Devin Haney vs. Ryan Garcia pick and prediction

This is a fight that has been years in the making, but over recent months has taken a bit of a turn for the bizarre with Ryan Garcia exhibiting some pretty strange behavior in the buildup to the fight.

Nevertheless, the fight is going ahead this Saturday and Devin Haney, the reigning and defending champion, is a sizeable favorite at -800 on the moneyline.

Garcia, on the other hand, I think due to some of the things we’ve seen recently from him is +500 to win outright, by either knockout or decision. So a big underdog this weekend.

But where is the betting value?

For me, it can only be on Devin Haney.

Haney has gone from strength to strength in recent times, and looked fantastic last time out against Regis Prograis when he won the WBC super lightweight title.

I’m going to be backing Haney this weekend to win by stoppage – by KO/TKO/DQ at +137.

He’s not known as a puncher, and we’ve seen Garcia in the past be vulnerable in the Gervonta Davis fight and the Luke Campbell fight where he picked himself up off the canvas early on. It has to be said, looking at Garcia, he doesn’t look like the most well-prepared fighter against someone of Haney’s qualities.

Having said that, Garcia does carry serious power in that left hand. That left hook is a serious honey punch for Garcia. He’ll be looking to land it and get Haney out of there.

Haney is a very slick outside fighter, it’s going to be difficult for Garcia to win rounds against Haney. But he does have that equalizer, he does have that puncher’s chance. You can get +800 on Garcia to win by KO/TKO/DQ.

I can see a scenario whereby Devin Haney is just a bit wary early on of the power and the sharpness of Garcia before he starts to pick him apart and take over in the second half of the fight.

We’ve seen Garcia come out against Gervonta Davis all guns blazing and get dropped early on before getting stopped in the seventh round of that contest.
