Ryan Garcia’s Victory in Question After Positive Drug Test.


Conor McGregor calls for lifetime ban of Ryan Garcia after reported positive drug test following victory


In a surprising turn of events, Ryan Garcia emerged victorious against Devin Haney in their recent bout in Brooklyn on April 20th, despite being deemed a heavy underdog. The fight, slated to be for the WBC super lightweight championship, took an unexpected twist when Garcia weighed in three pounds overweight, rendering the title ineligible for contention.

 

Garcia's triumph, however, has been clouded by allegations of doping. ESPN reported that Garcia tested positive for ostarine, a prohibited substance categorized as a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM), both the day before and the day of the fight. While Garcia vehemently denied any wrongdoing, asserting he has "never taken a steroid in [his] life" and lacks knowledge of where to procure such substances, ostarine, though not a steroid, can promote muscle growth.

 

The controversy escalated when Conor McGregor, a prominent figure in combat sports, called for severe repercussions against Garcia. McGregor, in a since-deleted post on social media, advocated for a lifetime ban, citing Garcia's alleged manipulation of weight and utilization of performance-enhancing substances. McGregor's stance marks a significant shift from his previous support of Garcia, notably demonstrated after Garcia's defeat to Gervonta "Tank" Davis last year.

 

The revelation of Garcia's positive drug test comes post-fight, leaving his victory subject to potential overturning pending confirmation of the test results. Despite Garcia's impressive performance, which included knocking down Haney three times and dealing the WBC super lightweight champion his first defeat, the integrity of the match hangs in the balance.

 

Moreover, the lead-up to the bout was marred by controversy, with Garcia and Haney engaging in a heated altercation at a press event held at the Empire State Building days prior. The fallout from this confrontation led to the cancellation of their planned ceremonial first pitch at a New York Mets game that evening, further adding to the drama surrounding the event.

 

As the dust settles from this clash, the future of Ryan Garcia's victory and his career trajectory remain uncertain, overshadowed by the specter of doping allegations and the impending decision regarding the validity of his triumph.
