Ryan Garcia vs Devin Haney Fight Purse Was Big

In the highly sought after bout between Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia, fans witnessed a compelling display of skill and determination. The clash took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, with the WBC super lightweight championship on the line. 


Despite Garcia's spirited start, including a powerful left hook that had Haney momentarily troubled in the initial rounds, Haney showcased his championship resolve by weathering the storm and imposing his pressure on Garcia. 

However, in the fight, despite Haney's impressive undefeated record and knockout statistics, it was reported that Ryan Garcia was set to earn a higher share due to his significant presence on social media. 

 


As earlier reported by Pinkvilla, Ryan Garcia, with a record of 24 wins and 1 loss, including 20 knockouts, was anticipated to earn a substantial sum from the fight. Garcia's promoter Oscar de la Hoya disclosed a potential earning of around $30 million for Garcia in this fight, an amount that could double if Garcia emerges victorious against Haney. 

Additionally, it was revealed by Devin Haney's father and trainer, Bill Haney, that the purse split for the fight favored Ryan Garcia at 55% to 45% in Garcia's favor. Despite being the current WBC super-lightweight world champion, Devin Haney reportedly agreed to the smaller split to ensure the fight could take place. 


Moreover, as per veteran boxer Dan Rafael, under this new agreement, Garcia would pay Haney $600,000 from his purse and an additional 2% of the pay-per-view profits if the event achieved a specific number of buys as part of their financial arrangement.
