Luke Campbell Vows To KO Ryan Garcia
Luke Campbell believes he will shut the lights off Ryan Garcia.
Campbell and Garcia are scheduled to meet on January 2. The two will clash inside the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. This bout will be contested for the interim WBC Lightweight Championship.
Going into this bout, Garcia is the betting favorite at -250 according to BetMGM. Campbell is the +175 underdog.
During an interview with Fight Hype TV, Campbell said that as long as he focuses on himself, he will get the job done (h/t Bad Left Hook).
“Always for me, I’ve got to go in there not making any mistakes and being the best I can be. And I believe me being the best I can be will beat anyone in the lightweight division. I believe I’m coming into my prime now, and everything that’s happened in the past has all been a learning experience to get me where I am today, to perform the way I will perform on January 2nd.”
As far as a prediction goes, Campbell kept it brief.
“I believe I’m going to win this fight, 100%…he’s getting knocked out.”
Campbell hasn’t competed since falling short in a lightweight title bout against Vasiliy Lomachenko back in August 2019. Garcia’s most recent outing took place back in February. He scored a first-round knockout victory over Francisco Fonseca.
