Devin Haney and dad Bill have moved on from the loss to Ryan Garcia and are now calling for a rematch.

Devin wants to run it back

In a statement on social media, Haney gave an update on his health following his majority decision loss to Garcia. The reigning WBC super lightweight champ remains optimistic and would want to run it back with “King Ry.”

“Alhamdulillah Allah is the perfect planner he makes no mistakes.. fought like a true champion. Got up off the canvas & kept fighting. I am 100% ok & would love to do it again while we both make weight,” Haney tweeted.

Dad eyes rematch too

Like Devin, his dad Bill is also keeping a positive outlook after his son suffered the first defeat of his career. Bill reflected on the loss and tried to keep his son’s confidence up.

Bill also called for a rematch and wants Garcia to make weight properly.

“We outside when we winning, and we outside in defeat,” Bill said. “We turn losses into lessons and turn ‘em into blessings. One thing I can say is I did always say that I believed Ryan Garcia was a good fighter. We was 3-3 with him. I think he’s an even better TikToker or influence, or whatever because he fooled you guys into thinking he was crazy. I knew that he wasn’t crazy, so it was a good fight but, you know, we got to take it in stride.”

“Definitely want a rematch. Devin is still the WBC champion, he couldn’t lose the belt because Ryan was overweight, he didn’t make the scale. But we wanted to make the fight happen and more importantly, being the best fighter, or being the second best fighter or the third best fighter, you can work to get there, you can step back to step back up,” he continued.

“But the one thing is that my son is the best son in the world to me, and I love him to death. I’ll continue to go to bat for him, I will continue to stay outside. I mean, we didn’t just start this journey when we started boxing, so I’m going to back him fully. I ain’t going nowhere, period,” he added.

“So whenever we get back in the gym, that’s what we gonna do. But we gonna definitely hold our head up high, chest out, chin up, and that’s what it means by being a Haney,” he pointed out.

The loss to Garcia saw Haney’s flawless record coming to an end but he got to retain his WBC title after “King Ry” missed weight. He now has a 31-1 pro boxing record.

  1. I didn’t think they were that good, both of them. The way Garcia acted is being blown out of proportion. I think he was kind of scared. After, i thought he overreacted. I believe if he fought Lopez he’d get knocked out. JMO
