Ryan Garcia And Devin Haney met on April 20th this year and the former managed to defeat “The Dream”. Garcia was on cloud nine after his victory against Haney. Given the lavish salary he received for the fight, he even bought himself a luxurious McLaren a few days ago. However, a recent development has cost the boxer a fortune and he has to pay enormous sums for it.

'KingRy' tested positive for the performance-enhancing drug Ostarine twice during fight week. The investigation has been ongoing since April and is now finally complete. Garcia vs. Haney was declared void by the NYSAC and Haney regained his undefeated status. Additionally, Haney and Garcia were supposed to weigh in at 140 pounds because it was advertised as a WBC super lightweight title fight. However, the Victorville native weighed in at over 143 pounds. As a result of all this, Garcia had to pay a sizable sum.

Boxing Matchmaker Rick Glaser shared a post on X detailing how much the fight with Devin Haney cost him after the New York State Athletic Commission found Garcia guilty of using performance-enhancing drugs. He had already paid Devin Haney $1.5 million for being way over the weight limit before the fight. Now he has to pay even more. According to Glaser, the boxer has to pay back $1.2 million to Golden Boy Promotions, which was Garcia's purse for the fight. Then he has to pay Haney $1.5 million, which he already did before the fight. He also has to pay an amount of $10,000 to the NYSAC. In total, that comes to a fine of approximately $2.7 million. But that's not all.

In addition, the 25-year-old fighter is not allowed to fight for a year as part of his suspension, which expires on April 20, 2025. Losing the chance to fight for another year also means missing out on the chance to make more money, which will now cost him millions more in lost salary.

This year, things aren't going so well for the boxer. First, he was devastated when he learned of his mother's cancer diagnosis. After being charged with “aggravated vandalism,” he had to pay $15,000 for the damage. And now the PED debacle. Despite this, Garcia continues to protest his innocence and refuses to acknowledge the legality of the order.

Ryan Garcia continues to deny using performance-enhancing drugs

The boxer has been posting a lot on social media since the news broke, expressing his disappointment with how things are turning out for him. In one of his posts following the verdict, he wrote: “I really hope boxing goes well without me. I've fought everyone and I was ready. They turned their back on me. I'm innocent and I stand by it. I don't care what anyone says. Gun to my head. I say I didn't take any performance-enhancing substances.”
