Ryan Garcia and Luke Campbell put a buzz-worthy main event for their fans. Many of the boxing enthusiasts thought that this bout would be a one-sided affair and Garcia would register an easy win. But it appalled everyone when ‘KingRy’ was sent to his knees in round 2. However, Garcia pulled off a victory in round 7 by knocking out the Brit.
Now, the big question popping up among Garcia fans is what’s next for the undefeated stalwart?
The 22-year-old has been yearning for a shot at the ultimate lightweight gold for a while and it seems his time has finally arrived for the same.
With a win over ‘Cool Hand’, Garcia captured the WBC interim lightweight belt. This win directly puts him in contention to take on the WBC lightweight champion, Devin Haney. However, he is also speculated to take on the ‘Tank’ Gervonta Davis by this year’s end.
Both Garcia and Davis share an extensive beef. Unquestionably both of them are elite youngsters who have the potential to rule the lightweight division. This fight has the audacity to go down as a sure shot blockbuster for the year, and the rivalry between them just adds to its hype.
But it looks like the Devin Haney fight could halt Garcia and Davis’s meet inside the ring.
Gervonta Davis or Devin Haney? Who is an ideal opponent for Ryan Garcia?
With a sensational win over Luke Campbell, ‘King Ry’ has improved his resume to 21-0. Considering the fact that he is the WBC interim lightweight champion, he will fight Devin Haney next. If he dethrones the undefeated Haney, he’ll turn out to be a top-notch combatant for ‘Tank’ in a unification bout.
Haney is the most resilient lightweight and beating him won’t be a straightforward job for Garcia.
However, ‘KingRy’s’ recent win and momentum will help him stay high on confidence for his next bout against Haney. He will look forward to ironing out his flaws from this fight and hand ‘The Dream’ his first professional loss.
