Ryan Garcia: I'll Put The Final Nail in The Coffin of Campbell's Career!

Undefeated lightweight contender Ryan Garcia is not intimidated by the experience level of Olympic gold medal winner Luke Campbell.

Campbell suffered defeats in his world title fights against Vasiliy Lomachenko and Jorge Linares - although he was competitive in both fights.

On December 5th, Garcia will face Campbell for the WBC's interim-title.

The winner will become the mandatory challenger to full champion Devin Haney.


Campbell believes Garcia and his handlers made a big mistake in accepting this fight.

But Garcia expects a very impressive performance.

"This will put me at the top of the lightweight division. I have to go through Campbell," Garcia, aged 22, told Sky Sports.

"He hasn't fought anybody except Lomachenko and Jorge Linares and he lost those. If your experience is losing? I don't want that experience. This is his 'get to the top or not' type of fight. Me? I'm still that young gun coming up.

"I keep hearing him say he's going to knock me out! He's not. He couldn't even knock out a 126lbs Lomachenko. He's not going to beat me. He's talking a good game. But he'll learn real quick that I hit harder than Lomachenko. This is his last chance but I'll put the final nail in the coffin [of his career]. He fought Yvan Mendy, who I've never heard of, and he lost! So what experience does he have, really?"

Garcia is trained by veteran coach Eddy Reynoso, who also works with Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

"I train with the pound-for-pound champion (Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez). He will learn real soon that I'm not there just to do Instagram videos. You'll see how much I bring. I'm a true fighter, not an Instagram fighter. I may do all that [social media] because I can and I have the opportunity, but I feel disrespected big time as a fighter," Garcia said.

"I'm not here to play games. I'll start throwing my punches and he'll see. If I catch him clean, if he gets hurt, he's out of there. There will be no escape. It's over, the moment he gets hurt."

I think Garcia will win just because of his hunger really. I see him as quicker, both in attack and defense. I like Garcia; I find him the least obnoxious of the young guns at 135 and 130.

Campbell either going to sleep or losing a decision. R Garcia winning this one.

He really isnt hittable, I'm curious about his chin because he hasnt been hit flush in his short career

Comment by richardt on 10-24-2020

The problem I see is how people Pidgeon hole fighters by saying things like "Instagram fighter" and recently for Lopez "Only a punchers chance". Fans make that mistake a lot in boxing.

[QUOTE=Apollo7;20836310]I don't really know too much about Garcia. He seems quite inexperienced and hittable but also reminds me a little of Calzaghe in style and he was pretty successful. Need to see him tested. This fight should tell me more.[/QUOTE]…
