Ryan Garcia’s winning bet against Haney earns him $12 million

Ryan Garcia garnered attention not only for defeating Devin Haney but also for reportedly placing a high-stakes bet on himself before the match. Reports indicate that Garcia wagered a significant sum on his victory, leading to a reported $12 million payout upon winning. Some fans criticized his bet, while others praised his confidence. Garcia’s decision to bet on himself was seen as bold, with some fans labeling it a genius move. However, concerns were raised about the legality and potential for scandal if a boxer were to bet against themselves. The bet originated from Garcia’s failure to meet the weight limit for the fight, resulting in him owing Haney $1.5 million due to being over the agreed weight. Despite this, Garcia performed exceptionally well during the match, scoring three knockdowns and securing victory via majority decision.
