Ryan Garcia Threatens Promoter Eddie Hearn: “I’m Going to Punch Him in the Face”

Ryan Garcia says he doesn’t like promoter Eddie Hearn and will punch him in the face if he sees him.

The Matchroom Boxing boss, Hearn, who promoted WBC light welterweight champion Devin Haney, revealed to the media that he feels that Ryan (25-1, 20 KOs) should be given a permanent ban from the sport if they find that he intentionally used PEDs for his fight last April against his fighter.

Besides the permanent ban for Ryan, Hearn wants Haney’s 12-round decision loss to be turned into a victory, and Kingry disqualified. Haney’s attorney sent a letter to the New York Commission to have his fight with Ryan turned into a win, and a loss given to Garcia.

The Threat of Physical Violence

“Nah, he’s against me. I don’t like him. I don’t like him at all. If I see him, I’m going to punch him in the face,” said Ryan Garcia to Charlie Parson’s YouTube channel, talking about promoter Eddie Hearn. “This week, I’m going to punch him in the face.

“How can you get a victory after you lost? That makes no sense,” said Ryan Garcia when told that Devin Haney is trying to get a disqualification victory over him for their fight last month on April 20th.

“You can’t make this up. I don’t know. I’m done,” said Ryan when asked about his thoughts on Haney trying to get him disqualified.

If Ryan is serious about wanting to punch Hearn, the British promoter will have to be on the lookout for him in case he attempts to carry out his threat. With Ryan’s powerful left hook, he’d be dangerous for the lanky 40-ish British promoter if he connected with full force.

It’s unclear if Hearn had any hopes of one day promoting Ryan if he ever decides to leave Golden Boy Promotions. Ryan has already said that he will never sign with Hearn, which is a bad thing for Eddie. Haney’s career looks like it’s about to hit rock bottom, and he doesn’t have any other stars at 140 that can take over for him.
