Campbell, also 31, is a British boxer who has also won an Olympic gold medal, and boasts a record as a professional. His last loss was a split decision to Jorge Linares, the only common opponent between himself and Lomachenko.
Campbell struggled with Linares, while Lomachenko stopped him with a liver punch late in their bout. Campbell has won his last three bouts, two of which were TKO wins.
He had a very successful amateur career and has won 16 of his 22 bouts via knockout. His height and range make his opponents underestimate his power, and he often catches them getting comfortable just outside the pocket.
He has a large technical arsenal to compliment his physical attributes, unlike some of the more limited fighters Lomachenko has beaten in recent bouts.
Campbell is two inches taller and has a nearly six-inch reach advantage, and both boxers are southpaw, which generally lowers the effectiveness of both boxers.
Speaking after the fight, Campbell was asked how good Lomachenko, arguably the world's best pound-for-pound fighter, truly is. This is boxing and we fight to win.
I'm disappointed in myself not getting the victory. Lomachenko was similarly complimentary of Campbell following the fight, admitting it was a difficult fight.
He had reach with longer size and hands. It was very hard for me to adjust to him. Lomachenko also expressed a desire to fully unify the lightweight titles, targeting a fight with Richard Commey, the IBF lightweight champ.
