Sean O’Malley Wants To Snub Ryan Garcia Fight And Go ‘Straight To The Big Dog’

Let's see if his bark is worse than his bite.

Sean O’Malley Wants To Snub Ryan Garcia Fight And Go ‘Straight To The Big Dog’

Suga still has plenty on his plate but that did not stop him from saying he might go for all the marbles and fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. next.

Sean O’Malley successfully defended the UFC bantamweight title with a one-sided unanimous decision win over Marlon Vera at UFC 299 last weekend in Miami. After the fight, Suga called out featherweight champion Ilia Topuria and later said that if that fight would happen, he would gladly settle for the easy-to-beat Merab Dvalishvili in another title defence.

Now O’Malley says he might go for the biggest fish out there: Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Suga and boxing’s new golden boy Ryan Garcia collided in a war of words last month after Garcia claimed that he would beat O’Malley in a UFC fight. Previously, the two went back and forth while discussing a possible boxing match. But whether boxing or MMA, it looks like Sean is no longer interested in fighting King Ryan.

“I just think mentally that kid is not where he needs to be,” O’Malley said. “We’ll see how he looks against Devin Haney and kind of go from there. I feel like an MMA fight is just so unrealistic. There’s 0% chance he would ever even make it to that fight…Floyd [Mayweather’s] still kicking.”

“Floyd’s still running around the boxing room. I keep going out there and do what I’m doing, I might just skip Ryan, I might skip Gervonta and go straight to the big dog.”

Well, it seems like O’Malley is looking for the biggest payout ever. He is expected to defend his title against top contender Dvalishvili but he called out Topuria because a super fight between champions, especially if it is held in a football stadium in Spain, would be a much bigger money fight for him.

Crossing over to boxing could even pay more for O’Malley. Look no further than Francis Ngannou who made a reported $20 million USD ($30.23 million AUD) fighting former boxing heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua last Friday.

Garcia and Tank Davis are big-name boxers so fighting either is going to be a big-money fight. King Ry is scheduled to face Devin Haney on April 20 for the WBC super lightweight championship. Meanwhile, Davis is linked to a June boxing event against #2 ranked Fran Martin.

 A boxing match against “Money” Mayweather however, is the most lucrative fight of all. Just ask Conor McGregor himself who walked the billionaire strut all the way to the bank.
