WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney had some pretty strong words for Ryan Garcia on Twitter Tuesday. 

Devin Haney @Realdevinhaney

Ryan Garcia is the true definition of a coward... a few weeks ago he wanted sympathy because he was having “Mental Health issues” this week he talking sh*t about me... it’s funny now he came out after Javier fortuna found another opponent

Devin Haney @Realdevinhaney

& if Luke Campbell dropped you what would have Linares have done to you? 😩

Devin Haney @Realdevinhaney

& let’s be real you never wanted to fight Linares you ducked him like you ducked me

Here's what Garcia had to say last week after Haney defeated Jorge Linares by unanimous decision on Saturday night:

Barring a big right from Linares in the 10th round that clearly stunned Haney, the matchup with Linares was never particularly in doubt. 

Sure sounds like Garcia and Haney might be stirring the pot for a potential matchup down the road with the WBC lightweight title on the line. Never too early to get the hype wheels rolling.
