What is Ryan Garcia's net worth? A look at his fortune as he beats Luke Campbell to become interim WBC champ
Ryan Garcia def. Luke Campbell by knockout at 1:58 of the seventh round to become the interim WBC lightweight champion
Early in the match between Ryan Garcia and Luke Campbell in the boxing ring for the interim WBC lightweight championship at Dallas on Saturday, January 2, Garcia established control through aggression, plowing through Campbell's jab to land his own hard left hooks and straight right hands. The former's hand speed made Campbell uneasy and hindered him from formulating a clear offensive strategy.
But, in Round 2, Campbell fought back. His huge sweeping left hook rocked Garcia's head and dropped the 22-year-old prodigy to the mat. Garcia picked himself up off the floor, composed himself in the corner before immediately taking control of the fight once again, ruling the scorecards and punching his way to the end of the second round. "I've never been dropped in my life," Garcia boasted after the fight. "I think I got a little too excited over the moment. I knew I was in control and I wanted to dog him. I wanted to crack him and he cracked me. ... I was a little dizzy. I ain't gonna lie. But it wasn't that bad," he shared analyzing the match.
Garcia seemed close to getting a stoppage at the end of Round 5, landing a big left hook and right uppercut that sent Campbell onto the ropes. Campbell was saved by the bell before Garcia could follow up. In Round 7, Garcia completed what he had left unfinished earlier, landing a crushing left hook on Campbell's body. Campbell's delayed reaction's brought him to his knees and he could not manage to get back to his feet as the referee's count reached 10, giving Garcia the knockout victory at the 1:58 mark of the round.
