Divisional Kingpin Rejects the Idea of Fighting Ryan Garcia: “I Don’t Care About Instagram Followers”

– Devin Haney became the youngest undisputed champ in the four-belt era this weekend after stunning the Australian fans and their hero George Kambosos Jr. in a spectacular fashion at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.

‘The Dreamer’ is ready to take on new challenges. In an exclusive interview with ‘MMA Hour’, the 23-year-old mentioned the probable name of his opponent, but he did not count the name of star lightweight contender Ryan Garcia.

He said, “I am popular, but I think that I’m chasing legacy. I mean, I don’t care about Instagram followers or nothing like that. I want to make the best fight happen for my legacy more than anything.”

Furthermore, he added, “Instagram followers I mean, that’s cool and all, but I’m not into fighting for followers, you know. I’m in for the fight for a ultimate legacy for my name to live on for forever.”

However, Haney and Garcia once had a heated exchange. At the time, the pair was eager to square off in the ring, but they could not materialize this. As of now, Haney is in no mood to go back and forth with Garcia.

Haney is now the biggest star in the lightweight division. The champ is a unified champion with WBA, IBF, WBO, and The Ring lightweight titles. After delivering a phenomenal performance, the biggest question for Haney is to find a good fight next.  

Though Haney has expressed that he is excited to face anyone, the most probable names he wants to face are Gervonta Davis and Vasily Lomachenko. He told MMA Hour, “Gervonta Davis, Lomachenko, those two pretty much are our top on this.”

Depp and Heard have been in the spotlight since the defamation trial began in Virgina over a 2018 piece she had written in which she claimed she was a domestic abuse victim.

Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis is a five-time world champion in three weight classes. He has held the WBA (Regular) lightweight title since 2019. The southpaw gun is the biggest pay-per-star in the USA and recently outclassed the heated rival Rolando Romero in a highly anticipated matchup.
