Luke Campbell will not go easy on Ryan Garcia

Coming off a loss against Lomachenko, Campbell says that Garcia will have to pay the price of all his “s*** talking.” In a recent interaction with Seconds Out, ‘Cool Hand’ Campbell opened up on his upcoming fight and his training regime.

When asked about Ryan Garcia’s social media mockery, Campbell said, “He can say and do what he wants to, it’s not going to change the fact that when he gets in the ring with me you know, I am gonna punish him for all the s*** talk.”

Well, it is much easier said than done. Considering the fact that Garcia is still unbeaten in his professional career, Luke Campbell will need to showcase some unprecedented skills in the fight. That said, the sport of boxing is not new to major upsets.

If Campbell can actually dictate the flow of the fight, he can put a quell on Garcia’s undefeated streak.

The matchup between Garcia and Campbell will define the landscape of the lightweight division. While Campbell is a top-rated lightweight, Garcia will still rule the odds because of his streak.

The winner of the contest will then possibly challenge Gervonta Davis for the WBC World lightweight strap. Another blockbuster matchup that can grab heavy attention from the fight fans.
