Haney Boxing Analysis

Devin Haney (31-0, 15 KOs) has established himself as one of boxing’s elite fighters, boasting an unblemished record and a reign as the undisputed lightweight champion before moving up to the super lightweight division.

In his most recent outing, Haney dominated former champion Regis Prograis over 12 rounds to capture the WBC super lightweight title in December 2023.

Prior to his move to 140 pounds, Haney made successful defenses of his undisputed lightweight crown against George Kambosos Jr. (twice) and Vasiliy Lomachenko. His victory over Lomachenko, a highly skilled and experienced former champion, solidified Haney’s status as one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world.

Haney’s greatest assets are his exceptional technical skills, ring IQ, and defensive prowess. He possesses a sharp jab, excellent footwork, and the ability to control the pace of a fight with his precise punching and movement.

Haney’s defensive capabilities are also noteworthy, as he consistently demonstrates the ability to avoid or block his opponents’ shots while counterpunching effectively. However, some argue that Haney’s style can be overly cautious at times.

Additionally, while he has shown improvement in his power punching, Haney’s knockout percentage (48%) is lower than that of many of his competitors.

Ryan Garcia Boxing Analysis

Ryan Garcia (24-1, 20 KOs) has quickly become one of the most popular and exciting young fighters in boxing, thanks to his flashy style, quick hands, and devastating left hook. In his most recent bout, Garcia bounced back from his first professional defeat by stopping veteran Oscar Duarte in the eighth round in December 2023.

Garcia’s lone loss came in April 2023 when Gervonta “Tank” Davis stopped him in the seventh round of their highly anticipated showdown. Despite the setback, Garcia’s performance earned him respect from fans and boxing media, as he displayed heart and skill against one of the sport’s most feared punchers.

Garcia’s greatest strength is his lightning-quick hand speed and explosive power, particularly in his left hook. His ability to close the distance rapidly and deliver devastating combinations has resulted in a remarkable 83% knockout rate.

Garcia’s charisma and marketability are also significant assets, as he has amassed a massive social media following and has proven to be a draw for younger audiences

On the other hand, Garcia’s defensive skills are questionable, especially following the loss to Davis. He can be vulnerable to counters when he becomes overly aggressive, and his chin has yet to be fully tested against elite-level opposition. Additionally, some have criticized Garcia’s focus and dedication to the sport, citing his outside interests and perceived lack of discipline.

Devin Haney vs Ryan Garcia Prediction

For our Haney vs Garcia prediction, will believe Haney will defeat Garcia by decision after 12 rounds to retain his WBC junior welterweight title. The fight is likely to go the distance, with the over 10.5 rounds prop bet being a strong play at -200 odds.

Haney’s superior technical skills, discipline, and composure under pressure will be the key factors in his victory. Despite Garcia’s explosive power and unpredictable style, Haney’s ability to stay cool and execute his game plan will prove to be the difference-maker.

While there is always a risk that Garcia could land a fight-changing left hook, even in the later rounds, this possibility is not enough to justify picking him to pull off the upset. Haney’s fundamental brilliance and tactical approach should allow him to neutralize Garcia’s offense and secure a clear decision victory.

Haney vs Garcia Picks:

  • Haney by Decision or Technical Decision (-125)
  • Over 10.5 Total Rounds (-200)
