‘KingRy’ returned to the boxing ring over the weekend on DAZN pay-per-view. In his return, Garcia faced his longtime rival Devin Haney, whom he faced six times as an amateur. Despite the two splitting their amateur series at three wins each, it was ‘The Dream’ who entered the ring a gigantic betting favorite.

That was partially due to Ryan Garcia admittedly acting crazy pre-fight. That led to some wild betting odds, that ‘KingRy’ himself capitalized on. He put millions on himself to win, and that wound up being the correct decision. Garcia scored three knockdowns across 12 rounds and claimed a majority decision victory.

Earlier today, Ryan Garcia discussed his return to the boxing ring in an interview with Patrick Bet-David. There, ‘KingRy’ alleged that he would make between $30 million and $50 million for his victory over Devin Haney. That includes his purse, the money he won betting on himself, his cut of the gate, and also his cut of the pay-per-view.

In the interview, Ryan Garcia also admitted that the pay-per-view and ticket numbers are still being tallied. Depending on how things go, that will massively impact the overall figures that he will make from the bout. However, according to Oscar De La Hoya, Garcia’s return against Devin Haney did well on DAZN.

“I don’t know [if my antics helped the fight overall] but I think it brought more eyes to it.” Ryan Garcia stated in his recent appearance on the PBD Podcast. “[It brought] the casual fans. I don’t know about the pay-per-view or tickets but we’re going to find out real soon. I’m projected to make around thirty to fifty million from the fight.”

He continued, “No [they haven’t released the pay-per-view numbers yet]. But Oscar said that they are very good. Very good, yeah.”

While Ryan Garcia’s fight with Devin Haney was a lucrative one, he still has bigger fights on the horizon. Since his return to the boxing ring on Saturday, the star has called for many bouts including a rematch with Gervonta Davis, as well as a clash with UFC bantamweight champion Sean O’Malley.
