The boxer repeatedly used slurs against Black people and made anti-Muslim remarks in comments livestreamed on social media.

Ryan Garcia was expelled by the World Boxing Council (WBC) on Thursday after repeatedly using racial slurs against Black people and making anti-Muslim remarks during a livestream on social media.

WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman announced the penalty against Garcia on the social media platform X, stating, “Exercising my authority as president of the WBC, I am hereby expelling Ryan Garcia from any activity with our organization. We reject any form of discrimination.”

Garcia posted a partial apology on X, saying, “I was trolling I want all the killing to stop. I love everyone sorry if I offended you.”

An attorney representing Garcia did not immediately respond to an email from The Associated Press seeking comment.

Last month, Garcia was suspended for a year by the New York State Athletic Commission, which also ruled that his April 20 victory over Devin Haney would be considered a no-contest after he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.
