Campbell has also challenged for various titles in the past. He fought Jorge Linares in September 2017 for the WBA and The Ring Lightweight titles. Yet, he again missed his opportunity to capture gold as Jorge won the fight via split decision.

Boxing experts believe that the English boxer is one of the best Lightweights at present. Thus, the fact that he missed his chance to shine twice now only makes him stronger in contention for what lies ahead.

Therefore, a fight for the interim title will definitely help him get back on track much sooner than he expected.

Will Ryan Garcia carry on his undefeated streak?

21-year-old Ryan Garcia is coming up as a huge sensation in the world of boxing. He last fought Francisco Fonseca in February 2020.

Like most of his fights, the bout ended with Fonseca eating a lightning-fast jab right in the face. He went crashing to the canvas, and Garcia marked his 8th first-round professional victory.

He holds a blotless record of 20-0-0, out of which 17 wins came via KO.

Thus, he is one of the most promising Lightweights active today. He boasts of impeccable hand speed, coupled with great power.

Furthermore, he holds a considerable reach advantage over most Lightweights due to his tall stature. His movements inside the ring incline towards calmness unless he finds a clear shot.
