I really think Garcia’s speed and conditioning should stand out. Campbell fades in fights. I also believe Garcia has more tools in the tool chest, which equals more ways to win! Campbell will likely touch the canvas… He has been down a few times. Garcia had a good combination of speed, power, and counter punching.

Youth vs experience: Campbell’s experience and amateur accolades came at a much lower weight. I don’t think that will translate too much for Campbells’ favor since this is a lightweight fight (130 lbs.) against a fast and hard hitting younger boxer… not at bantamweight. The bigger question for me is how will Garcia handle someone that is a counter puncher like himself??? Will Garcia take the role of the more aggressive fighter in this match? Will he find a way to land his signature counter left hook on a southpaw??? I think this one goes the distance with much of the earlier rounds being a chess match and Garcia turning up the heat after round 8. Some close rounds for most of the fight until Garcia shows us what he’s really made of and takes the fight to Campbell

These two boxers match up pretty equally on paper, both have a history of fighting solid competition however, Luke Campbell has fought great competition in Vasyl Lomachenko and Jorge Linares. Edge in experience goes to Campbell.
Youth is on Ryan Garcia’s [22 yrs old] side, facing a 33-year-old Campbell. No edge to either boxer as far as height. The key to victory in this contest will be in styles, Garcia has faced a southpaw only once in his career, against Noe Martinez Raygoza, and to me, that doesn’t count, Raygoza was a subpar opponent and stood 5’5” on his tiptoes.
Garcia not only faces a southpaw but a Gold medalist, a skilled and talented boxer that looks him in the eye!
