The WBC interim lightweight title bout between Hull’s Luke Campbell and Los Angeles’ popular Ryan Garcia will now take place on January 2.

It was originally scheduled for the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California, on December 5 before Campbell contracted Covid-19 and the event was postponed.

The rescheduled contest will be at a venue to be determined.

The Campbell-Garcia winner is in line to meet the WBC’s ‘full’ champion Devin Haney later in 2021.
