‘Pretty Boy Boxer’ Garcia Expelled from WBC for Racist Comments

Repeated downfalls including arrest for possession of banned substances and vandalism of hotel property

Boxing star Ryan Garcia banned from WBC for racist remarks

Ryan Garcia (25, USA), who was rising as a star leading the world of boxing with his good looks and fierce fists, was expelled from the World Boxing Council (WBC) for making racist remarks.

USA Today reported Garcia’s expulsion on the 7th (Korean time), citing comments from WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman.

Garcia repeated racist language on social media and criticized George Floyd, a black man who died in 2020 after being detained by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

“As WBC President, I am exercising my authority to expel Garcia from all activities of our organization. The WBC rejects discrimination in any form and I hope Garcia finds peace,” Sulaiman said.

Garcia’s boxing career reached its peak on April 21st at the WBC super lightweight title.

At the time, Garcia broke many people’s expectations and won 2-0 by decision against WBC super lightweight champion Devin Haney (25, USA).

Although he failed to win the fight due to a failed weigh-in, the boxing world was thrilled by the birth of a star.

Garcia’s rise to stardom was swift.

Immediately after the match with Haney, he was suspended for one year by the New York State Athletic Commission after being tested for the banned substance Ostarine.

In June, he was arrested for vandalizing a hotel room and hallway in Beverly Hills.

Oscar De La Hoya, founder of Garcia’s agency Golden Boy Promotions, said in a statement that “there is no place for hate or bigotry in our company, and we condemn Ryan’s recent comments in the strongest terms.

Garcia also belatedly apologized, saying, “I was ‘trolling’ (the act of deliberately upsetting others to get attention) and I’m sorry if I offended you.” 온라인카지노사이트
