Ryan Garcia suspended one year, Devin Haney fight declared no contest


Boxer Ryan Garcia has been suspended until April 2025 for testing positive for a banned substance and will forfeit his purse from his fight against Devin Haney as part of a settlement with the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC), the New York Department of State announced Thursday.

Garcia’s share of the purse is $1.1 million, said Pat English, an attorney representing Haney. The purse forfeiture amount will be paid back to the promoter, not to the NYSAC, according to the New York Department of State, which told USA TODAY Sports it could not confirm the dollar amount.

Garcia’s New York State professional boxer license will be suspended until April 20, 2025, exactly a year after his fight against Haney in Brooklyn, if he provides a clean urinalysis to the commission, according to a news release issued by the New York Department of State.
