Ryan Garcia Dismissed By WBC President After George Floyd Remarks

Ryan Garcia was expelled from WBC after the boxer's disgusting racial remarks about George Floyd.

Since his bout against Devin Haney, Ryan Garcia has been making headlines for all sorts of negative reasons. First, the boxer came 3.5 pounds heavier and looked mentally fatigued. However, he won the boxing match against reigning WBC champion Devin Haney, but the former tested positive for a banned substance, Ostarine, after the bout, and the positive dope test snatched the credit of victory from him. He was suspended for 1 year and fined $1.1 million by the New York State Athletic Commission. Now, the 25-year-old boxer has made headlines after his controversial comments on the Clubhouse, an IOS social media app.

“I hate n**gers, I’m anti-black, I’m the KKK. Hey, let’s go bring George Floyd back to life and go kill that n**ger again’… I can’t believe this is who ppl were dying on a hill for?”

Ryan Garcia’s racial comments

After getting the backlash for his insensitive comments, Ryan Garcia on a livestream denied any kind of apology and said this:

Ryan Garcia’s no-remorse attitude didn’t go well with World Boxing Council president Mauricio Sulaiman, who made a strong decision and expelled the boxer from the WBC for his constant violation of the council protocols and ethics. He wished him luck and advised him to get some sort of mental help.

“Exercising my authority as president of the WBC, I am hereby expelling Ryan Garcia from any activity with our organization. We reject any form of discrimination. I fear for Ryan well well-being as he has declined multiple attempts for our help with mental health and substance abuse.”
