Kambosos Jr. Predicts Haney Knockout Over Ryan Garcia

Former unified lightweight champion George Kambosos Jr. predicts a knockout victory for Devin Haney over Ryan Garcia on April 20th.

Kambosos Jr., who has lost twice to Haney in one-sided decision defeats, believes that Ryan’s “antics” during the promotion of his fight against IBF light welterweight champion Devin (31-0, 15 KOs) is a sign that he’s not going to be ready for what he brings on April 20th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Ryan’s “Antics” a Sign of Trouble

“You don’t go into a fight against a guy like Devin Haney, who prepares 110% and is super focused and has a great team around him. You don’t go into a fight against him with those kinds of antics,” said George Kambosos Jr. to Fighthype about Ryan Garcia’s behavior during the build-up for his fight against Devin Haney on April 20th.

Ryan seems pretty normal in what he’s saying and is on message, talking about wanting to hand Haney his first defeat in their headliner on DAZN PPV.

When you’ve got a person talking about different things that the average fan isn’t knowledgeable about, it will go over their heads, and they will think you’re weird. Ryan looks faster and far more powerful in his recent workouts than Haney. There’s no comparison between the two. It could be all over if Ryan lands his left hook on Haney.

Haney Will Stop Garcia

“You don’t go in with your mind that crazy,” said Kambosos. “Devin will win that fight. I believe he will stop him. I think Ryan is a good kid. He’s confused at times. He’s telling everybody he made $100 million. As much as I like Ryan, my support is to Devin Haney, and he will get the job done in that fight.”

If Haney puts his chin on the line to shoot for a knockout, he could get caught by Ryan and wind up on the floor. Ryan has the kind of power to hurt anyone in the 140-lb division, and he’s arguably the biggest puncher in the weight class.

That’s saying a lot, too, because you’ve got Subriel Matias, Isaac Cruz, and Teofimo Lopez in this division.

“Devin can punch. He’s sharp. I think his punching power has progressed into the 140 division,” said Kambosos Jr. “We saw him put down Regis with a beautiful shot. I think that punching power is going to continue to get better. He’s 25. That power continues to get better as you get older. So, I think he can catch Ryan. Ryan has got his own power as well as incredible speed.

“Devin makes you fight at his pace the way he wants you to fight him,” said Kambosos Jr. “He picks you from the jab and picks you from the movement. It’s hard to hit him.
