Garcia is fresh off a victory over Francisco Fonseca, where he would once again put the division on notice.

Luke Campbell is looking to bounce back off a loss to divisional tyrant Vasiliy Lomachenko. The Ukrainian walked away with a host of vacant titles after scoring a critical knockdown. He lost via unanimous decision back in August 2019 in the O2 arena. Additionally, he faced certain difficulties with his patented side-switch movement that has puzzled many opponents before him.

Chiefly, a victory in a bout against Ryan Garcia will be the fuel that will help return Campbell back to pole position. Many boxing fans and pundits have gone on record to say that he is one of the best to never win a title. Time will be the best indication as to whether he will actualize his potential.
