If’s not official yet, but Matchroom, DAZN and Golden Boy have pretty much agreed that Ryan Garcia will next fight Devin Haney in an epic title fight. The match may take place on April 21, 2021, with venue and undercard to be announced later. The decision may have been made prior to the Garcia vs. Campbell fight, contingent on Garcia’s winning the fight, of course.
Garcia won the fight by a brutal 7th round KO after getting up off the canvas from a thumping knockdown from Campbell. This only increases the excitement for what may be the biggest fight of the year so far.
The fight will be for the WBC lightweight belt. Garcia & Haney are 2 of the most popular up and coming fighters. Today’s “Youtube Generation” eagerly watches their match results and various commentaries in the millions.
Haney last fought on Nov. 7, 2020, when he defeated Yuriorkis Gamboa by a unanimous decision.
