Ryan Garcia On Luke Campbell: ‘He’s Just Going To Get His Ass Whipped’
Ryan Garcia says he has something in store for Luke Campbell and it isn’t exactly pleasant.
Garcia vs. Campbell is scheduled to take place on January 2. It’ll be held inside the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. This bout will be contested for the interim WBC Lightweight Championship. Garcia’s unbeaten record is also at stake as he is a perfect 20-0 going into this match.
Ahead of the bout, Garcia told reporters during a news conference that he is prepared to batter Campbell to take home the interim gold (via BoxingScene.com).
“Luke Campbell, it’s inevitable for him; he’s just going to get his ass whipped. I’m not worried about Luke. He has no challenges for me. All he has are pitty-pat punches, amateur style punches. None of that is going to save him.
“The moment he feels my shots, he’s going to start backing up. I’ll figure out from there and surgically beat him down. I’m going to punish him and then go on to fight ‘Tank’ [Gervonta Davis].”
Garcia went as far as to say that what Campbell brings to the table is of little concern to him.
“I’m not even worried about fighting Luke Campbell. What experience does he have? Every time he stepped up, he lost. He even lost to a guy we never heard of. Who is Yvan Mendy?”
Garcia’s last outing took place back in February. “KingRy” knocked out Francisco Fonseca in the opening frame. Campbell’s last fight ended in a unanimous decision loss to Vasiliy Lomachenko. That bout was held back in August 2019.
