Boxer Ryan Garcia Expelled From World Boxing Council Over Remarks

One of the biggest downfalls in boxing is Ryan Garcia’s, who keeps contributing to his epic fall from grace.

In the days leading up to his fight with Devin Haney, Garcia started acting abnormally, going so far as to skip weight and spread conspiracy theories on social media.

Despite Garcia’s problems, he still put on a clinic and won the decision. Garcia was jubilant following his victory, but that wouldn’t last. He would later test positive for ostarine, a performance-enhancing drug. 

The identical findings were uncovered even when his B-sample was examined.

In addition to a $10,000 fine from the boxing commission, Garcia was ordered to pay Golden Boy Promotions a $1 million fine. He was also suspended from competing for one year. The about with Haney was considered a “no contest,” stripping Garcia of the win.

Worst of all, Garcia is now officially no longer a member of the World Boxing Council (WBC). Apparently, Garcia hurled racist insults at Black and Muslim people during a social media webcast. His actions have now resulted in his expulsion from the group.

WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman, on his X page, announced Garcia’s expulsion, adding that the boxer has repeatedly turned down offers of assistance with his mental health and drug misuse.

He has no hope of ever boxing for the WBC again, and no one knows what the other boxing organizations will do when his ban ends, but it’s safe to assume nobody will want to work with him.

Becoming a pariah at this young age with the kind of future Garcia had is one of sports’ most tragic stories.

He is still widely regarded as one of the top boxers in the world and has an impressive record of 24-1.

Watchers of the sport are hoping he can get his career back on track, somehow.
