Ryan Garcia ‘B Sample’ Tests Positive for PEDs; Will There Be a Garcia vs Haney Rematch

Ryan Garcia has recently found himself embroiled in controversy after his B-sample tested positive for the banned substance Ostarine. Garcia made headlines earlier this year when he secured a majority decision victory over Devin Haney.

However, his win was already tainted due to a weight miss before the fight. Now, with the B-sample results, his reputation faces further scrutiny.

The B-Sample Results

The lab results for Garcia’s B-sample came back with an adverse finding for Ostarine, according to multiple reports. This revelation follows a failed VADA (Voluntary Anti-Doping Association) drug test administered ahead of the Haney fight. VADA tested Garcia both the day before and the day after the bout.

Ryan Garcia’s Response

In a now-deleted social media post, Garcia expressed his frustration by writing, “I F—ING LOVE STEROID.” However, his legal team maintains that he has never intentionally used any banned substance. They argue that contamination is the likely cause of the positive test result.

Garcia voluntarily had his hair collected and shipped to Dr. Pascal Kintz, a renowned expert in toxicology and hair-sample analysis. The results of Ryan’s hair sample came back negative, consistent with contamination. His ultra-low levels of Ostarine (in the billionth of a gram range) suggest that he did not gain any performance-enhancing benefit from the microscopic amounts in his system.

“Ryan Garcia is committed to clean and fair competition and has never intentionally used any banned substance,” Garcia’s legal team told Fight Freaks Unite. “Soon after being notified of his positive test, Ryan voluntarily had his hair collected and shipped to Dr. Pascal Kintz, the foremost expert in toxicology and hair-sample analysis.”

“The results of Ryan’s hair sample came back negative. This is consistent with contamination and demonstrably proves that Ryan had not ingested Ostarine over a period of time — the only way he would have had any advantage whatsoever in the ring.”

The boxing world awaits further developments in this saga. As Ryan Garcia’s legal team investigates the source of contamination, questions remain about the impact on his career and reputation. Whether he can clear his name or face consequences remains to be seen.
