The Brit said, “When you have that amount of followers, you have to keep them interested with stuff, videos. For me, I prefer to just live my life. I’ve not followed his career. I’ve had no reason to.”

He admitted that Garcia has a huge fanbase on social media. So all that training and workout stuff he posts is just for enticing the crowd. He felt every boxing trainee can hit thousands of punches on the pads, but in reality, very few of them can do so.

“It all looks good on video, but there’s plenty of kids out there who can hit the pads quickly, it’s not real.”

Campbell seemed uninterested in Garcia’s training videos. He believes his focus is on himself and wants to make himself better than anyone else.

Even though Garcia has an upper hand in this fight, the Britisher Luke Campbell exhibits all the characteristics to astound Garcia in this matchup. He is a smart fighter who capitalizes on his opponent’s weaknesses. Saturday night, he will be keen on doing so.

The duo will fight for the interim WBC lightweight belt. This is a high-risk and high-rewarding fight for Campbell. If he adds another ‘W’ to his run in this contest, there won’t be any stopping him.
