Garcia also vowed to "beat [Haney's] a**."

Ryan Garcia has sounded off about Devin Haney as their upcoming boxing match approaches. "To me, it is personal in a way," Garcia said, "I don't know, something's just in me. I don't even feel like answering these questions bro, I'm sorry," Garcia told TMZ this week. However, Garcia did answer a few more questions from the outlet, further sounding off about his April opponent. "I don't give a f-ck about his boxing skills. I'mma beat his a--, that's it! I'm not a boxing analyst. Forget that dude! He's gonna get it, 4/20, that's it!" Garcia added.

Even though there are nearly two months before their fight, tensions are high between the two men. Garcia and Haney had been separated at Super Bowl LVIII in February after getting into a brief altercation. Additionally, the pair traded words when they jointly appeared on First Take this week.

Ryan Garcia Calls Out KSI

Of course, Garcia is no stranger to beef. Garcia tried to land a knockout blow on KSI following their Twitter feud last October. "KSI is so salty on me for no reason He can’t go the distance with me like he claimed. He’s a 7 head monster. Stop speaking my name. @KSI," Garcia wrote on X following a back-and-forth between the two men. KSI had come after Garcia after it was announced that Garcia's year-ending fight against Oscar Duarte would not be a pay-per-view event. After Garcia said he did not want to "rob his fans", implying an easy win for himself, KSI suggested he had already robbed his fans following his loss to Gervonta Davis last year.

The two men traded barbs back and forth before Garcia finally told the YouTuber to step up or shut up. "If you want to fight me, let me know or stop speaking my name," Garcia wrote in a private message to KSI. The December 2 fight will also be Duarte's first since May. The Mexican-born fighter is 26-1-1 in his decade-long career.
