Ryan Garcia’s win over Devin Haney is now in question.

Garcia tested positive for a banned performance enhancing drug in a test taken related to his majority decision win over Haney, according to multiple reports on Wednesday night. Garcia reportedly tested positive for Ostarine in his Voluntary Anti-Doping Association test that was taken ahead of the fight

Garcia now has 10 days to request that his B-sample be tested. According to ESPN’s Mike Copinger, Garcia’s first test also screened positive for 19-norandrosterone, which is another banned substance, though that is unconfirmed.

Garcia, 25, stunned Haney and came up with three knockdowns in his majority decision win at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn last month. The WBC super lightweight title was supposed to be on the line, but Garcia was 3.2 pounds over the limit at the weigh-in. Haney, despite his loss, retained the title belt.

The loss was Haney’s first of his career. He now holds a 31-1 record with 15 KOs.
