THE LOWDOWN

Rising star Ryan Garcia 20–0 (17 KOs) has an unblemished record in the professional ranks with 20 wins from 20 bouts. It has to be said that he has yet to be really tested though and this bout against Luke Campbell is regarded as a step up in class. King Ry has shown enough signs to suggest that he is capable of rising to the challenge and he is targeting an impressive performance which will lead to a world title shot.

Luke Campbell (20-3, 16 KOs) has not been in action since August 2019 when he lost to Ukrainian star Vasyl Lomachenko. His wait for a return to the ring was prolonged as this bout against Ryan Garcia was postponed from its original date in early December due to the Englishman having contracted Covid-19. It was reported to be only a mild case, but this is of course not ideal preparation going into a fight against a formidable opponent.

THE PREDICTION

There is plenty of hype surrounding Ryan Garcia and this looks set to increase as the exciting Mexican-American fighter is tipped to put in a classy display here against Luke Campbell to move in line for a world title shot. Campbell is a well-skilled fighter who will be a tricky opponent for Garcia but he is likely to be outdone by the speed of the younger man. The constant pressure may eventually wear Campbell down later in the fight and a win for Garcia via KO/TKO is predicted.

PREDICTION: Garcia to win via KO/TKO
