Ryan Garcia made a big claim on Wednesday ahead of a looming suspension.

Garcia went on a social media rant and aired out all his current issues. Amid the flurry of messages, he said he would be retiring.

“Mom has cancer

“I’m being sued

“My supplements were tainted

“Going thru a divorce

“Always GETTING S-IT TALKED on the internet FOR YEARS

“Devin asking for my victory to be taken away

“I’m getting hit with everything

“I STILL LOVE GOD, HE IS EVERYTHING,” Garcia said in his rant (profanity edited by LBS).

Garcia then said he was considering retirement and going into acting or singing.

And then after several messages, Garcia concluded by announcing his retirement.

“I’m officially retired,” Garcia ultimately said.

Garcia has become just as well known in recent years for his off-the-wall social media activity as for his boxing. But boxing reporter Dan Rafael noted that Garcia’s “retirement” claim came just ahead of when the boxer is set to be suspended for his positive drug test after his win over Devin Haney.

The 25-year-old Garcia is 25-1 in his pro boxing career. He lost to Gervonta Davis in 2023 and beat Haney in April, though that outcome is set to be overturned due to Garcia’s positive drug test.
