We have only begun in 2021 and already a lightweight contender battle in Dallas has us popping on the “Big Fight Weekend Preview” podcast.
Host T.J. Rives is back with senior writer Marquis Johns of BigFightWeekend.com and special guest Todd Grisham of the DAZN streaming service, as the guys are ready to preview the Ryan Garcia – Luke Campbell Saturday night
What will happen when the unbeaten Californian Garcia (above) steps up for his biggest test as a professional against the former Olympic Gold Medalist and World title contender Campbell in this scheduled 12-rounder? Marquis and Todd offer their insight and analysis on whether Garcia (20-0, 17 KOs), who has scored several early round knockouts in his recent career, will be up to the challenge if the fight goes to a 6th, 8th or even 10th round from the veteran from England.
Garcia won his most recent fight in February by first round KO. Meanwhile, Campbell (20-3) was last in the ring last August in a 12 round title loss to Vasyl Lomachenko in London.
The winner of this fight may very well get a shot at current WBC World Lightweight champion Devin Haney around May or June of this year.
Garcia is currently favored by Mybookie.ag at -410 and the oddsmakers believe that the under/over on this fight is at nine and a half rounds.
T.J. and Marquis also go over the undercard on this fight that includes: the Alvarado Brothers both in action in separate world title eliminator bouts themselves before Garcia-Campbell.
