Ryan Garcia shocked the world by knocking down Devin Haney three times in a thrilling majority-decision upset. This unexpected outcome came after Garcia, considered a 6-1 underdog, sent Haney to the canvas in the seventh, 10th, and 11th rounds with a mix of speed and power.

The judges scored the fight 115-109, 114-110, and 112-112 in favor of Garcia, with The Guardian even giving it 113-111 to Garcia. Although the bout was originally a 12-round title fight, it turned into a non-title match after Garcia came in over the weight limit at the weigh-in.

Despite the pre-fight drama, including Garcia’s controversial behavior on social media, the match itself showcased the talents of two young boxing stars in their prime. The crowd erupted as Garcia came out swinging, staggering Haney with a powerful left hook early on. Haney fought back aggressively in the following rounds, but Garcia’s determination and skill led to a historic victory, ending Haney’s unbeaten streak.

Just as Haney seemed to be gaining the upper hand on the scorecards, Garcia unleashed a powerful left hook early in the seventh round that sent the champion to the canvas for the first time in his 32-fight professional career. Despite being docked a point by referee Harvey Dock for a break violation, giving Haney a brief respite, the champion struggled to recover fully, showing signs of being hurt well into the eighth round.

Haney displayed incredible resilience and recovery abilities but couldn’t evade Garcia’s heavy punches. With knockdowns in the 10th and 11th rounds, the bloodied champion found himself on the defensive against Garcia’s relentless attacks, culminating in a dramatic and unexpected turn of events in the final round. Boxing once again proved itself to be a stage for the unpredictable and thrilling.
