Garcia claimed the win with a stoppage in the seventh round. It was an electrifying matchup with both the boxers having significant moments in the ring. However, Ryan Garcia got the last laugh as his body shot was too brutal to handle for Luke Campbell.

Despite relishing an early knockdown in the second round, Campbell didn’t keep up the pressure. He outclassed Garcia on certain occasions but ended up surrendering to one of his left hooks to the body.

That said, Jake Paul had a great time seeing his fellow Internet partner grab the win. ‘The Problem Child’ put his whole reaction on Instagram as he saw the fight live from his home.

He was shocked to see Garcia’s fight-ending shot that curbed Luke Campbell.

Jake Paul also called out Ryan Garcia

The YouTuber boxer had called out ‘King Ry’ several times on social media. However, it appeared as banter with no possibility of happening in the future.

This callout cannot be taken seriously, as Paul (2-0) has been calling out multiple combat stars ever since finishing Nate Robinson on the Tyson vs Jones Jr undercard. The names on his list include Ben Askren, Conor McGregor, and Dillon Danis.

However, his stint with Ryan Garcia seemed to be a social media stunt as Jake Paul and Garcia are reportedly friends. While ‘KingRy‘ began 2021 with a sensational KO win, it could be just the beginning of him realizing his potential and claiming a full world title.

Jake Paul vs Ryan Garcia may be a bit farfetched considering the stark contrast in their weight categories. Furthermore, Garcia’s pursuit of world titles, primarily the WBC title, will keep him busy.
