Haney Vs. Garcia PPV Price Cut To $69.99 Due To Low Fan Interest

The PPV price for Devin Haney vs. Ryan Garcia has dropped from $80 to $69.99 amid fears fans are not buying into the April 20 clash, which will be live on DAZN. 

Current reports suggest the fight is not selling enough tickets for the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The ringside seats range from $5,000 to $10,000, making them unaffordable for most boxing fans. As we have reported, Haney urged his fans to buy tickets, while Garcia is on record saying the prices are too high. Haney’s last fight against Regis Prograis reportedly did between 30,000-50,000 PPV buys, showing the lack of buzz around the two-weight world champion. 

The undercard has also garnered criticism. The co-main event is a non-title lightweight fight featuring Arnold Barboza Jr. and Sean McComb. Barboza Jr. is undefeated with a 29-0 record, but he was seen as a backup for Garcia if Ryan pulled out of the fight following potential mental health concerns. McComb is ranked eighth in the WBO but is a small name in the States as the Brit seeks a breakout year.

Fans had seen Isaac Cruz vs Rolando Romero and Sebastian Fundora vs Tim Tszyu, two pulsating fights on Amazon Prime Video last month. The value for money has left DAZN struggling to sell Haney vs. Garcia. This is especially since the Amazon PPV was priced at $70. Much of the focus has also been on Garcia’s mindset. His admission of drinking and smoking weed showed a fighter who is not focused. His erratic social media activity has also not helped, leading many to think Haney will dominate in a one-sided fight.
