Ryan Garcia weighed in at a hefty 143.2 lbs on Friday (Saturday in Manila) for his scheduled WBC junior welterweight title fight against Devin Haney in Brooklyn, New York. This is a significant 3.2 lbs over the weight limit of 140 lbs. Meanwhile, Haney hit the scales precisely at the championship limit.

In a pre-fight handshake agreement during Thursday's press conference, Garcia and Haney stipulated a $500,000 penalty for each pound exceeding the weight limit. According to a statement from Garcia's promoter, Golden Boy Promotions, the troubled social media star Ryan Garcia will uphold the agreement, allowing Haney to receive a hefty $1.5 million even before the fight starts. However, due to missing weight, Garcia will no longer be eligible to win the WBC title should he score an upset over Haney.

Below are the official weights:
