Ryan Garcia was the ultimate underdog going into the fight against Devin Haney last weekend. Nobody, besides a handful of Garcia’s fans, thought he would defeat ‘The Dream,’ that too in such a dominant fashion. But that didn’t include Claressa Shields, who was present at the venue and predicted Haney’s win.

However, Garcia literally defied the odds to prove not only Shields wrong, but what seems like the majority of the boxing world. Nevertheless, though she is happy for Garcia, ‘The Goat’ feels ‘The Flash’ needs help! Something she revealed on social media yesterday with her heartfelt message to the boxer. However, the question is, why does she feel that way?

Turning to X, the two-division undisputed female champion wrote, “Winning erases so much stuff. Even [though] Ryan won and I’m happy he proved me & a lot of us wrong! He still [needs] to go sit and talk with someone.” As to why she feels that way, it could have something to do with Garcia’s bizarre antics on X leading up to the fight.

It’s widely understood that all of his antics, conspiracy theories, and whatnot, was all a ploy to make Haney drop his guard, to convince everyone he wasn’t serious about the fight. Garcia even took advantage of that by betting $2 million on himself and making $12 million from the bet alone.

However, Shields isn’t convinced all of those posts could have been to fool the world into thinking he wasn’t ready. So, Shields further added in her tweet, “Real s**t. [I don’t care] how y’all feel about it.” Despite what Shields thinks, a UFC legend is sure about Garcia’s marketing tactics.

In a social media post, Ryan Garcia claimed his fight against Devin Haney made him $50 million and more. So, it’s safe to say, marketing tactic or not, Garcia’s antics on X paid off big! So, while speaking about Garcia’s antics in his YouTube videoChael Sonnen didn’t hesitate to compare the boxer with Dennis Rodman.

Sonnen said, “I was going to say Ryan Garcia, and there was a basketball player named Dennis Rodman. I was just going to compare those two because they were very open and used that as part of their media, using it as part of their marketing.” It’s worth mentioning that like Garcia, Rodman was very unapologetic during his time in the sport, and because of it, he got a lot of attention.
