Mauricio Sulaiman said, “I am exercising my authority as President of the World Boxing Council to announce that we are removing Ryan Garcia from any activities within our organization. We reject any form of discrimination.

Garcia posted an apology of sorts on X.

I was trolling, I have to stop all the killing. I love everyone, I'm sorry if I hurt you.

In addition to his suspension from the WBC, Garcia also received a one-year discipline from the New York State Athletic Commission, prior to his April fight against Devin Haney over a drunken debut by faking a ban.

Prior to the fight against Haney, questions were raised about Garcia's behavior. His volatile behavior in personal and social media has caused concern and controversy among people. He later denied being affected by any such problem. “Come on, guys, do you really think I'm crazy?” Garcia said after Haney.

In June, Garcia was arrested after causing approximately $15,000 in damage to a Beverly Hills hotel. The boxer's lawyer said this is a very difficult time for Garcia, citing dire news regarding his mother's health.

On Thursday, Garcia's family distanced itself from his racist statements. They released a statement, “Our family clearly does not endorse any race or religious statements. These are not the real Garcia's as we raised them. We have been very supportive of Ryan's mental health issues since then. We are committed to providing support and encouragement for his immediate and long-term well-being.”
