Ryan Garcia has made a bold statement: “I identify as a woman.”

Garcia is suing Haney. He says Haney touched him without consent.

Things got heated between boxing stars Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia before their fight this weekend. Haney and Garcia stood face to face at the Empire State Building in New York City and it didn’t take long for the bickering to turn into pushing.

This isn’t the first time Haney and Garcia have come to blows during their stare-down. This weekend, however, they will finally settle the score as Haney and Garcia meet in a fight for the WBC super lightweight belt. Watch their intense staredown in the video below.

Devin Haney vs Ryan Garcia

The title fight between Haney and Garcia will take place on Saturday night (US time). This is both fighters’ first fight in 2024, and unfortunately, it has been prompted by a lot of writing outside the ring.

Garcia has been making headlines for reasons unrelated to the big fight. In an interview with Andrew Tate, he admitted to being raped as a child and admitted to drinking and smoking marijuana.


– I don’t care. They raped me. I was two years old. I have proof of that. That’s where it all started. Of course, people accuse me of saying this because I take drugs. Give me a drug test then!

His family has expressed concern for the young star, posting several startling videos and messages referencing his death. According to reports, Garcia was hospitalized for mental health issues in early March but was released after only a day.

On social media, Garcia has continued to post videos and various statements that have led people to question his state of mind. In one of his latest messages, after his stare-down with Haney, Garcia was unequivocal in his accusation of hate crimes and identifying as a woman.

– “Devin touched me without my consent,” Ryan Garcia wrote. I am suing him for putting his hands on me, and I identify as a woman. So he touched me like a grown man and hit a grown woman. And I’m LGBTQ+, so now it’s a hate crime. This is so sick!
