Campbell Won’t Wait For Mikey For Next Fight
With Mikey Garcia’s fate up in the air, especially regarding his WBC lightweight title, Luke Campbell has decided to take one more fight in 2018.
Campbell, who is the mandatory for Garcia’s WBC title after getting a measure of revenge over Yvan Mendy in September at Wembley Stadium, is looking to fight one more time while Garcia settles on what’s next.
With Garcia looking to move up two weight classes to face Errol Spence Jr, and a potential fight against Vasyl Lomachenko, both Campbell and IBF mandatory challenger Richard Commey are left in the lurch.
“We’re not waiting for Mikey to make his decision/move,” Campbell told Sky Sports.
“We’re in the right position but will continue to do what we do with my career, I’m not going to sit here waiting, I’ll stay active and we will look for other fights in the meantime.
“I only want big fights now, I’m at the top level and want to join the elite.”
Campbell lays credit for his growth and performance against Mendy to his new trainer Shane McGuigan. “I thought it was a nice comfortable win over Mendy, I was in a great place knowing Shane was there with me, our relationship has hit it off,” Campbell told Sky Sports.
“In a short period of time I’ve made massive changes, listening every day to Shane and my team-mates and am adapting really well. I’m excited to see the future. These next four years will be the best of my boxing career.
“As soon as Mikey makes a decision as to what is happening, we can make a plan for it, if he vacates or keeps the WBC belt, we can plan from there. The main thing is to stay active.”
