Kingry-Campbell rescheduled for Jan 2

The lightweight showdown between Ryan Garcia (20-0, 17 KOs) and Luke Campbell (20-3, 16 KOs) will now take place on Saturday, Jan. 2, 2021. The fight, which will be for the WBC interim lightweight title, will be streamed live exclusively on DAZN.

Additional information regarding the venue and the undercard will be announced shortly.

“With this new year, a new era for Golden Boy begins, and we can’t wait to unleash our international stable of prospects, contenders and world champions,” said Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy. “And what better way to start this new chapter than with boxing’s newest crossover star? Despite being just 22 years old, Ryan Garcia has already built a huge fan base, and once he gets past Luke Campbell, the sky is the limit.

“2021 will be a tremendous year for our company, and we can’t wait for our stable of more than 70 fighters—including 9 world champions and 13 regional titleholders—to play a significant role in transforming the boxing landscape.”

“My mindset going into this fight hasn’t changed, and my training hasn’t stopped,” said Ryan Garcia. “I’m excited we have a new date and can finally bring this to the fans. I’m here, and I’m ready to ring in the new year with a victory…let’s go!”

“New date, new year, same result,” said Luke Campbell. “I’m fully back in training and have never felt better. What a way to start 2021 this is going to be with a clinical Luke Campbell win.”

  • Who can even name 70 active fighters let alone have all these guys signed? Their top moneymakers, RG and Canelo, dont even like GB.

    • Man, right after the holidays…..Those fighters cant even enjoy eating all those fancy treats for the holidays…..Weight creeps up on them…..

  • With all these fights being shown without any audiences, maybe they should have these fights at Oscar’s mansion and televise it. That be rad!

    • It seemed to work well for Hearn/Matchroom. Jan 2 seems an odd date but maybe it’ll work ok under these circumstances

  • wait how can there be an “interim” title on the line? Daven Haney is the WBC lightweight champion and the gifted Teaflimo Lopez the apparent Franchise World Champion i mean come on dont give this shit away now

  • Haney got the title that Lomachenko took off of Campbell which Lopez should of grabbed as well so not sure how that works these lightweight fighters are all very good however so will be good for boxing if they eventually all square off wouldn’t matter if a title was on the line as far as quality fights but the money involved you just couldn’t turn down
