Former lightweight world title contender Luke Campbell admitted he was surprised by Ryan Garcia’s comeback in their fight after being knocked down in the second round.
“When you lose, it’s hard to come to terms with it. It was a fantastic fight until the seventh round. This has not happened to me before, and I believe that the one who was the best won then. Garcia delivered a fantastic blow. I could not recover from it.
To be honest, Garcia turned out to be better than I expected. I sincerely thought that as soon as I started striking, he would want to retreat. This surprised me a little. I struck a fantastically accurate punch and his eyes closed as he fell. I think he was woken up by hitting the canvas. But Garcia got up in a matter of seconds, recovered, and it shocked me a lot. When Ryan got up, he seemed to immediately come to his senses, “Campbell said in an interview with YouTube channel iFL TV.
