Campbell fight time tonight: What time is Ryan Garcia vs Luke Campbell tonight?
Luke Campbell ready for a ’challenge’ against Lomachenko
Luke Campbell will be hoping to cause an upset in the USA on Saturday night, when he takes on up-and-coming star Ryan Garcia. The Yorkshire boxer knows that a win over Garcia would all but confirm a world title shot.
Campbell will be hoping to bounce back from his last fight, which was a defeat to Vasyl Lomachenko.
The unanimous decision defeat came in August 2019; almost 18 months ago.
The fight is a risky one for Campbell, who could fall from the elite level with a defeat.
The 2012 Olympic gold medallist has had a largely successful career, and has still never been knocked out.
Despite Garcia’s popularity in the US, he faces a stern test against an experienced Campbell.
The Brit has won 20 of his 23 professional fights, having only suffered defeats on three previous occasions.
Garcia is 11 years younger than Campbell at 22 years old, and has an exemplary record.
He’s won all of his 20 professional fights, including stunning wins over Romero Duno, Francisco Fonseca, and Jayson Velez.
