Ryan García has been quite verbal in lashing out at his upcoming contender Luke Campbell and his latest flame at the British boxer claims “he talks a lot of s**t”.
WBC Silver lightweight champion Ryan García (20-0, 17 KOs) will return to the squared circle on 2nd January as he takes on two-time lightweight world title challenger Luke Campbell (20-3, 16 KOs) for the vacant WBC interim lightweight title at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
Campbell, recently, made a bold statement that García only “looks good on video”, asserting that the training videos the American pugilist puts up for his social media audience doesn’t “look good in the ring.”
“You can throw 1,000 uppercuts in 5 seconds on the pads. But it’s not real. There’s no one in front of you trying to take your head [off], just someone holding the pads,” Campbell recently told ESPN.
Ryan García wants to prove to everyone that Luke Campbell “doesn’t have it”
A couple of days has passed and Campbell has received the rebuttal from his adversary.
“He talks a lot of sh-t, that he’s gonna KO me,” Ryan García said during a virtual press conference hosted by Mario Lopez, “To be honest, anytime a guy shouldn’t be in the ring with me, I got them out of there real quick. So, I’m going to prove to everyone that Luke Campbell doesn’t have it.”
García hinted the same a couple of weeks prior to the bout, claiming that his 33-year-old opponent will “get his ass whipped” in the ring.
The undefeated 22-year-old has registered straight knockouts in his last four fights including his last victory against Nicaraguan boxer Francisco Fonseca on 14th February this year at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California and the oozing confidence showcases that García is aiming to repeat the same results once again as he collides with Campbell.
“It’s my time, my era. I’m gonna show the world who I’m really am. I’m not here to play games. I’m tired of hearing all the misconceptions about me on Instagram. They don’t know the work I put in. This is my time. This is my moment and I’m ready to show the world.”
