Former middleweight champion (up to 76.2 kg), American David Benavides spoke about the performance of compatriot Ryan Garcia (21-0-0, 18 KO) in the fight against Briton Luke Campbell (20-4-0, 16 KO).
“I was shocked when I saw him on the floor. He pulls back too much and guys with overhand right like that. In this position, you should be very careful and watch out for the blows. But he returned, which is what a champion should do.
Ryan set the pace and, I think, broke Campbell’s rib, it was a hard blow. I think the reason why this happened is because Garcia has a fucking fast left hook, which makes you worry too much about your head, ”Benavides said.
