Devin Haney VS Ryan Garcia Mega Fight , NY Press Conference-2024

A dangerous rivalry that has been brewing since their days in the amateur boxing scene has finally hit a fever pitch as undefeated, former undisputed lightweight champion and current WBC Super Lightweight Champion Devin “The Dream” Haney (31-0, 15 KOs) will defend his title against international PPV star “King” Ryan Garcia (24-1, 20 KOs).

The 12-round fight is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Haney Promotions, KingRy Promotions, and Matchroom Boxing. The mega-event will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday, April 20, exclusively live on DAZN PPV.

“Facing Ryan Garcia on April 20, 2024, is another step in my pursuit of greatness and cementing my legacy as one of the sport’s greatest champions,” said Devin Haney. “I don’t need to say much. My track record speaks to my ability in the ring to overcome any challenge thrown my way, and rise to the top.

I will place everything in the Lord’s hand. I pray that Devin comes out healthy and safe, and that everyone is entertained.”

“The Golden Boy mantra is the best fighting the best, and it’s hard to remember a better example of that than when Ryan Garcia and Devon Haney square off on April 20,” said Chairman and CEO Oscar De La Hoya.

“Championship gold, bragging rights over a long, intense rivalry and the status as the face of American boxing will all be on the line with no catchweight, rehydration clauses or other nonsense. This is a can’t miss fight that fans can’t afford to miss.”

“We are incredibly excited to be broadcasting this mega fight live on DAZN PPV,” said Jared Kass, SVP North America DAZN.

“Devin and Ryan are two next superstars of US boxing but only one can be crowned come final bell on April 20.

This stacked night of boxing joins an already packed spring schedule which sees Anthony Joshua vs Francis Ngannou fight March 8, the Undisputed Heavyweight Title between Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk May 18 and countless domestic matchups all live and only on DAZN.”

Devin Haney, widely known as “The Dream,” is an undefeated and accomplished professional boxer with a perfect record of 31 wins and 0 losses who has taken the boxing world by storm. With his lightning-fast hands, exceptional boxing skills, and unyielding determination, Haney has emerged as one of the sport’s most exciting and promising talents today.

The two-division champion left no doubt when he was elected Sports Illustrated 2023 ‘Fighter of the Year.’ In a remarkable feat, he has attained the title of the youngest undisputed world champion and the first undisputed lightweight world champion in the modern four-belt era by dethroning then-champion George Kambosos.

“King” Ryan Garcia has become one of the biggest names in boxing, and at only 25-years-old has broken into the mainstream. Garcia has proven that he is a supreme, pay-per-view attraction, having generated one of the top 5 best boxing gates in Nevada boxing history.

Haney vs. Garcia is a 12-round fight for the WBC Super Lightweight World Championship that is presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Haney Promotions, KingRy Promotions, and Matchroom Boxing. The event will take place on Saturday, April 20 on DAZN PPV live from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Exclusive interview with Nisa Rodriguez, Women’s Next Great Boxing Champion -2024

The 28-year-old middleweight has been boxing since she was 13. Her first ring was the streets of Mott Haven.”I was getting into a lot of trouble in the street. I was always into a lot of sports, but it was like, you can punch somebody in the face and get away with it,” Rodriguez said.

From feared fighter in the street to the only girl in the gym, Rodriguez found a positive way to channel her aggression.”Before, she was like a hurricane, just keep coming in and throwing wild punches,” said her trainer Richard Jenkins.

“All the guys were like, ‘What’s this chick doing? Let’s beat her up until she leaves.’ And I stood there and it built character,” Rodriguez said.Sixty-seven fights and just seven losses later, Rodriguez has eight national Golden Glove titles to her name. She is part of Puerto Rico’s Olympic Boxing team.

The Bronx-born athlete heads to training camp next week in hopes of making a name in the Central American games. It’s a qualifier for the 2020 Olympics.The competition is tough, but she says nothing is harder than boxing while raising her 9-year-old son on her own. Losing her father, she says, was also more bruising than any punch from an opponent. “My father was always my first love,” Rodriguez said with tears in her eyes. Thoughts of her father will be with Rodriguez when she represents the island her parents came from. Just like this fierce fighter, Puerto Rico is still trying to recover from a big loss, Hurricane Maria’s devastation. “It’s a little bit of pressure, but I feeI was meant to do this,” she said.

Rodriguez got her start at St. Mary’s Park before training at John’s Boxing Gym, which has since moved to Jerome Avenue. Aside from her Olympic aspirations, the boxer also wants to open free boxing gyms for at-risk youth in Puerto Rico and the Bronx.

“For them to see someone that is like them, that come from the ghetto, that you don’t really have much but you’re trying to do what you can to not become a product of your environment. You’re trying to live the dream,” she said.

Nisa Rodriguez is also an New York Police officer, and she is turning professional and making her debut on March 15th 2024, at Madison Square garden’s. She went on to say she would like to become World Champion as a Professional and she loves what Amanda Serrano, 7 Division World Women’s champion has accomplished as a fighter and is also a role model for Nise.

Nisa Rodriguez , is managed by Keith Sullivan an New York attorney based in New York.
