‘KingRy’ will enter this fight as a sure-shot favorite. He is undefeated as a professional and has 20 wins to his name. Out of all his wins, he has finished 17 of his opponents via T/KO. However, he has not faced anyone like ‘Cool Hand’.

Luke Campbell is not an easy contender to beat. The Brit is a veteran in the sport with 20 wins and 3 losses in his seven-year career. He lost his last fight to Vasyl Lomachenko in 2019 and will look to derail the youngster.
