Ryan Garcia believes that he is %100 ready for the fight with Luke Campbell and believes that the Brit has no chance of defeating him when they share the ring for their WBC interim Lightweight title fight in the 2nd of January.
Garcia Ryan (20-0, 17 KOs) says that the only chance for Luke Campbell (20-3, 16 KOs) will be, if he never trained ahead of the fight but he did which eliminates all the chance s for the Brit to win the fight.
The two lightweights willl collide on a DAZN televised fight card and the winner will then move on to facing WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney. However, Garcia isn’t too moved by the prospect of facing Haney and will prefer setting up a fight with WBA lightweight champion Gervonta Davis.
“I know it’s a big moment in my career, and I’m taking it 100% serious,” said Ryan Garcia to Esnews. “I want to make a statement. Obviously, you’ve got to train for it, prepare for it, and that’s what I’ve been doing.
“He’s a good fighter, but I think he’d give me problems if I didn’t work my a** off. Luckily, I’m a very talented fighter and I have speed, timing, and reflexes.
“The only chances he had is if I didn’t work hard, so I guess he has none. They obviously think I’ not 100% focused, but in reality, I’m so focused and I’m ready to prove to everybody I’m here for a long ttime.
Garcia further made clear, he has no intentions of being a pretty boy and will be out firing ones the bell is heard in the first round. He also calls on Campbell to try knocking him out as the he will definitely be out to hurt him.
“I don’t care how I look outside. All I know is, he says he’s in his prime,” said Ryan about Campbell. “He’s confident that he’s going to win this fight, and he has no excuses and he has no excuses after the fight.
“That’s all I ask. No matter what happens in the ring, you’re going to see me firing away. Luke Campbell, if you want to come knock me out, let’s go,” said King Ryan.
Garcia even went ahead to reveal a strategy Canelo Alvarez has been telling him to implement. It appears Canelo will like Garcia to target his opponent biceps during fights but as a novice, it won’t be advisable to try implementing it on a fighter as experienced Campbell.
Canelo Alvarez was successful hitting the arms of Callum Smith during their WBA/WBC Super Middleweight championship fight last weekend but Garcia doesn’t seem to like the idea. He prefers hitting his opponentsvin the face.
“Canelo is very talented, he’s strong, he doesn’t waste his punches,” said Ryan Garcia about Canelo Alvarez. ‘When he throws, he hits you hard because he doesn’t waste any energy.
“Unless you have some talent and can snap off some good punches, there’s no way you’re going to keep that man off of you. He has very good defense.
“He wants me to hit them in the arms. ‘Canelo, I don’t like to hit people in the arms because I want to hit their face.’ He’s like, ‘Trust me, it works.’ I’m like, ‘Alright, I’ll do it.’
