RYAN GARCIA insists undisputed lightweight king Devin Haney doesn't have enough "killer instinct" to be a boxing superstar.
Haney put on a boxing masterclass in his dethroning of George Kambosos Jr last month, beautifully outpointing his way to a unanimous decision victory.
Garcia, however, was less than impressed by Haney's domination Down Under and attributes his failure to get a finish to a lack of ferocity.
He told BoxingScene: “I just think the way I grew up, we just always talk s**t.
"I don’t have no bad intention when I talk smack. When I look at [Haney-Kambosos] as a fellow athlete, I just say congratulations.
"Was it boring in my opinion? Yes. Could he have shown flashes of a killer instinct? Some people just don’t have it.

“He doesn’t have it. He will feel it when he’s in there with me and he knows what I’m talking about. He’s just not a good offensive fighter.
"You can be good offensively and not get hit. Floyd Mayweather used to run numbers on people and not get hit.
"He didn’t just move around. He had a killer instinct in him. Devin’s not like that.
"He just boxed his way to victory and I’m very proud of him.”

“I am going to campaign for the fight against Gervonta Davis.
"We want to be transparent about the process to prove to the people that we want this fight. I try to find ways to exploit the truth and clear the fog.”
The undefeated Garcia is anticipating a short night at the office, saying: “I am a great fighter.
