Mayweather's Surprising Praise Sparks Jealousy Between Haney and Ryan Garcia!
Floyd Mayweather’s recent public support for rising star Ryan Garcia has stirred controversy, leading to tension with fellow boxer Devin Haney. The interaction between Garcia and Mayweather has left Haney visibly perturbed, hinting at a sense of unease over their burgeoning relationship. Speculation suggests Mayweather may be guiding the 25-year-old Garcia (24-1, 20 KOs) in his training endeavors, possibly in preparation for a bout against WBC light welterweight champion Haney (31-0, 15 KOs) or another opponent.
Mayweather’s endorsement of Garcia as one of the top three fighters in boxing, alongside Canelo Alvarez and Gervonta Davis, garnered attention. However, Haney’s exclusion from this list, coupled with reports of underwhelming Pay-Per-View numbers for his recent fight, seemingly fueled his discontent. Haney’s social media response to Garcia and Mayweather’s camaraderie hinted at feelings of resentment, prompting a sharp reply from Garcia indicating Haney’s jealousy of Mayweather’s attention.
Mayweather’s preference for showering praise on Garcia stems from the latter’s massive online presence, boasting a staggering 11 million Instagram followers and a substantial following across other social media platforms. Garcia’s popularity within the U.S. boxing scene surpasses even Gervonta Davis, often referred to as ‘The Face of Boxing.’ While Canelo Alvarez commands a larger global following, Garcia’s appeal to American audiences hasn’t gone unnoticed by Mayweather, prompting the veteran to invest considerable attention in Garcia’s career.
The spotlight on Garcia’s popularity and Mayweather’s mentorship leaves questions lingering about the young fighter’s future endeavors. His immense following and Mayweather’s involvement hint at potential high-profile opportunities on the horizon, capturing the curiosity of boxing enthusiasts.
