Repercussions for Ryan Garcia ’s positive test for performance-enhancing drugs have become a reality, erasing a massive upset. Garcia (24-1) tested positive for ostarine in VADA tests before and on the day of his fight against Devin Haney on April 20 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., putting his majority decision victory in jeopardy. Garcia submitted a “B” sample, which also returned positive for the banned substance. Despite denying intentional PED use , the boxing star has reached a settlement with the New York State Athletic Commission, including overturning the win over Haney (31-0) to a no contest, according to a first report from boxing journalist Dan Rafael. In addition, Garcia has agreed to a one-year suspension from boxing, must forfeit his $1.1M official contract purse to Golden Boy Promotions, and must pay the commission a $10,000 fine, which is the maximum the state allows.
