Haney vs Garcia time: When does fight start in UK and US tonight?

Devin Haney and Ryan Garcia will meet in a huge fight this evening, rekindling a rivalry from their time as amateurs.

The Americans, now 25, went 3-3 across six fights before turning professional, with Haney going on to become a true pound-for-pound star. The “Dream” reigned as undisputed lightweight champion until late last year, when he vacated the belts before taking the WBC super-lightweight title from Regis Prograis.

Following that masterclass, the unbeaten Haney was due to defend the gold for the first time this weekend, only for Garcia’s failed weight-in to make him ineligible to win the belt.

Garcia enters the bout with just one loss to his name, having suffered a stoppage by Gervonta Davis one year ago. “King Ryan” bounced back from that loss by stopping Oscar Duarte in December, but he faces a stiffer test here. Garcia’s recent behaviour out of the ring has raised concerns over his mental health, and he missed weight by three pounds on Friday – before honouring a bet to pay Haney $500,000 for each pound overweight.
