That’s another mismatch, if it’s for a belt that’s one thing but otherwise it’s a pointless fight.
What a man to block your windpipe though, I mean, if your gonna have your windpipe blocked, why not the best fighter on the planet
Campbell is good fighter I thought he earned draw with Linares. I would actually like to see him fight tank.
Leave the Galaxxy Warrior alone!!!
Campbell can punch a bit and I think he looked really good last time out. Hooking up with Shane McGuigan was a great idea and the later has been working on increasing his size, strength and power in addition to technical aspects of his game albeit he was already very proficient in that regard. And another very beneficial thing about him hooking up with McGuigan is he's getting fantastic sparring with Josh Taylor.
Interview from last year
Calm down with the overrating. Campbell loss to Linares come on man. You saying he has the olympic medals. But so what? done nothing at pro level. Just think before you blab on. Wake us up when this guy beats someone with a pulse. Just stop, stop with the overrating. STOP!
Shane MgGuigan is a hungry young lion and the best sub 50 y/o trainer in the game. He is to training fighters as to what Eddie Hearn is to promoting them.
Sensational speed and power
Delicious feint downstairs to set up the savage HL reel southpaw left down the pipe
He's even managed to transform Campbell into looking like a man and not a 12 y/o schoolboy with all that S&C work he's done with him
I see a grown man when I look at him now, not that frail little schoolboy
And a little juicy bonus pic here
Campbell is the second oldest there believe it or not (Khan is the oldest) lol
Agree, I don’t deny his God given talent but he’s being matched horribly. How good is he...I’d love to find out, and genuinely hope he has amazing success but I’m over these weak fights.
Exactly my feeling/frustrations too. He said Pac was too old and won't gain anything by fighting Pac then he fights the Crolla , Pedraza and soon CAmpbell. No sense at all...
Loma wants some of that UK atmosphere. Sick of fighting in front of crowds who are more concerned if they get hot sauce with their nachos!
The Campbell fight is fine, just not great. Certainly a much better W than Crolla.
Campbell would beat Crolla in a complete shutout . Loma vs Luke would make for a much better match up then Crolla.
I also thought he did very well in the back 6/7 of the Linares fight. I had it very close, even with the knockdown.
Campbell is much better than 1 buck Crolla.
Crolla beating cans for easy belts don't make him any good.
Loma will still slaughter Campbell like he's a no hoper but it's a better win imo
I just hope Loma gets him before he has his crack at the belt. I don't want to see this kid get a gimme title against a no hoper. He should have to earn it against the best. I will be cheering for Loma to wipe the floor with him too.
My 2019 hope is for all Brits to lose their belts, and Young Christopher to win a title for Jamaica lol
I want to see Campbell vs Lomachenko, because I believe..in fact I KNOW that Campbell didn't show his best against Linares. Personal issues surrounded that fight, he wasn't in the right mindset in the buildup.
I think it's a close fight. One that Lomachenko wins, but I do really want to see it. If anyone in that division is going to beat Loma, it'll be Campbell. Not Mikey, not Gervontaa, but Luke Campbell. Because of those three, the amateur experience proves he is the best of those three. The stats can't be wrong here, Campbell is better than he has showed so far as a pro.
I've come to the conclusion that he toys with Mikey and Gervontaa. Mikey isn't all he's cracked up to be, although he had no chance against Spence, he should have at least won two or three rounds. The fact he didn't even do that shows he's not a real elite fighter.
And Gervontaa, well...he's young, lacks experience and only knows what he's doing because of Floyd teaching him. You can't rely on little tips and tricks against Lomachenko. He's a good fighter but he's two steps below Loma right now.
Experience rules out Gervontaa and Mikey, but it doesn't rule out Campbell and people should remember that.
