Ryan Garcia has been banned by the World Boxing Council (WBC) for using discriminatory slurs during a livestream on social media. WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman announced the decision on the platform X, formerly known as Twitter.

"Exercising my authority as president of the WBC, I am hereby expelling Ryan Garcia from any activity with our organization," Sulaiman posted. "We reject any form of discrimination."

Garcia later apologized on X, stating, "I was trolling. I want all the killing to stop. I love everyone, sorry if I offended you."

Sky Sports has reached out to Garcia's promoter, Golden Boy, for a comment.

Last month, Garcia's surprise victory over Devin Haney in April was changed to a no contest after he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. The New York State Athletic Commission also suspended Garcia for a year, fined him $10,000, and ordered him to forfeit the $1 million he earned from the fight.

Garcia's lawyers argued that he was a "victim of substance contamination" and noted that he has consistently passed drug tests, even when not training for a fight.
