Hearn's Perspective: Ryan's 'Easy Way' is Just Smart Boxing

Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn weighed in on Ryan Garcia's latest ring rival pick, Rolando Romero, over Devin Haney.

"It's a real head-scratcher. I was under the impression that Ryan Garcia was all about legacy, eager to duke it out with top-tier champs.

Yet, I can't fault him for his move – opting for the path of least resistance to the title," Hearn commented to Matchroom Boxing.

The buzz was all about a Haney vs. Garcia face-off, but Ryan shifted gears, setting his sights on Rolando Romero, the reigning WBA bantamweight champ.
