Wild Ryan Garcia behaviour causes MASSIVE shift in odds for Devin Haney SUPERFIGHT

The build-up to Devin Haney vs Ryan Garcia on Saturday has been just one topic – the wild behaviour from ‘King Ryan’.

We won’t regurgitate all the tawdry details, but it’s fair to say this is not boxing’s finest hour as we count down to the huge PPV show at Barclays Center, Brooklyn on Saturday night (live on DAZN PPV).

When this fight was announced a few short weeks ago, Haney was a clear favourite but the exciting Garcia was at least given a puncher’s chance. His selling power also made this a must-see event.

A few weeks later and as fight night approaches, the thing that is worrying people most, is Garcia’s wellbeing. He has spent most of those weeks seemingly on social media producing more and more concerning content and behaviour.

Not surprisingly this is now impacting the odds for the fight in a MAJOR way.

Haney vs Garcia – latest odds

When the bout was first confirmed, Haney was a 2/9 favourite with Ryan a 9/2 underdog. But Garcia’s antics have caused that line to shift ENORMOUSLY in recent days and weeks.

Now, at the time of writing we are hours away from the weigh-in in NYC, and Haney is now a 1/8 favourite. His odds have moved almost 100% – astonishing stuff. To put this into context, we do see lines shift as fights get closer – but NEVER like this.

So what about Ryan’s odds of causing a major upset? Well not surprisingly they are getting bigger all the time. That 9/2 is now 13/2 – a change of around 50%.

The other markets on this bout are also moving significantly – when the bout was confirmed Haney was a 23/10 to win by TKO or KO. He is not by nature a knockout puncher with only 15 stoppages in his 31-0 record. But bettors like the chance for that to change on Saturday night.

Haney is now just 7/4 to win inside distance – pretty uncharted territory for the undefeated American.

When is Haney vs Garcia?

Ring walks for the big fight are expected to take place not before 11pm Eastern Standard Time on Saturday – that is 8pm PST on the West Coast, or 4am Sunday in the UK (and 5am in Central Europe).

How much is the PPV?

So the cost is $69.99 in the US and £19.99 in the UK – but it does come with a catch. All around what type of DAZN subscription you take out at the same time. There are various options and we’ve listed them in our main Haney vs Garcia preview right here.
