Devin Haney vs Ryan Garcia Prop Betting Selection

Prop: Devin Haney Wins By TKO (+220)

Wagering a bet on Devin Haney to win by finish could seem very risky and usually on the losing side of things in most circumstances but, I do not mind taking a stab at it in certain situations such as this one.

Haney made his 140 debut last December against then-champion Regis Prograis and in my opinion looked much better at his new weight class than 135 where he was struggling to make the weight. I noticed a healthier Devin Haney with more pop and strength behind his punches. He was able to hurt a very game and durable Prograis early on in the fight. 140 is definitely the weight class he needs to be stationed at to continue to fight at his very best.

Haney’s opponent, Ryan Garcia, is challenging for Haney’s WBC title on Saturday night in the main event. Both men met six times in the amateurs with each getting their hand raised three times. I personally do not care about that but it is part of the promotion and both men are vastly different fighters than they were a decade ago.

There are a lot of question marks surrounding Ryan Garcia that have nothing to do with his fighting skills. He does not look to be taking this fight seriously and coupled with his weird, outrageous outbursts on social media it just spells a recipe for disaster come Saturday night.

Haney is already one of the very best boxers in the world and never lets outside noise or his own self get in the way. He does everything better than Garcia and should have not much resistance in winning rounds and controlling the fight. I believe Haney is truly motivated to make a statement against Garcia and could do that by finishing him. Sharp and relentless body work should do the trick and by taking a play out of Gervonta Davis’ book from their bout last year could mean a finish is very possible for “The Dream”. Garcia is known to be a bit chinny and with the right placement of shots and counters I believe Haney at his newfound weight class could crack Garcia.

Either way I see it being a long night for the challenger as Devin Haney should make it look easy as he searches for bigger fights in 2024.

Thanks for reading and best of luck!
