Devin Haney wants to know what Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Ryan Garcia discussed on their jog in early January, when negotiations between Haney and Garcia collapsed.

Haney produced a career-best performance to win the WBC super-lightweight title from Regis Prograis on December 9 in San Francisco, putting him on course to fight Garcia, who a week earlier had stopped Oscar Duarte Jurado in eight rounds.

A Haney-Garcia fight then appeared unlikely to happen when Garcia spoke of his desire to instead challenge Rolando Romero. Confirmation of Romero’s fight with Isaac Cruz on March 30 led to a resumption in negotiations and ultimately a Haney-Garcia matchup being cemented for April 20 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

“Ryan called me out, we went into discussions, and then we fell out of discussions, and we all know what happened next,” Haney told the MMA Hour. “He went on a jog with Floyd.

“He went on a jog, and then he had a change of heart, so the fight fell out. He was in negotiations with Rolly [Romero], Pitbull [Cruz], and I really didn’t know what was going on, so I was looking out at what was next [for me] because that fight fell out. Pitbull and Rolly agreed to fight, and then it was ‘Here comes Ryan.’”

Despite the parties’ previous frustrations with one another, agreeing to terms became “easy” when they began to re-negotiate.

“It was easy, because I feel if two guys wanna make a fight happen, it’s not that hard,” Haney said. “Of course, we were back and forth over the numbers. That part will always take time, but other than that, it wasn’t really hard for the fight to be made.”

“It’s a great deal,” Haney said, adding after being asked if he would receive a career-high purse for the fight: “By far.”
