Haney Garcia Boxing | Sport

Ryan Garcia knocked down Devin Haney three times to hand the WBC super lightweight champion his first defeat. He won the fight by majority decision, but not the title because he was over the weight limit. Garcia’s strange behavior in public and on social media during the build-up led to questions about how serious he was about this fight. It seemed like he wasn’t spending enough time training when he was more than 3 pounds over the 140-pound limit on Friday. But the speed and power in his hands were too much for Haney, who was injured from the opening round and went down in the seventh, 10th and 11th.
