Boxing fans won’t have to wait long until the first action of 2021, with Ryan Garcia set to take on Luke Campbell in a bout which had originally been scheduled for 5th December 2020.
The original date was postponed after Campbell has tested positive for coronavirus, with a new date now scheduled early in the New Year.
Rising star Garcia enters the match as the bookmaker’s favourite as he looks to build on an exceptional few years which have seen him defeat Romero Duno and Francisco Fonseca and extend the unbeaten start to his boxing career.
This won’t be an easy match though, as he comes up against the vastly more experienced Campbell, who was a gold medal winner at the London 2012 Olympics and will be making his first appearance in the ring since losing to Vasiliy Lomachenko in August 2019.
As well as the main bout, a number of other contests make up the undercard at the event, so there should be plenty of entertainment on offer.
