Devin Haney Aims for Pound-for-Pound Supremacy

Devin Haney, the reigning WBC junior welterweight world champion, has set his sights on claiming the top spot in the pound-for-pound rankings. Scheduled to face off against Ryan Garcia this Saturday, April 20, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, Haney is determined to solidify his legacy in the sport.

With an impressive record of 31 wins, including 15 knockouts, Haney is laser-focused on establishing himself as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. While his opponent, Garcia, boasts a record of 24 wins and 1 loss, with 20 knockouts, Haney remains undeterred by Garcia's amateur pedigree, which includes a history of closely contested matches between the two during their teenage years.

Haney's confidence is bolstered by his recent dominant performance in the ring, where he secured a decisive unanimous decision victory over Regis Prograis to capture the WBC junior welterweight title.

"I want the world to see how great I am," Haney declared. "To see that I am levels above a guy like Ryan Garcia and that I am the best fighter in the world."

While Garcia has garnered attention for his active presence on social media, with some questioning the seriousness of his approach, Haney remains unfazed, asserting his superiority in the ring.

Despite Garcia's previous bout against Gervonta Davis resulting in a stoppage loss, he remains a polarizing figure generating significant buzz both positively and negatively. For Haney, this fight represents an opportunity to elevate his profile and further establish his brand in the sport.
