Devin Haney has fired shots at a potential future opponent of his.
The current undisputed lightweight champion, who dethroned George Kambosos Jr., is currently preparing for a rematch against the Australian.
But the American star has hit out at former WBC Silver lightweight champion Ryan Garcia, accusing the pretty boy of clout-chasing.
In a recent interview, Haney, who has a record of 28-0 with 15 quick finishes, said:
“Ryan Garcia just uses other fighters’ names to sell his fights and then after his fight, he fights nobody.”
Garcia returned from a hiatus due o his mental health earlier this summer, stopping former super-featherweight champion Javier Fortuna inside six rounds.
But Haney believes he’s not going to do anything he promises, with Garcia having recently called out the WBA ‘regular’ lightweight champion Gervonta Davis.
‘The Dream’ continued:
“In reality, he calls out all these fighters, he called out Pacquiao, he called out me, he called out Tank. The list goes on and on, and on and on, and on, and he’s never fought any of them.
“The best person on his resume is Luke Campbell, and Luke Campbell beat nobody.”
Floyd Mayweather, who looks after the affairs of the aforementioned Davis, has said that Garcia can fight the Baltimore man as long as it takes place at 135 pounds.
The Fortuna win by Garcia took place a division north of the lightweight limit and ‘King Ry’ responded to Mayweather by stating that he would fight ‘Tank’ at “any weight” they want it.
But Haney isn’t convinced about the legitimacy of that claim.
“What are we even talking about? The fact that we are still talking about Ryan is unbelievable.”
