Via Dan Ambrose: Ryan Garcia criticized Devin Haney’s one-sided win last Saturday over George Kambosos Jr, calling the fight “boring” and referring to it as a sleep aid, “Nyquil” for fans grave watched it.
Haney’s 12-round unanimous decision with an unfortunately limited unified lightweight champion Kambosos (20-1, 10 Kos) proved rather dull. However, there is nothing more boring than watching Ryan Garcia’s final battle against Emmanuel Tagoe on April 9th.
Ryan showed less skill in that fight than Kambosos against an opponent he would have crushed if he fought on par with these two.
Kambosos tried as hard as he could, but he didn’t have enough depth when he went up against a technical fighter like Haney last Saturday night at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
It was clear from the first round that Kambosos had no chance, not even a puncher, due to his poor strength and skill.
Kambosos’ short T-Rex arm only added to his problems, putting him in a position where his only hope was for Haney to tire out in later rounds.
When that didn’t happen, Kambosos was slow, methodical in the championship innings, and the positive was that Haney wasn’t strong enough to stop him.
Congratulations Haney… but it’s definitely just a bland fight, Anyway I’ll just say, you know who I want after Fortuna!!! 🥊 Let them have a rematch lol. Purely the “nyquil” type of representation.

Ryan Garcia: “@Gervontaa, are you watching this?? When we fight, don’t leave it like this!!! Boring.”
Davis Tank: “Shut up!”
Ryan Garcia: “Oh yeah, you say shut up, but you scream that I’m next. You should want this fight, not travel. Your disrespect will be resolved!! Promise you that B****. ”
As you can see, Tank views Ryan as a nasty nasty guy and can’t wait to reveal he’s a Youtuber posing as a boxer.
Kambosos will try to fight more aggressively in the rematch, but that is unlikely to work against Haney.
When Aussie Kambosos tried to put more pressure on Devin in the tenth and eleventh rounds, he was repeatedly tagged by his powerful jabs and horribly twisted & missed.
The boxing world doesn’t want to see a rematch between Haney-Kambosos, and the promoters will get a big payoff if they get that albatross into a second fight.
If Team Kambosos is wise, they will move on, lick their wounds and take a different approach to claiming a world title. There are many titles on paper that Kambosos can capture, and then he can stand on his perch to call out who holds the light titles.
Haney will likely rise to 140 soon as he outgrows the 135 lb division.
