Ryan Garcia has never lacked for confidence, and it’s clear that ahead of a tough challenge against Luke Campbell Jan. 2 on DAZN, the unbeaten lightweight is coming in just as confident as ever.

In an interview with Kevin Hart (yeah, that one) on the Cold As Balls show, the 22-year-old Garcia touched on the fight, and made a bold prediction.

“This fight is gonna be the biggest fight of my life so far,” Garcia began. “This is gonna put me on that level where I get that respect. I think this fight will solidify me as probably one of the best in the world right now.”

“I know I’m gonna beat Luke Campbell and knock him out within three rounds, and I’m very, very, very sure of that, 100 percent sure,” he added.

This would upset me greatly, of course, as I have spent months in a haze predicting Garcia in 4, struggling at this point to understand how serious I am about it. If it happens within three, I’ll look absolutely foolish!
