Ryan Garcia, the American professional boxer, defeated his compatriot Devin Haney, the WBC World Super Lightweight Champion, in a non-title match, on the DAZN PPV card. As per the reports, Ryan Garcia is set to make around $30 million for this boxing match as per his promoter Oscar de la Hoya, which could get doubled since he managed to defeat Devin Haney.

According to the report from Pinkvilla, Devin Haney (31-0 with 15 knockouts) had a better record than Ryan Garcia (24-1 with 20 knockouts) going into the fight. But still, Garcia was supposed to earn more of the purse share in comparison with Haney, due to his greater presence in social media.

Michael Benson, the editor for talkSPORT, stated that the purse is split 55/45 in favor of Ryan Garcia, which was revealed by Bill Haney, the father of Devin Haney. His post on X read, “Devin Haney vs Ryan Garcia on April 20th is a 55/45 purse split in favor of Garcia, Devin's father/trainer Bill Haney has revealed. Devin agreed to take the smaller split despite being the WBC super-lightweight world champion in order to make the fight happen. [@WsbRemy]”.

Meanwhile, the boxing reporter Dan Rafael also posted about the agreement about the Ryan Garcia versus Devin Haney fight. He stated that Garcia will be paying Haney $600,000 out of his purse, plus two percent of his PPV profits, if the DAZN boxing card reaches a predetermined number of buys.

Ryan Garcia is already going to pay Devin Haney $1.5 million after he missed the 140-pound pre-fight weight limit by 3.2 pounds. They had put a bet wherein for every pound of weight exceeding the standard limit, a fighter would pay the other one $500k.
