Devin Haney's camp, led by promoter Eddie Hearn, is calling for a no-contest ruling on his recent loss to Ryan Garcia

Garcia's victory on April 20th has been clouded by controversy after he tested positive for a banned substance, ostarine, prior to the fight. 

Adding to the controversy, Garcia weighed in three pounds over the agreed limit.

Hearn expressed Haney's frustration, stating that regardless of Garcia's innocence or guilt, having performance-enhancing drugs in his system casts doubt on the fairness of the match. 

Hearn, drawing from his experience with fighters who faced similar situations, emphasized the importance of Garcia and his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, proving his innocence to the New York State Athletic Commission. 

Until then, Haney's camp insists on the fight being declared a no-contest, highlighting the challenges faced by boxers in clearing their names in such situations.
