Ryan Garcia: I will hurt Amir Khan, he’s delusional

Garcia says he’s ready to put Khan back in his place.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

In this video interview with Ryan Garcia — following a video made by Amir Khan where he rated Devin Haney well above Garcia — Garcia fires back at Khan by saying he’s never been much of a smart fighter so he should keep his opinions to himself. Garcia would also take the opportunity to invite Khan to a sparring session so he can demonstrate just how good he’s gotten. Check out some excerpts below...

“I don’t know how to put this in a nice way, but I’m really gonna be nice as I can up here because (Khan) seems like a good guy but he’s literally delusional as fuck. He doesn’t know shit...Think about it. He has the same type of hand speed as me, right? The thing he didn’t have was the brain, he wasn’t smart. When he fought he just did dumb shit and only relied on his speed. I got speed and power, I got two things, and I got (a brain), and I’m a beast at all other aspects of boxing.

“He just didn’t reach his full potential...now he wants to talk shit and act like he’s something he’s not. First of all, you don’t know who I am...I might be a pretty boy and whatnot, but if people get disrespectful, I’m gonna get disrespectful.

“In the ring it shows who you truly are, so come spar me. We can do it low key. But get back on the interview, you better tell them what it is because I will fuck up Amir Khan. He could come in at 160, he could not fuck with me at all. I will fuckin’ hurt Amir Khan.”
