Ryan Garcia claimed he earned a remarkable eight-figure sum from his bout against Devin Haney.

'KingRy' entered the match as a significant underdog and was largely underestimated. However, his formidable left hook shifted the momentum. Garcia's landing of three knockdowns against Haney ultimately secured the upset victory via majority decision last Saturday.

Garcia dealt the WBC super lightweight champion his first professional career loss, managing to knock him down in the seventh, 10th, and 11th rounds. Their fight was categorized as a non-title contest on Friday due to Garcia's weigh-in at 143.2 pounds, surpassing the division limit by 3.2 pounds.

The long-standing rivals had agreed to a penalty of $500,000 for every pound they exceeded the 140-pound limit. 'The Dream' confirmed that Garcia honored the agreement, indicating that Garcia paid him a total of $1.5 million.

Despite taking a substantial financial blow, 'KingRy' asserted that he accumulated approximately $30 to $50 million from his victory. During a recent appearance on the PBD Podcast, Garcia discussed the anticipated pay-per-view numbers and his potential earnings from the fight.

"I know I brought more eyes to it from the casual fans. We're going to find it real soon. But I'm projected to make around $30 to $50 million."
