In a thrilling prelude to their upcoming title bout, WBC Super Lightweight Champion Devin Haney and his fierce rival Ryan Garcia engaged in a heated face-off atop the iconic Empire State Building, setting the stage for a showdown of epic proportions. The highly anticipated 12-round battle is scheduled to take place this Saturday night (April 20, 2024) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The press gathering was meant to kick off fight week with a bang, but what ensued was nothing short of bedlam as emotions ran high between the two boxing sensations.

Garcia, known for his explosive style and determination, made his intentions clear during the recent press tour, stating, 

“When I first came into the game, I just wanted to make a bunch of money and then I did that. But now I want to go for the legacy, I wanna go for the belts and Devin’s in the way. I’m on my vengeance arc. I’m ready to get back in blood in everything so I’m coming straight for his neck. I promise you, I’m coming straight for you, it’s going to be ugly.”

Not one to back down from a challenge, Haney responded with a fiery tweet, asserting, 

“Not a conspiracy, Ryan is a hoe! Four days.”

The tension between the two fighters escalated quickly during their face-off at the Empire State Building, with both Haney and Garcia exchanging heated words and intense stares. The atmosphere crackled with anticipation as fans and media alike witnessed the raw intensity of their rivalry.

Garcia, at 25, is coming off a spectacular eighth-round knockout victory over Oscar Duarte in Houston, marking his return to the win column with a statement. Meanwhile, Haney, also 25, showcased his skill and resilience by maintaining his undefeated record in a hard-fought battle against Regis Prograis in San Francisco.

As fight night draws near, the boxing world eagerly awaits the clash between these two titans of the ring. The Empire State Building face-off was just a taste of the fireworks expected at the Barclays Center, where Haney and Garcia will leave it all in the ring in pursuit of glory and championship gold.
