Ryan Garcia and Luke Campbell face off

Latest news

Christmas Day was just another day of the week for Luke Campbell – but he’s hoping to kick off the New Year with a bang.

The Hull lightweight spent the festive period in Dallas putting in the final preparations with trainer Shane McGuigan for his clash with Ryan Garcia tomorrow night.

Campbell, 33, spent Christmas Day away from his wife Lynsey and their three children to ensure he is in peak condition for the world-title eliminator in Texas.

“Christmas Day was certainly different but I treated it like any other Friday,” he said.

“Myself and Shane just treated it like any other day.

“It was spent away from family but you have to put in sacrifices to be ready.”

Campbell was due to facing rising American ace Garcia on December 5 but he caught coronavirus in training camp and had to halt preparations.

The London 2012 Olympic gold medallist didn’t suffer any serious symptoms though and was back in training following his isolation period.

There are no fears he won’t be ready for his chance to secure a shot at WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney for later in 2021.

Campbell has come up short in his previous two world-title attempts against Jorge Linares and Vasiliy Lomachenko.

But now, at 33, he believes he is in the prime of his career for what could be the year he joins the illustrious club of winning Olympic gold for Britain and a professional world title alongside James DeGale and Anthony Joshua.

He said: “Me being the best I can be means I will beat anyone in the lightweight division.

“I honestly believe I’m coming into my prime now.

“Everything that has happened in the past has been a learning experience to get me here.

“I believe I’m going to win this fight, 100 per cent.”
