Campbell Ready To Relive Olympic Pressure

Looking ahead to this Saturday night in London, lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko is ready for what Luke Campbell throws at him inside the O2.

“Of course I’m excited and I can’t wait to come to the ring and show my boxing skill for British fans, and for fans around the world,” said Lomachenko.

“Luke Campbell is not an easy fighter, he’s a top fighter, he’s a smart fighter, a technical fighter, so it will be very interesting and a technical fight. Of course I’m ready, that’s why I come to the UK.”

After nearly winning a world title against Jorge Linares in 2017, Campbell is ready for the pressure that comes fighting one of the best in the world.

“I’ve been through a lot,” said Campbell. “Having the experience of the London Olympics, the crowds and the pressure of going out there and getting a medal, and winning.

“My professional career, going over to America to fight Linares for a world title with everything that was going on as well. I’ve learnt from my experiences and I’m here today,” he said in an article published by Sky Sports. “Boy do I love a challenge. I’ve always said for years, being in boxing, to be the best, you have to beat the best, and this is certainly one of those challenges.

“You can’t go in there worrying about what someone else is going to do. You’ve got to go in there and concentrate on yourself, that you’re not making any mistakes, and you are the best person you can be on that night.”
