Ryan Garcia misses weight for Saturday fight, loses $1.5 million bet to Devin Haney

On Thursday, Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia agreed to a high-stakes bet for their super lightweight fight, with each owing $500,000 for every pound over the 140-pound contracted weight. At the weigh-in, Garcia was visibly over, weighing 143.2 pounds, while Haney made weight at 140 pounds. Haney confirmed Garcia’s breach of the agreement, indicating he’s $1.5 million richer as a result. Despite Garcia’s infraction, the fight will proceed, but he won’t be eligible to win Haney’s WBC World Super Lightweight championship due to his failure to make weight.
