Ryan Garcia has reignited his career with a remarkable victory over Devin Haney to claim the WBC super lightweight title. Despite not leaving the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, with the title due to being overweight, Garcia's victory has left the boxing world in awe.

The fight was surrounded by concerns regarding Garcia's mental health, following his controversial use of social media and erratic behavior. Throughout the lead-up to the fight, Garcia appeared unfit and distracted, leading many to question his readiness to face Haney, one of the sport's top fighters.

On Friday, Garcia weighed in at 143.2 pounds, making him ineligible to win the title. However, once the bell rang, Garcia showcased his impressive hand speed and power, knocking Haney down three times and dominating the fight.

Despite facing criticism for his ineffective punches and defensive lapses, Garcia's determination and heart were on full display. After a series of exchanges, Garcia landed a decisive left hook in the 12th round, sealing his victory and silencing his doubters.

Garcia's win marks a significant comeback following his defeat against Gervonta "Tank" Davis in April 2023. With this victory, Garcia has not only claimed the WBC super lightweight title but has also reminded the boxing world of his undeniable talent and resilience.
