The fact that Ryan Garcia pulled off a stunning upset against boxing champion Devin Haney on Saturday becomes even more mind blowing after the post-fight press conference. The 25-year-old admitted he was drinking alcohol every night leading up to the boxing title bout.

“I don’t give a fuck what people say about me,” Garcia said. “I walked through the fire, and still held it down and still beat fucking Devin Haney, and still drank every day and still beat him. I did everything.”

Ryan Garcia: “I can do whatever I want”

Ryan Garcia claimed he’s not proud of his behaviour pre-fight but still thinks he can do what he wants.

“What happened? False reality, right? I drank every single night. Went out on the first Monday and Tuesday (of fight week), and drank, drank, drank. What happened? I won. I’m not necessarily proud of it, but I’m just saying. It was a statement to say you guys can’t really fuck with me. I can do whatever I want.”

The 25-year-old knocked down Haney in rounds 7, 10 and 11 before coming away with the victory by majority decision with 114-110, 115-109 and 112-112 on the scorecards. However, he did not get Haney’s WBC super lightweight title since he missed weight with 3.2 lbs.
