Haney vs. Garcia Prediction

Two of boxing’s finest young talents are set to exchange blows at Barclays Center this Saturday. Here are our Haney vs. Garcia predictions:

Devin Haney to Win via Decision 

Haney rolls into the Barclays Centre on a red-hot streak, boasting an undefeated record of 31 professional fights. But now, he must defend his invincible record against a fighter who beat him multiple times during his amateur days. Garcia has lostonly once in his professional career and has left the ring with the bragging rights on 24 occasions. 

Sticking with the numbers, we fancy Haney for a ninth points win on the trot. Don’t get us wrong, Garcia is a skilled operator – good defence, relentless engine, and a sharp boxing mind. But come Saturday night in Brooklyn, he’s facing a more complete fighter in Haney, with bags of talent and experience in championship rounds. That should make the difference between the two fighters.

Devin Haney to Score a Knockdown 

Garcia was knocked down twice in defeat to Gervonta Davis last year. Haney comes into this bout as the more polished fighter and we expect him to land some strong blows on his opponent. Haney is nicely priced at scoring a knockdown, which appears to be a good market to bet on.

Instead of opting for some of the more outrageous Haney vs. Garcia predictions, it’s wiser to count on Haney scoring a knockdown at some point of the bout.
