a man."

ARNOLD BARBOZA JR., SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD TITLE CONTENDER:
"I want to thank Golden Boy and DAZN for the opportunity to be the co-main event of this great event and the opportunity to showcase my talent. I don't know what's going on between these two on the stage, and their little shows, but one thing is for sure is that I am working hard in the gym and I am ready to step in for either of them."

OSCAR DE LA HOYA, CHAIRMAN AND CEO OF GOLDEN BOY:
"Welcome to the fight of the year! For years, from their days as decorated amateur champions, through their rise up the ladder of the professional ranks, Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia have been circling one another. They fought six times in the amateurs with both of them winning three apiece. Now they meet with championship gold and the chance at being the face of American boxing on the line. In other words, this one counts!"
