    ODDS ON

    British backers of Luke Campbell will be able to find great value all over the internet tonight with the bookies.

    As wide as 8-1 for a stoppage win in some places, around 20s for a late win and 50-1 shot to win in the last two championship rounds.

    Plenty of respected Beitish names fancy CoolHand to do it late…

    'LATE BLOOMER'

    Luke Campbell's trainer Shane McGuigan says 'late bloomer' Campbell is entering his prime now at the age of 33.

    McGuigan said: “From a physical standpoint, even though he is 33, he is only really filling into his physicality now. He has been a late bloomer in that sense.

    “Luke has always joked about being a kid growing up and all his mates getting deep voices and facial hair long before him and he didn’t get it until a lot later.

    “I feel he is in his prime now. We are up against a fresh kid — but Luke has all the lessons he learned from his victories and defeats.”

    DALLAS NOW-BOY

    Golden boy Luke Campbell wants to come of age tonight — and prove he is finally a man on a world title mission.

    Ever since the baby-faced Hull hero won at the 2012 London Olympics he has been tipped for greatness.

    Campbell said: “I just want to be recognised as one of the best lightweights in the world.

    “I want to be recognised for everything I have achieved, everything I have tried and done.

    “I’m not interested in the glitz, glamour and fame. Just because I’m on a big stage, it doesn’t change my values, they’ve always been the same.

    “I have matured a bit later than most people — I look back at myself in previous fights and see a boy.

    “I’ve worked my arse off to get here and want to prove myself but still be the same person that I have always been.”

    EXCLUSIVE

    By Jack Figg

    DAZN presenter Kate Abdo has backed Ryan Garcia to come out on top against Luke Campbell.

    The Brit is hoping to secure his third lightweight world title shot with a win over the Mexican-American.

    Giving her prediction to SunSport, she said: "As a Brit, I’d love to be able to say Luke Campbell, but the truth is I give Ryan Garcia the edge.

    "I think Ryan’s speed and timing and his confidence right now outweigh the experience factor.

    "Ryan comes in off the back of those big early knock-outs.

    "Luke doesn’t have the momentum of a winner, and unfortunately, I think that matters."

    TALE OF THE TAPE

    How the fighters compare ahead of tonight's huge fight…

    'DO NOT BLINK'

    Garcia, a 20-0, still sees Campbell going the same way as 17 of his flattened victims, so is warning’s DAZN subscribers not to miss a split second of the action.

    He said: “I am ready, all the talking is done. 

    “I have put in the work and I am just ready to go now.

    “I don’t take anyone lightly, I have put the work in.

    “I am just telling everyone to not blink.”

      FIGHT NIGHT IS HERE!

      Luke Campbell is loving the underdog tag on his US mission to upset the new American golden boy.

      Oscar De La Hoya protege Ryan Garcia, 22, has 7.8m Instagram followers banking on him snatching the lightweight baton from Hull's 33-year-old 2012 Olympic winner TONIGHT.

      Campbell, who needs to win in Dallas, Texas to bank himself a third world title shot, is as wide as 3-1 to bring a win back from cowboy country.

      But Cool Hand wants to leave the bookies and judges empty handed by scorching the red-hot prospect with a knockout performance on the road.

      After making the 9st 9lbs limit, Campbell said: “I feel good, this is the opportunity I have been waiting for for a long time.

      “I have been sparring world class opponents and performing well so I am ready to go.

      “I have been the underdog my whole career, from my amateur days. It doesn’t bother me, I like the position of underdog.”

      When asked if he could trust the officials to score rounds fairly, he said: “I just view it as me winning every round and taking it out of the judges' hands.

      “Can I win a decision in Texas? We will soon find out won’t we.”
